The online abstract submission platform is now open. Submit an abstract by 4 November, 2016.

Special features of the ERS Lung Science Conferences


Bursaries covering registration and contribution towards other costs are also available for up to 40 participants. Applicants have to submit an abstract in order to be considered for a bursary. Applicants must demonstrate a keen interest in lung science research as part of their future career. Abstracts selected for a LSC bursary would be automatically accepted for presentation at the ERS International Congress 2017 in Milan, Italy.

LSC Awards

3 competitions are organised throughout the Conference:

  • The Young Investigator Session Award: for young presenters (35 years old or less at the time of the Conference) who submitted an outstanding abstract
  • The Best Oral Presentation Award
  • Distinguished Poster Awards

Mentorship programme

Each abstract author who receives a bursary is appointed a mentor. Together, they can discuss both scientific and career questions during a dedicated mentorship lunch on the first day of the Conference.

Early Career session

A special session for the LSC Early Career delegates is organised every year, for the Saturday afternoon of the Conference.
