Dear colleague,

From the 13th  untill the 17th September 2017, the EMSA (European Medical Students' Association) will organize the 11th edition of the Antwerp Medical Students' Congress (AMSC). This year will be in the theme of medicine under pressure. We will focus on situations such as warfare, (natural) disasters and shock. 

Presentations of innovative research are the cornerstone of this AMSC, offering researchers the opportunity to disseminate their findings and network with other medical science researchers.

Please share your knowledge, ideas, expertise, innovations, practices, case studies and opinion by answering this call for abstracts for the 2017 AMSC.

You can upload your abstract on our website once we have opened registrations.

The deadline for submitting your abstract has been extended to the 25 of August. We can not make any exceptions.  

Please note that your research does not necessarily have to be about this years theme. We accept abstracts from all medical disciplines.

All abstracts will be reviewed by the Commission for Scientific Research (Commissie Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek - CWO), which is headed by professors and doctors from our faculty.
Accepted abstracts submitted by registered delegates will be published in the Book of Abstracts, which will be distributed to all conference delegates.

In case your abstract has been accepted you are allowed to participate in the chosen contest (oral or posterwalk presentations). This year all research presentations will be held the 13th and 14th of September. 
In case your abstract has not been accepted by our commission, we would be happy to welcome you as a passive participant. You can then follow all our workshops, lectures and social activities from the 15th to the 17th of September. 

We will try to inform whether or not your abstract has been accepted as soon as possible!

Please take a look at our instructions for more information regarding the abstract and poster/powerpoint criteria (number of words, length presentation, etc). Or look at the abstract and presentation criteria page on this site (under the heading of Edition 2017)

We look forward to receiving your abstract and meeting you in Antwerp! 

Kind regards from Antwerp!
