Call for abstracts
The UK and Dutch Clinical Genetics societies invite you to submit an abstract for presentation and/or poster at the next Joint Clinical Genetics Conference to be held in Rotterdam. The program includes invited presentations on all topics across the field of clinical genetics.
The program committee has agreed to set aside multiple slots in scientific sessions for spoken presentations to be selected from submitted abstracts.
A separate session is planned for the Robin Winter Prize, the Ben ter Haar Prize and the Dutch Clinical Genetics Prize for clinical genetics specialist trainees (Research prize).
The abstract should include aims, methods, and summary of results in sufficient detail to support a conclusion.
The work should be unpublished and preferably not have been presented elsewhere yet for a clinical genetics audience.
Abstracts can be submitted for spoken presentation and/or poster. Abstracts that are not selected for spoken presentations will all be considered for poster presentation.
Closing date for receipt of abstracts:
New date: 14 January 2022 23:59
