Late-Breaking Topics

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and postponement of ESPID 2020 to 26-29 October,

Late-Breaking Abstract Submission has been extended to 15 July.

There will also be several new sessions dedicated to pertinent topics, such as COVID-19 in paediatrics and more.

We are looking for (1) prospective studies for which results were not known at the time of the initial ESPID 2020 abstract deadline, but will be complete in time to present the results at ESPID 2020; as well as (2) important translational studies with emerging results.

Please explore the late-breaking abstract topics available below.
