Instructional Courses are didactic training courses targeted to a smaller audience with a focus on teaching.

Each applicant may submit a maximum of 2 instructional course abstracts.

Each application must indicate whether the chairperson/s, or any of the faculty members, has a financial interest in the subject matter or receives funds from any mentioned company.

You must indicate if your course is focused on a single company or product.

The course organiser is the “Chairperson” on the abstract submission form and will be the primary contact for all correspondence with the Office. We recommend that there are 2 chairpersons assigned per course.

REVIEW & EVALUATION

All submitted abstracts will be reviewed before final selection is made with abstracts ranked according to their average score.

The submission and review process applies to both new and repeat courses.

New courses will be judged solely on the quality of the abstract. Organisers of new courses will be asked to provide CV and details of previous courses/publications on the topic.

Repeat courses in addition to abstract, will have previous evaluation results and knowledge about the quality of the course also considered.

Specific topics that need to be covered in the congress programme will be taken into account when making the final selection of accepted courses. The decision of the committee is final.

If your course is accepted, you will be informed of this by email by the end of March 2019.

It is not possible to reschedule or cancel an accepted course. Instructional course presenters who fail to turn up or arrange replacement course speakers will not be permitted to present courses at future EURETINA Congresses.
