45th meeting of the European Society of Lymphology

Brussels, 3rd and 4th May 2019


 « Comments about the Scientific Program… »

Pr Bourgeois (Belgium)


The following program needs some comments :


  • Some abstracts are in session other than proposed by the authors because the Organizing Committee feels that the other session was most suitable due to the content of the abstract…


  • Some abstracts (proposed as poster) were ranked so high that they were proposed as oral presentation…
  • The authors remain free not to follow this proposal…


  • Proposed timings for oral presentations have been « calculated » on the basis of the abstract…
  • If timing is considered too short by the authors, they are invited to present part of their methods and/or materials as poster… (what Pr P Bourgeois will do for his lecture)


  • The speakers must respect the proposed timings !
