Before you get started…
Download the mandatory abstract text template from the submission portal and type your abstract in it. Please save a copy of the file with the abstract text only (no title or authors). This file can then be used for the file upload part of the submission process. The upload feature supports and converts tables within the document. Special characters are widely supported.
When entering the submission portal…
You will need an account to be able to submit your abstract. In the home page of the portal you will have 2 options:
- In case you participated in the ESHG 2021 conference, you can use the same email and password that you used to access the virtual conference platform. In case you cannot retrieve your access data, please use the “request password” option.
ATTENTION: The login for the abstract submission is not your ESHG member login.
- If you did not participate in the ESHG 2021 virtual conference, you will have to create a new user account by clicking on “Create account”. Fill in all required fields and save your personal information by clicking “Create Account” in the online form.
