  • Methods: describe the study period / setting / location, study design, data collection and methods of analysis used.
  • Results: present as clearly and in as much detail as possible the findings / outcome of the study. Please summarize any specific results.
  • Conclusions: explain the significance of your findings / outcomes and future implications of the results.

Policies for Abstract / Video Submission

Copyright Policy
Abstracts should not include libelous or defamatory content. Material presented in abstracts should not violate any copyright laws. If figures/graphics/images have been taken from sources not copyrighted by the author, it is the author’s sole responsibility to secure the rights from the copyright holder in writing to reproduce those figures/graphics/images for both worldwide print and web publication. All reproduction costs charged by the copyright holder must be borne by the author.

Resubmission Policy

An abstract which has been previously published or presented at a national, regional or international meeting can be submitted provided that there are new methods, findings, updated information or other valid reasons for submitting.
If preliminary or partial data have been published or presented previously, the submitting author will be required to provide details of the publication or presentation. This information will be considered by ENDO 2020 Scientific Committee when making final decisions.
If the author neglects to provide these required details and justification, or if evidence of previous publication or presentation is found, the abstract will be rejected.


The conference organizers regard plagiarism as serious professional misconduct. If plagiarism is identified, the abstract and any other abstracts submitted by the same author are rejected.


Review and Selection Process

All submitted abstracts will go through a blind peer-review process carried out by an international reviewing committee. The ENDO 2020 scientific committee uses abstract scores and rankings to develop the final congress program and select abstracts for oral or poster presentation at ENDO 2020.

Abstract / Video Presentation

A small number of highest-scoring abstracts are selected for presentation in oral presentation sessions; the majority of the abstracts will be displayed in the e-Poster Exhibition.
Submitted videos will be selected either for presentation during the Video Marathon session, oral presentation sessions, or as ePosters.

Submitters who do not wish to be considered for oral presentation have the option of requesting that their abstract be considered only for ePoster presentation.

Notification of Acceptance or Rejection to Corresponding Author

Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to the submitting (corresponding) author. Please note that only the corresponding author will receive an email concerning the status and is responsible for informing all co-authors. Authors whose abstracts have been accepted will receive instructions for the presentation of their abstract/video.
If an author is invited to present and does not confirm their participation, the abstract/video may be withdrawn. Declined invitations will result in automatic withdrawal.

Common reasons for rejection:

  • Abstract poorly written
  • Clear objective and/or hypothesis missing
  • Linkage between different parts of the abstract not comprehensible
  • Summary of essential results inadequate and/or missing

Abstract Withdrawal

ENDO 2020 will withdraw an abstract upon written request from the submitting author. Requests for withdrawal must be made by September 15, 2019. After this date, ENDO 2020 cannot guarantee that a withdrawn abstract will be excluded from publication. Requests to withdraw an abstract must contain the submitting author’s name and abstract title. To withdraw an abstract, please contact endo2020@worldendo.org  

Publication of Accepted Abstracts

The submission of the abstracts constitutes the authors’ consent to publication. All abstracts accepted for presentation will be published in the journal Digestive Endoscopy (DEN) ENDO 2020 abstract supplement.

Please note this does not apply for submitted video abstracts.



The ENDO 2020 Grants have been initiated to support young endoscopists and their growing community.

The World Endoscopy Organization (WEO), the Japanese Gastroenterological Endoscopy Society (JGES), the Asia Pacific Society of Digestive Endoscopy (A-PSDE) and Interamerican Society of Digestive Endoscopy (SIED) offer grants. The winners will be selected from authors of abstracts accepted by the ENDO 2020 reviewing committee. Please note that the personal data collected for grant winners will be shared with the above mentioned partnering societies.

How it works

Abstracts must be completed and submitted to ENDO 2020 following the regular abstract submission process. After the ENDO 2020 reviewing committee has selected accepted abstracts, the three abstracts with the highest scores will receive the WEO Grants. Expert committees of A-PSDE, JGES and SIED will select grantees among the accepted abstracts from corresponding regions.

Please read on to find out about each grant.
