You can either be a presenting or a non-presenter participant at ISCOMS. Both participants can enjoy every aspect of the congress!

Presenting participants
If you want to present your work at ISCOMS, the first thing you should do is send in an abstract. After the deadline for the abstract submission, abstracts will be reviewed by the organising committee with the help of experienced researchers and professors. According to the quality of the abstract and the research conducted, abstracts will be accepted as a plenary presentation, oral presentation, or poster presentation. Abstracts can also be rejected. If your abstract is not selected, you will get feedback about the reasons and you can of course participate as a non-presenting participant!

You’ll be informed about the results of the abstract selection in the beginning of March 2017. There can be no correspondence about the selection procedure.

After you are selected as a presenting participant, you will receive a link where you can register yourself as a presenter. You will also hear from us which session you will be in.
International presenting students will receive an invitation letter (with which you can apply for a visa if you need one) and an information booklet about ISCOMS. You will receive this via e-mail and via postal services.

Dutch presenting students will receive information about ISCOMS via e-mail.

Non-presenting participants
Enjoy the entire congress and expand your knowledge by listening to presenting students, visiting inspiring keynote lectures about groundbreaking research and actively joining in workshops. Be a part of the fascinating social programme. Get to know fellow students and relax after the congress days.

The congress is a mixture of scientific and social activities. This is what makes ISCOMS a brilliant experience for all participants, presenting or non-presenting!

The registration for non-presenters will open by the end of March. Please check our website regularly around this time, so you can register yourself quickly.

Target Group

The International Student Congress Of (bio)Medical Sciences is meant for all (bio)medical students interested in research.

Both bachelor and master students are welcome at the ISCOMS. Our target group consists of undergraduate and graduate students, or people who have just graduated but still wish to present their research conducted while being a student. Thus students can also present their thesis at the ISCOMS. However, we do not accept case reports (clinical or basic), reviews or literature studies (except for meta-analysis) as research.

If you will not be a presenting visitor, you can always visit the ISCOMS as a non-presenter!
