For more information, read our FAQs.

Oral presentation

Each of the congress sessions has time set aside for oral presentations on a variety of areas in O&G. This is an ideal opportunity to gain experience of speaking at an international congress and expose your work to a wide audience.

Video presentation

In recent years videos have become an increasingly popular way of showcasing procedures and techniques. Video presentations are welcome in all categories and will be presented amongst the poster presentations. You will have the opportunity to make your video once your abstract is accepted so you won’t need to send it to us when you submit.

Electronic poster presentation

E-posters are an integral part of the congress and can be viewed not only by those attending the event but also by anyone else on our special e-poster website. Successful presenters have the opportunity to design their poster online so there is no longer any need to print or transport your poster.

All posters for the congress are electronic and the e-posters are displayed in the Exhibition Hall on 55 inch plasma screens and dedicated poster viewing stations. An on-demand screen is also available to display posters on request.

Best poster competition

The top 10 scoring abstracts who are selected for e-poster presentation will have the opportunity to compete for the Best Poster Prize. Two special sessions are being organised in the Exhibition Hall where these posters will be displayed and the author has the opportunity to talk to the judging panel, and the audience, about their work.

Publication of abstracts in BJOG

The top 500 abstracts from work presented at the Congress will be published in a special World Congress online supplement of BJOG.


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 fee of £42 per ePoster in order to be included within the Congress. Full instructions on ePoster submission will be given upon acceptance.

Submission guidelines and important information

Please remember that submitting an abstract does NOT automatically register you as a Congress delegate. Authors must register by the Early Bird deadline (29 April 2019). If the named abstract presenter has not registered for the Congress by 29 April 2019, the abstract will be considered to be withdrawn.
