The EASD Annual Meeting 2022 will be a hybrid congress, providing the option to join us in person or virtual.
We believe a hybrid congress experience ensures that the global diabetes community can benefit from the latest research and innovations in the field of diabetes and offers various options for exchange and interaction, independent of the ongoing uncertainties regarding meeting and travel regulations across the globe.
We hope to meet you in person in Stockholm in September 2022 and - to those who might not be able to travel - we look forward to welcoming you virtual.

Submission of Abstracts
The following is a brief overview of the abstract submission process. Please read carefully the: DETAILED ABSTRACT SUBMISSION GUIDELINES before you begin the abstract submission process.
It is not permitted to submit work that has been published and/or is likely to be published before the EASD Abstract submission deadline (1 April 2022, 18:00hrs. CEST). The Programme Committee has the right to remove an abstract if this contains data that has already been published. However, EASD accepts the submission of abstracts that have been presented in recent months at local or national diabetes meetings (e.g. ADA, DDG). An author submitting or presenting work that has been published in a journal before the EASD Abstract submission deadline (1 April 2022, 18:00hrs CEST) will be banned from presenting data at the EASD Meetings for three years.
Abstracts submitted on Human Studies:
The box must be marked stating that the study has been reviewed by the Local Ethics Committee and that it has therefore been performed in accordance with the ethical standards laid down in the Helsinki Declaration (see World Medical Association: www.wma.net).
Abstracts submitted on Animal Studies:
The box must be marked stating that the study has been carried out along the “Principles of laboratory animal care” (NIH Publication no. 85-23, revised 1985) and according to the national law, if applicable.
Selection of abstracts for the Scientific Programme is made anonymously. THE ABSTRACT MUST BE SUBMITTED as follows:
Each author can be listed ONLY ONCE as the PRESENTING author (presenting author is always the first named author in the author block) on ONE (1) abstract. Each additional abstract will be removed from the system and will not be forwarded to the Review Committee. Additional abstracts will not be reviewed. Presenting authors may be co-authors of other abstracts. It is mandatory that the presenting author of any abstract accepted for presentation or discussion attends the 58th EASD Annual Meeting 2022 in Stockholm to present and/or discuss his/her paper. Failure to do so, without prior or adequate explanation sent to the EASD Office by e-mail, may result in the author or the institution being banned from presenting abstracts for the next three years.
Abstracts are welcome from non-members of EASD. Please refer to the Registration section of this General Information, regarding the date by which authors must become members of EASD in order to qualify for preferential registration fees. These regulations will be strictly enforced.
The abstract must be submitted in English. New authors should create an MyEASD account using their email address and a password. With this information they can revise the submission as often as required, make changes, additions, amendments, change/add/delete authors, copy special characters easily into the text, re-write the abstract or copy and paste the text in the corresponding boxes. All this is possible until the Abstract Submission Deadline: 1 April 2022 18:00hrs CEST. After this date the submission site will be closed. IMPORTANT!: Always double check that the “complete” status of your submitted abstract has NOT been affected after having edited it.
CHANGES TO THE CONTENT AND/OR THE AUTHOR BLOCK OF THE SUBMITTED ABSTRACT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED after the submission deadline.
Your abstract submission must adhere the following structure:
Once all submission steps have been successfully completed and the abstract deadline has passed, the presenting author will receive a notification confirming the final version of the abstract submission.

All efforts will be made to adhere to the programme as printed. However, EASD and its agents reserve the right to alter or cancel, without prior notice, any of the arrangements, timetables, plans or other items relating directly or indirectly to the Meeting, for any case beyond their reasonable control.
EASD and its agents are not liable for any other loss or inconvenience caused as a result of such changes.
Modification of the Programme
The organiser will make all efforts to adhere to the programme advertised. However, the organiser and its agents reserve the right to alter, replace or cancel, without prior notice, any of the speakers or arrangements announced, provided that the overall character of the event remains unaffected. The organiser will inform the attendees to that effect immediately by publishing details of the modification on the website. If those modifications are caused by any factor outside of the reasonable control and the responsibility of the organiser (e.g. a speaker is suddenly prevented from attending, any unforeseeable disruption at the venue), the organiser will not be liable for any loss or inconvenience caused as a result of such modifications.
Cancellation of the Annual Meeting
The organiser reserves the right to withdraw from the contract in whole or in part and to cancel the Annual Meeting if the performance of the same is impossible due to force majeure or other unforeseen incidents outside its responsibility including, without limitation, strike, lock-out, natural disasters, terrorism, riots, war, disorder, and acts of public authorities. The organiser will inform the attendees to that effect immediately.
In this case, the organiser cannot be held liable by the attendee for any damages, costs, or losses incurred, such as transportation, accommodation, costs for additional orders, financial losses, etc. caused by the slight negligence of the organiser, its legal representatives or vicarious agents. Apart from that, the limitation of liability remains unaffected.
Under these circumstances, the organiser will refund the registration fee but reserves the right to deduct any costs from the registration fee which have already been incurred for the organisation of the Annual Meeting and which cannot be recovered from third parties.
Limitation of Liability
The organiser is liable without restriction for any damage arising from loss of life, personal injury or illness caused by the organiser, its legal representatives or vicarious agents.
In the event of any other damage caused by the organiser, its legal representatives or vicarious agents, liability is limited to intentionally or grossly negligent conduct.
The above does not apply to claims relating to breaches of fundamental contract obligations. Fundamental contract obligations are those the performance of which is essential to the contract and on which the attendee may rely. In the event of a breach of fundamental contract obligations caused by the slight negligence of the organiser, its legal representatives or vicarious agents, the organiser’s liability for all damage is limited to the foreseeable damages typical of the contract.
