Abstract submission


October 4th, 2024

We invite your abstracts on any aspect of OI research, whether basic, translational or clinical. A limited number of oral slots are available on the programme and priority will be given to abstracts describing novel research and hot topics related to OI.

We also encourage submission of case reports for discussion during the meeting. Please use the same abstract form to submit any interesting and/or unusual cases.

Presentations will not be recorded or streamed outside of the webinar and abstracts will not be published, enabling the presentation and discussion of unpublished data.

This is an opportunity for you to present and discuss your OI-related work with an international group of fellow OI-researchers in a relatively informal setting and without the costs and time involved in travelling to in-person meetings.  The aim is to facilitate collaboration and development of research in OI.
