The Fourth Mediterranean Emergency Medicine Congress (MEMC IV) - 15-19 September 2007 - Sorrento, Italy


Call for Abstracts

The deadline for submitting abstracts has been extended to 31 May 2007 and to 30 June for poster presentation ONLY. ONLY abstracts that have been submitted in final form on or before the early deadline of 31 May will be considered for oral presentation at MEMC IV and for publication in the Journal of Emergency Medicine and the European Journal of Emergency Medicine as one of the “top-scoring” abstracts at MEMC IV. Abstracts submitted between 1 June and 30 June will only be considered for poster presentation at the meeting and will not be reviewed for publication in the journals. 

Members of EuSEM, AAEM, and SIMEU, as well as non-members are eligible to submit abstracts. The Research Forum will consider for acceptance abstracts that have been previously presented at other national, regional, and international scientific meetings. Submitting an abstract does not register you for MEMC IV; you must register for the Congress.

Submission Instructions
Go to to begin the online abstract submission process. Click on the "Submit an Abstract" button to access the Call4Abstracts™ system, which includes complete instructions on the process. Paper and disk submissions will NOT be accepted. MEMC organisers expect that all abstracts selected for presentation will be presented by the authors and that submitted abstracts will not be withdrawn. Please do not submit an abstract if you are not able to travel to the Congress and present it in the form selected.

Abstracts accepted for oral or poster presentation will be published in the Abstract Syllabus, which will be provided at the Congress. The Journal of Emergency Medicine (JEM) and the European Journal of Emergency Medicine (EJEM) will publish the 40 abstracts that receive the highest review scores, as determined by the EuSEM-AAEM Abstract Review Committee. Abstracts will also be considered for publication in one of our journals only if the author is registered at the close of abstract submission.

Review Process and Scoring Criteria
Abstracts will be peer-reviewed in blinded fashion.

Authors will be notified if their abstract has been selected for oral or poster presentation, along with a schedule for presentation. Notification regarding acceptance or rejection of abstracts will be made by 15 June 2007. Further details regarding placement as an oral or poster presentation, as well as date of presentation will follow as soon as possible. If you do not receive any notification of your abstract's status, please contact:
