Session Proposal Submission
The Scientific Programme Committee, chaired by the EASD Honorary Secretary, welcomes additional external session proposals to set up the Scientific Programme of the EASD Annual Meeting. External suggestions will be discussed and prioritised.

If accepted, your suggestion may be edited slightly to avoid overlaps in the programme. All proposals accepted by the EASD Scientific Programme Committee will be part of the final official Scientific Programme of the 60th EASD Annual Meeting in Madrid.
Submission of session proposals are handled via the EASD Abstract Submission System which is available via MyEASD. Only submissions received through the system and before the deadline date 25 April 2024 at 18:00hrs CEST will be considered for review by the Scientific Programme Committee.

Receipt of Abstract
Abstracts can only be submitted online and must be submitted before 3 April 2024, 18:00hrs CEST. Changes to the content and/or the author block of submitted abstracts will not be accepted after the submission deadline.

Submission of Abstracts
Please read carefully the detailed Abstract Submission Guidelines before you begin the abstract submission.
The following is a brief overview:
It is not permitted to submit work that has been published and/or is likely to be published before the Abstract Submission Deadline (3 April 2024, 18:00hrs. CEST). The Programme Committee has the right to remove an abstract if it 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 will be banned from presenting data at the EASD Annual Meeting 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.
The abstract must be submitted as follows:
There is no limit to the number of abstracts an author may submit; however, an author may only serve as the presenting author on two submissions. It is the authors’ responsibility to designate a new presenter for presentation scheduling conflicts that arise. If accepted, the presenter must be a co-author listed on the abstract at the time of submission.
It is mandatory that the presenting author of any abstract accepted for presentation or discussion attends the EASD Annual Meeting 2024 in Madrid to present and/or discuss the paper.
Failure to do so, without prior or adequate explanation sent to the EASD Office by email, 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 account using a login name and a password. With this information they can revise the submission as often as required to make changes, additions, amendments and change/add/delete authors. This is possible until the Abstract Submission Deadline on 3 April 2024, 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.
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.
In case of questions, or if you have not received a notification confirming the final version of the abstract submission by 16 April 2024, please contact the EASD office: email@example.com

Industry spokespersons or staff, individuals from public relations, communications or promotion agencies, representatives from organisations developing any continuing education materials or programmes, and journal editors looking for potential authors and publishing options are not eligible for complimentary press registration.

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.
