How do I register at EAS member rate?

The general rule regarding the member-rate registration at EAS Congresses is: payment of EAS annual membership subscription (from January 01-December 31 each year) means that you are eligible to pay member-rate registration fees when attending the EAS Congress the following year. This means that for EAS 2019 Maastricht: only Members who have paid EAS membership dues to the Society during 2018 (i.e., on or before December 31, 2018) are eligible for member-rate registration fees at EAS 2019 Maastricht: non-member registration rates will apply for Members who have not paid membership dues to the Society during 2018.

If I submit an abstract do I have to attend the Congress?

All accepted abstracts are scheduled in the Scientific Programme either as Oral or Poster presentations.

Only abstracts of registered participants will be scheduled in the Scientific Programme.

I have submitted an abstract, when will I know if it has been accepted?

Only after all abstracts have been reviewed by the Scientific Committee will notifications be sent to the abstract submitters. Every effort is made to conclude this process within one month after the abstract submission deadline. Read the Submission and Guidelines.

Please send details of any submitted abstracts changes to: eas_abstracts@kenes.com
