Call for Proposals

Junior Professionals Call for Proposals

The online submission is now closed.

PURPOSE

For the 2023 edition of the European Bronchiectasis Workshop, the Organizing Committee has decided to give an extraordinary relevance and visibility to original scientific papers, on-going works and also to preliminary research outcomes, still unpublished works presented by young researchers and clinicians focused on Bronchiectasis.

The main objective of this initiative is to give opportunities of interaction, visibility, exchange and dialogue to young specialists, which can strongly contribute to the grow of the field, with new perspectives, results, data and improvements.

To participate to this call for proposals, you are invited to submit :

  • PUBLISHED WORK – Original scientific papers, on-going works published in the period 2020 – 2022
  • UNPUBLISHED WORK – Preliminary research outcomes, still unpublished works

TOPICS

The main topic areas have been determined and reflect key questions to be discussed:

  • AATD – Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency
  • Aetiology
  • Airways clearance
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Comorbidities
  • Epidemiology
  • Exacerbations
  • Imaging
  • Immunology
  • Management
  • Multidisciplinary
  • NTM
  • PBB – Protracted Bacterial Bronchitis
  • Paediatrics
  • PCD – Primary ciliary dyskinesia
  • Quality of life
  • Surgery
  • Treatable Traits

  • Virus interactions

THE CONCEPT

Junior Professionals selected will have the opportunity to :

  • Present orally a lecture of 10/15 minutes followed by questions and discussion during one of the sessions of the Workshop in front of an audience of about 300 specialists.
  • Discuss with the public the work and receive advices and ideas for the development of further research
  • Be part of the Faculty of the Workshop
  • Be hosted by the Workshop that will waive the registration fee and take in charge travel and accommodation costs (2 nights’ accommodation at the Faculty Hotel, Flight in Economy class or Train in First class).
  • Network with the specialists in the area and other junior professionals – many great works come out from ideas shared over a coffee in a congress.

SELECTION CRITERIA

To present a work for the workshop you should be a junior professional (up to 42 years of age). You do not have to be the first author of the work, but the one who will present it at the Workshop.

Beside what above, the main selecting criteria will be the relevancy and scientific value of the scientific work presented in relation to the topics of the Workshop, evaluated by the Organizing and Scientific Committee of the Workshop.
