Due to the COVID-19 emergency the HEAL Conference, originally scheduled for 4-6 June 2020, had to be postponed at first, tentatively, to August 2020, then to 3-5 June 2021 and now it will finally take place 16-18 June 2022.

The already accepted abstracts will be considered valid also for the 2022 edition.



In order to remodulate the scientific programme for the HEAL 2022 Conference which will be in presence, we kindly ask contributors to confirm whether the originally submitted abstracts (in 2019-2020) - or the ones sent or replaced in the meantime - are to be considered valid for the HEAL 2022 Conference.

We recently contacted all submitters and received many feedbacks, but would like to urge those who have not replied yet to send an email to abstract@meetandwork.com  BY NOVEMBER 30th, 2021, specifying if their submission is still valid or not.
After this date, NOT reconfirmed abstracts will not be considered any more.

There will still be the opportunity to make new submissions or update previously submitted and confirmed abstracts until DECEMBER 15th, 2021.


Please note: 

1) If your abstract has already been accepted,  and you do not wish to make any amendments, do not submit it again, as all accepted abstracts have been transferred to HEAL 2022 - but you are requested to confirm by email to abstract@meetandwork.com that you will present the abstract.

2) For revisions of papers already submitted and accepted: you have received copy of the submitted abstract/s and full details of your credentials, so that you can access your personal area through the submission link and modify or replace your abstract by December 15, 2021. If you need assistance send your updated abstract to abstract@meetandwork.com and we will upload it for you.

3) If you wish to withdraw your abstract, please notify us as quickly as possible at  abstract@meetandwork.com stating the title and possibly the ID number of the abstract to be withdrawn.


The submission of new abstracts is very welcome by the new deadline of December 15th, 2021.
