12th EOU Congress 2019

August 26 – 30, 2019

Abstract submission open


Abstract submission is open from 15 January until 15 March 2019. Late submissions will be accepted for posters only. All abstracts (including invited speakers) have to be submitted through this website:


You will be asked to create a new account with Oxford Abstract Systems, or log in with an existing account from other conferences.

You can choose to submit an abstract for a symposium talk, an oral session, or a poster. Symposia are organized on a given theme with a number of invited speakers, and one or two free slots for which you can apply. Symposia can be viewed on the conference website https://conference.eounion.org/2019/programme. Abstracts that are not accepted for a symposium, will automatically be considered for an oral session. Oral sessions are the main sessions for contributed talks. They will be organized by general topics (e.g. Migration, Community Ecology…). Both types of presentations have a total length of maximum 15 minutes, including questions and speaker change. Abstracts that are not accepted for a symposium or oral session, will automatically be considered for posters, unless if indicated otherwise at the time of abstract submission.

Once oral sessions and posters are allocated, we will contact poster presenters and offer them the opportunity to apply for a brief poster pitch presentation. Further details will be given at a later stage.

Note that each participant can only give one talk at the conference. The presenting author must be listed as first author in all talks.

Also note that speakers in symposia or oral sessions have to register for the conference by the deadline for early bird registration (31 May), in order to secure their timeslot. The conference registration is open from 15 March 2019 onwards. Please save the confirmation of your abstract submission, because your abstract submission number will be asked of you when registering for the conference.

When submitting the abstract, you can include a brief text to be used on twitter. The organization will automatically send out these tweets just before presentations start (orals, symposia and plenaries only). The link to the conference site is: https://conference.eounion.org/2019

We are happy to announce the opening of the official media sites of the congress on Facebook and Twitter, which can be reached from the congress’ website. By subscibing to one of these sites you can get updates about deadlines and news.
