Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the Local Organising Committee and the Portuguese Society for Enteral and Parenteral Nutrition (APNEP), we would like to invite you to the 37th ESPEN Congress 2015 which will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, for the second time.

The venue will be at the international Congress Centre of Lisbon (CCL) along the Tagus River, between the Jeronimos Monastery and the Belem Tower, both considered world heritage monuments. From the Congress Centre you may take the yellow tram which will drive you to the old part of town with its narrow and steeply streets. The City is just 20 minutes from the Airport and 10 minutes from downtown. Lisbon is a charming city with historic traces of the Roman and Moorish periods, with very old and typical neighbourhoods, but it’s also a modern, peaceful and safe city, where you can walk around at any time of the day. Discover an excellent cuisine (and wine!), a beautiful light in a friendly atmosphere.
Together with the ESPEN Committees Members, the local organisers have constructed an attractive and innovative programme and assure you that the meeting will be an important landmark in ESPEN’s continuing contribution to the improvement of Nutritional Care and Education.

We hope that ESPEN 2015 will be a great opportunity for physicians, dietitians, pharmacists, scientists and nurses dedicated to the field of nutrition and metabolism, to meet and discuss the most recent data in an informal atmosphere, strengthening old and new collaborations. We choose the motto “healthy life through nutrition” with the aim of exploring how a good nutrition from early in life to later stages may contribute to a healthier society.

We hope to see you in Lisbon in 2015!

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 37th ESPEN Congress if it has already been presented internationally.

Abstract submission is only possible via the on-line 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 (7 April 2015, 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

Late Breaking Abstract

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


The rules for preparing the abstracts can also be found on this site. Failure to observe these guidelines may result in disqualification.

Late breaking abstracts

Late breaking abstracts may be accepted until 19 June 2015, Midnight, CET with a non-refundable fee of EURO 100.- that has to be paid upon submission. The fee is applicable although the abstract is accepted or not.

Late breaking abstracts will only be presented as posters.

Late breaking abstracts are also published either in the Supplement or in the next coming issue of the Journal.
