The ESGAR Programme Committee members have designed a new exciting programme including the presentation of the most recent innovations and hottest topics in our field and the discussion of the most controversial areas. These will be presented from a multidisciplinary point of view, making every effort to transmit scientific and well documented information and to promote the active participation and the generous exchange of ideas, experiences and knowledge between speakers and participants.
The European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR), is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME). The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS),www.uems.be.

The ESGAR Programme Committee invites submissions of abstracts of scientific and educational presentations for ESGAR 2013. Selected abstracts will be accepted for oral presentations (6 minutes speaking time, 2 minutes discussion) and for electronic poster presentation.
ESGAR TOP 20
The best 20 abstracts, submitted by residents, who appear as the first author on the respective abstract and who will actually present their paper during the meeting, form the ESGAR Top 20. Authors will receive a diploma, confirming that their abstracts have received the best ratings among other abstracts submitted. ESGAR Top 20 authors can be recognised by a special badge during the meeting. Furthermore a “Board of Achievement” with the pictures of all ESGAR Top 20 authors will be displayed in the congress venue.
The best ESGAR e-Poster presentations will be awarded a diploma. There will be one Magna Cum Laude, two Cum Laude and seven Certificates of Merit. The evaluation will be performed by a committee before the meeting and the awarded presentations will be flagged as such in the e-Poster System on site. Evaluation will be based on novelty, accuracy, educational value and design. Furthermore the pictures of all Poster Prize Winners will be displayed on a “Board of Achievement” in the congress venue.
