Call for Abstracts

Author(s) can submit an abstract for consideration and, if accepted, have the paper assigned by the conference committee to a particular session. Author(s) can decide between full (15 minutes) and short (5 minutes) presentations. Short presentations substitute the poster session and are of interest to authors, whose papers are still in the early stages of development. An author can present a maximum of two papers during the conference, although he or she may be listed as co-author in other submissions. The focus of the submitted papers can be:

  • research regarding donors, blood, blood products, organs, tissues, quality & management
  • diagnostics (serological, genetic, microbiological) in terms of donor health and eligibility,
  • organisational or clinical management of donors and donated blood, blood products, organs and tissue, or
  • management and strategy in working with donor health and donor relationship.

Depending on the number of submissions, some papers may be assigned to short presentations.

Submission deadline is June 28th, 2021.

To submit an abstract, please complete the template document following the guidelines provided, sent it to abstracts@europeanbloodalliance.eu no later than June 28th, 2021.
