Welcome to Dubrovnik

Dear colleagues and friends,

On behalf of the European Association for Haematopathology (EAHP) and the Society for Hematopathology (SH), it is with greatest pleasure that I invite you to attend the 20th Meeting of the EAHP-SH in Dubrovnik, Croatia. The meeting will take place at the Hotel Valamar Lacroma Conference Centre from 11 to 16 September 2020.

This is one of the largest conference facilities in the region, located in a green oasis of the Babin kuk peninsula, 5 km from Dubrovnik’s Old Town and approximately 20 km from the airport.

Call for Abstracts

Abstract submission opens on 13 September 2019.

Submit Your Abstract .

Give the best exposure to your research and science. Submit your abstract to present your work. The EAHP-SH 2020 Scientific Committee is now accepting abstracts on the continually evolving field of haematopathology. The submission deadline is 1 April 2020, 23:59 (CET).

We welcome you to start preparing your abstract under one of the following categories: Lymphoma Symposium or Bone Marrow Symposium.

LYMPHOMA SYMPOSIUM .

The lymphoma symposium will be devoted to “overlaps, borderlines and mimics”.

It will explore how an understanding of lymphoma biology is key to pathological classification and impacts on the development and choice of treatment options. During the symposium, special emphasis will be given to the clinical implications of basic and translational research and of differential diagnostic dilemmas.

Topics

Topics to be discussed will include high grade/aggressive B-cell lymphoma, classical and nodular lymphocyte-rich Hodgkin lymphoma, mediastinal lymphoma and their mimics and surrounding grey areas. There will also be a session on immune surveillance and escape, and their relevance to borderline and overlapping areas in lymphoma pathology. We are actively, but not exclusively, seeking abstracts that will complement these topics. Original research in any area of lymphoid malignancy will also be considered, for platform presentation during our “recent advances” session or for display and discussion in our “poster sessions”.

Abstract Submission Subject Headings
  • High grade/uncommon aggressive B cell lymphoma
  • Classical and nodular lymphocyte predominant Hodgkin lymphoma and its surrounding grey areas
  • Mediastinal large B cell lymphoma
  • Immune surveillance and escape in lymphoma
  • Other topics including recent advances

Bone Marrow Symposium .

An official personalized letter of invitation will be provided to registered participants as part of the registration procedure.

The bone marrow symposium will be focused on “overlaps, borderlines and mimics” of myeloid neoplasms aiming to understand how a proper integration of morphological, clinical and molecular data is essential in reaching a correct diagnosis and to guide treatment decision.

Topics

Topics to be discussed will include paediatric myeloid neoplasms and related disorders, acute myeloid leukaemia of ambiguous lineage or difficult to classify and adult myelofibrotic myeloid neoplasms. Abstracts that will complement these topics will be mainly considered but original studies in any area of myeloid malignancy will also be evaluated for platform presentation or in the “poster sessions”.

Abstract Submission Subject Headings
  • Paediatric myeloid neoplasmneoplasms and related diseases
  • AML of ambiguous lineage and other cases of acute leukaemia hard to classify
  • Adult myelofibrotic myeloid neoplasms

Please read the essentials for abstracts carefully as abstracts not prepared correctly, will not be considered for presentation.

  • Abstract text is limited to 2,500 characters
  • Abstracts must be submitted in English
  • Please structure your abstract as follows:
    • Background
    • Principals/Methodology
    • Results
    • Conclusion
  1. Two tables and graphics can be used
  2. All abstracts must contain original work
  3. Please indicate your preferred type of presentation (oral or poster) and choose a topic
  4. Please check spelling and grammar carefully. All abstracts will be published as submitted

The abstracts will be reviewed and selected by the scientific committee. Notifications will be sent to the authors via email no later than two weeks before the closure of the early bird registration for the meeting.

Kindly Note

All accepted abstracts will be made available on our website after the congress

Programme .

Main Topics

With the main topic “Overlaps, borderlines and mimics“, this meeting will be an opportunity to take stock of the state of haematopathology today.
