LATE BREAKING ABSTRACTS

The call for late breaking abstracts has now closed. Thank you to all those who submitted.

  • Mechanisms Underlying Normal and Disordered GI Function
  • Pain Mechanisms and Visceral Hypersensitivity
  • Pathophysiological and Clinical Aspects of Functional Esophagogastro-Intestinal Disorders
  • Physiological Control of Upper GI Functions, Including Relevance to Appetite Regulation

THE ABSTRACT PROCESS

When submitting an abstract you will be asked to set up an account with a password, which you can then use to submit additional abstracts as well as edit saved draft abstracts until the closing date.

LATE BREAKING ABSTRACT GUIDELINES

  • The abstract should include new material that has not been presented at an international meeting previously, and which is relevant to the themes of FNM2020.
  • All abstracts will be presented solely as online Posters (pdf format), in a dedicated section of the FNM2020 online portal.
  • Each author can only be listed on a single, late-breaking abstract.  This applies to all authors, irrespective of their position in the list of authors.  Please do not submit multiple abstracts.
  • Every late-breaking abstract must have at least one author who has a current registration for FNM2020. If you need to register for the meeting, please click here.

YOUNG INVESTIGATOR AWARDS

ANGMA and FNM 2020 are committed to supporting early career researchers in Neurogastroenterology & Motility, and we encourage the participation of our young members in the FNM 2020 Conference, and the presentation of their research work.

ANGMA will, therefore, sponsor 10 FNM 2020 Young Investigator Awards to facilitate the attendance of young investigators and clinicians to present their outstanding research during FNM 2020.

Each award will consist of AUD  $750.

Eligible nominees must be:

 

  • first author on the abstract submitted
  • a graduate student, resident or fellow (including a letter from the supervisor to confirm their status)
  • no older than 35 years of age
  • ticking the relevant box during submission of the abstract to be considered

The evaluation will be done as part of the abstract assessment process.

The Young Investigator Award winners will be announced at the FNM 2020 meeting, and the awards will be presented at the Conference dinner.
