Clinical case submission

We are now accepting clinical case submissions for the ERS International Congres 2020. Submit a clinical case.

Clinical case submission deadline: 16 December 2019 – 13 February 2020

Submission

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 previous years' calls 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.
