Please review the instructions below and take a look at the submission forms. If there are any questions, please complete our Contact Us form.  Researchers who are new to the ME/CFS field, early in their career, from outside the United States, and from groups traditionally underrepresented in science are encouraged to submit.

We especially welcome submissions that:

  • Address treatment for ME/CFS and related conditions,
  • Compare ME/CFS to long COVID or other diseases
  • Exploit technological advances to support remote trials (e.g. wearable technology, home-based testing)
  • Explore the uses of telemedicine.

Research which has not been published yet will be prioritized although we will also consider "encore" presentations on a case-by-case basis.

For more about the conference, see the 2023 main conference webpage and summaries of our 2022 and 2021 meetings.

Research Abstracts

This section is intended for presentation of original research or research protocols.  The latter refer to plans for research that have not yet been carried out.  For protocols, Results section should describe what results are expected or may reveal whereas the Conclusion section should relay what the practical impact of the research may be on scientific progress, clinical care, public health policy, medical education, or other areas.

Submitted abstracts will be reviewed. If selected, you will be asked to present a 12-15 minute talk or to participate in a poster session. Notifications will be sent out in late April or May.

Workshop Proposals

This section is intended for 2-hour workshops aimed at clinicians, researchers, and/or patients/ caregivers. Please designate the audience. Workshops must address a specific topic in-depth. At least 15 minutes total of the 2 hours must be set aside for questions from the audience. The format is otherwise flexible (e.g., lecture, panel, small group discussion, demonstration) and can be decided by the submitters.  Up to 3 people may host one workshop.

Submitted workshops will be reviewed and selected. If your proposal is accepted, each presenter will receive a 50% discount off your registration fee.  Notifications will be sent out in late April and May.
