Please note: It is not possible to give your presentation remotely. The main author (designated presenting author), must confirm attendance and register for the meeting. Register by Monday 15 July 2024 to receive the discounted early bird rate.


Abstracts are an integral part of RCOG World Congress and provide a platform for doctors globally, and all career stages, to showcase their unique work. 

In 2023, our World Congress saw 54% of all delegates submit an abstract. Top reasons to submit a poster that delegates mentioned were: 

  • Boost their CV and professional profile 
  • Publish new research 
  • Be featured in the BJOG supplement 

Please find below some useful information to support your abstract submission.

Tips for submitting an abstract

Ranee Thakar and Dudley Robinson discuss advice and tips on how you can submit a good abstract, and why you should take part in World Congress 2024.


The extended deadline for submissions was Monday 15 April 2024 23:59 UK time.


There is no charge for submitting an abstract, however all successful authors will need to register to attend the Congress in order to present. Should your abstract be accepted as an ePoster for inclusion within the programme, there will be a nominal fee per ePoster upload in order to be included within the Congress. Full instructions on ePoster submission will be given upon acceptance. 

Please remember

Submitting an abstract does not automatically register you as a Congress delegate. Authors must register by the early bird deadline, Monday 15 July 2024. If the main abstract presenter has not registered for the Congress by this date, the abstract will be withdrawn.
