However, these themes are not exclusive and the Association and its Scientific Board will be happy to receive proposals on any topic relevant to the overall theme of the conference.
How to submit a proposal. A 300 word abstract with the title of the paper and paper giver’s name is required. Submission of sessions of 3-4 people, with or without a session chair are also encouraged. However, the EAHMH Board reserves the right to revise these sessions, including the chair. A proposed paper giver should not also double as a session chair. Separate poster proposals are also encouraged. We would really like to see such proposals and a poster exhibition reception and poster prize presentation will be timetabled into the conference.
