Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Netherlands Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (ESPEN), we would like to invite you to the 39th ESPEN Congress 2017, which will be held for the 3rd time in The Netherlands.

After the congresses in Maastricht (1981) and Amsterdam (1997) the Dutch society would like to welcome all ESPEN members to the World Forum in the Hague, our beautiful governmental and international city of peace and justice at the seaside.

The Hague is a renowned city with many faces, home to numerous cultures. Once merely a country house near a pond, The Hague has developed its international character and importance like a neverending story to which a little bit of history is added every day.

Meet the Dutch and their innovations in healthy nutrition. The largest greenhouse horticulture in the world - the birthplace of healthy food - is literally in the backyard of The Hague. First, we will organize a one-day Healthy Food Congress in collaboration with our Fruit & Vegetable partners on Friday September 8th, after which the ESPEN congress will be launched the next day.

In close collaboration with the ESPEN Committee Members, we have developed an attractive program that aims to be a landmark in ESPEN’s continuing effort to improve Nutritional Care and -Education. For the first time there will be 5 parallel sessions run along 4 ‘tracks’ throughout the program focusing on topics in the acute, chronic, pediatrics and geriatrics settings.

We are convinced that the programme of ESPEN 2017 offers a great opportunity for physicians, dietitians, pharmacists, nutritionists, scientists and nurses involved in the field of nutrition and metabolism to meet and discuss cutting edge science in an informal atmosphere, strengthening old and sparking new collaborations.

Scientific Content Up to Date
Submission Info

Delegates, who would like to present their work at the Congress, either orally or as a poster, are invited to submit an abstract for consideration by the Abstract Grading Committee.

A paper should not be submitted to the 39th ESPEN Congress if it has already been presented internationally.

Abstract submission is only possible via the online abstract submission form.

Please read carefully all the instructions available on the Internet and on the on-line abstract submission system before preparing your abstract.

The creation of a user account is required for the submission of an abstract. The account only needs to be created once and can be re-used for future abstract submission and registration to the conference. Submitters from last year’s meeting should use their existing account details.

Abstracts can be saved in “Draft status” to be re-edited and modified until the submission deadline (5 April 2017, Midnight CET). Abstracts cannot be edited after the submission deadline.

Abstracts fulfilling all criteria can be saved in “Final submission” status. Only abstracts in “Final submission” status will be considered for the Congress.

Abstracts are accepted on a wide range of topics in clinical nutrition and metabolism. The submitter has to select the right topic for the abstract on the submission form. Available topics are:

Nutritional assessment

Nutritional epidemiology

Carbohydrate and lipid metabolism

Protein and amino acid metabolism

Hormones, mediators and immunity

Vitamins, antioxidants and minerals

Critical Care

Liver and gastrointestinal tract

Nutrition and chronic diseases

Obesity and the metabolic syndrome

Nutrition and cancer


Nutritional techniques and formulations


Qualitative design studies

Perioperative care

For standardisation, the acceptable length of the abstract is of not more than 2’000 printable characters (title included). This includes non-visible characters, such as spaces and line breaks. Authors’ details and conflict of interest are not included.

Please refer to the word count of the system as slight differences may occur when counting with WORD or similar programmes.

The abstract needs to be structured as follows:

Rationale: this section should contain 1-2 sentences that clearly indicate the scientific question of the study and its clinical (or other) importance.

Methods: this section should contain sufficient information to be able to understand the experimental design, the analytical techniques and the statistics used in the study.

Results: this section should contain objective data to answer the scientific question(s).

Conclusions: this section should provide only conclusions of the study directly supported by the results, along with implications for clinical practice, avoiding speculation and overgeneralisation.

One table can be included, but the total number of cells (columns + rows) may not exceed 16. Please note that tables may significantly reduce the number of the remaining allowed characters.

A paper cannot be accepted if the conflict of interest disclosure is not signed. On the on-line abstract form, provide the requested details for all authors.
