EFORT aims to provide worthy scientific guidance via the presentation of well-established medical techniques, but also to highlight new evidence in emerging fields. Renowned experts will discuss their procedures, the rationale for their decisions, their successes and failures. At the Congress, an important source of international knowledge and experience in the prevention and treatment of diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system will be within your reach. The EFORT scientific sessions are training programs with high scientific value. Authors invited to contribute to the scientific content of the Congress by presenting their work orally should adhere to the same standards, as their contributions are an essential part of the core programme.

As EFORT is the biggest European platform to share orthopaedic and trauma knowledge, an active participation in our upcoming 2023 Congress in Vienna, Austria, is the best opportunity to identify new data related to any specialty, gather useful tips and tricks to enhance daily medical achievements and expand the professional network.

The abstract submission system will be accessible through this webpage 
from 15 September 2022.

EFORT does not accept resubmissions.
Only abstracts submitted electronically will be considered.

After logging on https://scientific.efort.org/efort2023 follow the onscreen instructions precisely as they lead you through the system to guarantee a correct and complete submission. Please be aware that a valid email address and current institution for each co-author are mandatory. EFORT will communicate with authors via the contact addresses given during the submission process. 

Abstracts must correspond to previously unpublished work. EFORT reserves the right to reject your abstract if previously presented. Submission is defined by an initial branching to differentiate Clinical Research vs. Basic Science abstracts and Systematic Reviews. Please choose carefully your main category. Submitters also need to define the type of presentation i.e. Free Paper (Podium), Clinical Report (Podium) or Poster (Paper Wall Posters) wished. EFORT reserves the right to change the main category and/or the type of presentation of your abstract(s). 

There is no restriction on the number of abstracts submitted by a unique author or research group, but each registered participant will have a maximum of six abstracts (three oral presentations and three posters) accepted. Double submissions are automatically withdrawn.

Submitters can modify the authorship information, scientific categories and core data of their abstract(s) directly on the online platform until the submission deadline. For technical support and further abstract requests, please directly contact the EFORT Abstract Team at [email protected].

Authors and co-authors will receive acceptance/rejection notifications on Tuesday 31 January 2023.

The presenting author of a selected abstract must undertake to attend the Congress and present the abstract in the session and at the time designated by the EFORT Science Committee.

EFORT requires each presenting author to complete his/her full registration to the congress to validate his/her abstracts in the final scientific programme. Deadline for registration of presenting authors is Monday 15 March 2023, 23:59 CET.


Abstracts accepted as Free Papers are presented orally within scientific sessions embedded in the core Congress programme. Very high scientific quality is expected from these presentations, which should correspond to complete studies with outstanding results and innovative conclusions. To ensure that sessions run smoothly, please refer to the Presentation Guidelines available online. The best-rated Free Papers under both Orthopaedics and Trauma main categories will be selected to compete in the Free Paper Award competition and will receive specific guidelines.


All abstracts accepted as Posters will be presented at the Congress as print wall paper posters. Authors are welcome to add images, tables and detailed data to better document their work. A large display area will be dedicated to poster presentations and Poster Walks will be organised during the Congress to have posters evaluated by experts in the corresponding fields. To ensure that posters are under the correct format for display, please refer to the Poster Guidelines available online. Best-rated Posters will compete for the Jacques Duparc Award and will receive specific guidelines.
