Clinical case submission

Clinical Case submission for the ERS International Congress 2019 will open in mid-December, 2018 until 14 February, 2019.

Submission

Continuing from last year, we are offering you an opportunity to submit your interesting clinical cases for inclusion in the Congress programme as part of a range of educational activities. We had a very positive response to last year's call and the clinical cases submitted were very valuable as an educational resource – strongly supporting our offering of case based sessions.

This is a great opportunity for respiratory professionals to share their experiences, have their case presented in front of key opinion leaders in the field and be acknowledge as active contributors in the largest meeting in the respiratory field.

All respiratory professionals with interesting clinical cases are encouraged to submit a case for consideration.

  • The deadline for submissions is Thursday, 14 February, 2019 at 23:59 CET.
