Review Process

The submitted abstracts have been examined anonymously by the ESICM Reviewers. We thank the abstracts submitters and congratulate those selected. We also encourage the authors not selected to resubmit for the ESICM LIVES 2022 in Paris.

The authors have been informed of acceptance/rejection of their abstract by email on 26 April. All abstracts selected for mandatory presentation at the Conference will be presented as poster presentations. There will be no publication in the ICMx Journal (no Abstract Book) for LIVES Forum.

The abstract submission system closed on 04 April 2022. Abstract submitters received an e-mail confirmation immediately after submitting their abstract. If you did not receive this e-mail, please contact the Abstract Department.
