If your abstract is accepted as part of ESPE 2021 Online, your work will be accessible to thousands of clinicians and researchers working in paediatric endocrinology.

Sharing an abstract also gives you the opportunity to get useful feedback, helping you to progress your work, and boost your networking and presentation skills.

There are several prizes and grants associated with high scoring accepted abstracts, including for undergraduates (see below for more info).

Abstract Deadline – Monday 10 May 2021 (23:59 CEST)

Please note that abstracts are accepted on the understanding that the work has not been published or presented elsewhere.

Accepted abstracts will be presented at the virtual event as an ePoster or as an oral presentation, and will be published online in Hormone Research in Paediatrics.

Authors will be informed of the decision of their abstract in July 2021.

Please be aware that ESPE will not be re-opening for late-breaking submissions this year – make sure to submit before the deadline on Monday 10 May 2021.

The abstract categories are:

  • Diabetes and insulin
  • Fat, metabolism and obesity

Abstract Guidelines

  • Abstracts must be no longer than 400 words.

  • Tables can be included in the abstract text but will be included in the word count.

  • Figures will not be accepted by the submission system.

  • ESPE do not accept encore abstracts – any abstract previously presented at another congress will need to include new data and be re-written for consideration for ESPE 2021 Online.
