Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear colleagues and friends

On behalf of ECTRIMS and its Executive Committee, it is our pleasure to welcome you to London on the occasion of the 32nd Congress from 14 to 17 September 2016.

The 2016 Congress will be the first ever held in the United Kingdom, a country that has contributed much to research and treatment in MS. Many excellent UK-based scientists and clinicians have focused their career on MS, none more so than Professor Ian McDonald, who was active during the latter decades of the twentieth century and whose name is given to the McDonald diagnostic criteria. It is indeed appropriate that the United Kingdom will host an ECTRIMS Congress.

The Congress will offer comprehensive and exciting scientific and teaching programmes. A preliminary scientific programme has been developed with the assistance of the Local Organising Committee. There will be plenary, platform, young investigator, hot topic (some in a debate format) and poster sessions. Themes will include disease mechanisms, prognostic markers, developments in imaging, approaches to early treatment, the latest clinical trial results, and emerging targets for modulation of the innate immune system, neuroprotection and repair. While MS is the main focus, there will be talks on other inflammatory demyelinating CNS diseases. There will be a special section of the programme for MS nurses and symposia sponsored by the European Charcot Foundation and industry. The meeting will also partner with the Annual Conference of Rehabilitation in MS (RIMS).

The Congress will be held at the ExCeL Centre, a modern state-of- the-art facility in east London and close by the London City Airport, which has direct connections to many destinations throughout Europe. London is the largest city in Europe and also one of the oldest. It offers a virtually unlimited range of attractions, including many famous sights (old and new), galleries, museums, theatres, pubs and restaurants.  It has an extensive and efficient public transport system and was host to the highly successful 2012 Summer Olympics. In attending ECTRIMS 2016, you will not only update on all the latest developments in MS - you will also enjoy a few days in this extraordinary city.

Please mark ECTRIMS 2016 London in your calendars now! We look forward to welcoming you next year for a week that is sure to be rich in science, education and general enjoyment.

The presenting author of an accepted abstract must register and attend the congress.

Poster presenters must be present and stand by their posters during their assigned poster sessions.

Abstracts should contain only original material not published or presented elsewhere prior to 17 September 2016.

Provide a short specific title indicating the nature of the investigation. The background and goals of the study should appear clearly to the reader. The methods and results must contain data, and the conclusions should be clearly expressed.

The abstract text may not be longer than 2500 characters including spaces (ca. 300 words).

All abbreviations must be defined the first time they appear in your text (but, do not define in the title).

Authors should indicate their presentation preference:

Note: "Poster presentation only" implies that your abstract will be considered for poster presentation only and will not be eligible for the poster prize (see corresponding paragraph Prizes).

The Scientific Programme Committee reserves the right to decide on the final allocation and presentation method.

A selected number of abstracts will be accepted for oral presentation based on their scientific merits and on their relation to the topics addressed in the scientific programme of the Congress. We therefore encourage submissions on the main topics covered in the scientific programme.

Disclosure of conflict of interest (e.g. grant support, consultancy, membership on advisory councils, speaker’s bureau) by all authors and source of funding are mandatory. Each listed author should prepare a one sentence statement to this effect.

Abstracts from commercial entities will be considered. However, abstracts reporting results from collaborative research conducted by independent (non-company) investigators and investigators who are employees of commercial entities will not be accepted unless the independent (academic, clinician and/or scientist) investigators are included as authors.

Please make sure to state your correct e-mail address. After having submitted your abstract, you will receive a confirmation by e-mail with the following information:

reference number of your abstract (for correspondence and questions that might arise)

your personal user code and password.

If you do not receive a confirmation by e-mail please contact

Should you wish to make corrections to an abstract already submitted or if you wish to submit other abstracts later, you may use your personal access codes. This will shorten the submission procedure.

Corrections to abstracts can only be made up to the deadline of 26 April 2016.

We kindly ask you to upload a picture of the presenting author. Please prepare the photo in one of the following formats: JPG, GIF or PNG, with a max. size of 1 MB.
