Words of Welcome
Welcome to the 19th Congress of the European Hematology Association! Welcome to Milan! This year’s congress program is tailored to meet the needs of the large variety of specialties and interest fields and has been compiled by the Scientific Program Committee and the Advisory Board under the leadership of Pieter Sonneveld (Erasmus Medical Center, Rotterdam, the Netherlands).
A staggering 2342 abstracts have been submitted for inclusion in the program this year. After a thorough review by the abstract reviewers exactly 200 abstracts are selected for a presentation in one of the 40 oral sessions covering all fields of hematology.
This year we introduced the late breaking procedure for data that was not available at the time of the regular submission deadline. The most exciting results have been selected and two oral sessions have been composed. You are invited to the late breaking abstract sessions on Saturday, June 14 from 13:15 to 14:15.
Navigating the congress program
A program of this size needs some navigational tools and therefore we recommend downloading the mobile app of the congress. Returning this year also are Tracks in Hematology. Each session is colored by main topics based on the Hematology Curriculum, allowing you to easily navigate the inner program pages and to recognize sessions of interest easily. Check the program overview pages for your colors of interest.
This year you will find in the program pages only the presenting author but in the index pages all the authors are published. Use the mobile app also to search for abstracts, authors, posters and oral presentations. Full author details are available via the app, the abstracts on the EHA website and the Abstract Book.
