Science Lounge: Posters & Networking 

This is the place to meet your peers for networking and scientific exchange! In addition to Moderated Poster Sessions and the poster exhibition, you can use this area for face-to-face interaction with other delegates. All posters will be featured on terminals thus allowing delegates an experience similar to walking through our physical poster exhibition. The virtual exhibition will additionally feature the possibility to play previously recorded audio presentations. All Poster presenters are invited to include such a recording of their presentation.
The Moderated Poster session area is exclusively available to all on-site delegates.

Hands-on Area

The Hands-on Area at UEG Week offers excellent training for practical minded gastroenterologists to advance their knowledge, remain up to date and practice techniques that are in-demand. Look, learn, ask questions and perform techniques under personal doctor and nurse tutoring in the Endoscopy or Ultrasound Learning Area. Thanks to our collaborators, ESGE, ESGENA, EFSUMB and BICUS for their excellent cooperation in running the Learning Areas.

Our Live TV Studio

Occurring in our TV Studio in-person and virtually, our Vienna Live Sessions will include in-depth scientific discussions, interviews with top leaders in the field and controversial debates. We will broadcast up to 6 times each day. Each broadcast will feature dynamic scientific highlights, providing an interactive delegate experience! 

Fresh formats: It is our pleasure to introduce the following ground-breaking TV Studio formats – all of which are brand new as of 2022!

UEG Week: Digging deeper  

This unseen concept is truly where the GI community meets society. Focused on the riveting topics of, “Forced immigration: Influences on our medical care”, “Are we ready to accept a medical decision by AI?”, and “Should treatment in GI be economically driven?”, these hot discussions will always feature 2 digestive health experts, 1 non-GI expert who specialises in the related field and our professional moderator. Join us on this exciting journey into uncharted UEG territory.

Abstract-based Sessions

The most important feature of UEG Week is the science, and this is recognised in the programme through the large number of Abstract-based Sessions devoted to original research. These sessions allow lively discussions about the best original research submitted to UEG Week and provide delegates an opportunity to hear about GI and liver research both in Europe and worldwide before it is published.

Late Breaking Abstracts

This year the deadline for late breaking submissions is again as close as possible to UEG Week, to ensure that state-of-the-art research with up-to-date results, which might be ready just in time before the congress, can be submitted. Make sure to attend these sessions to get an update on the latest and greatest science!
