Abstract information
Abstracts on all conference topics listed and any breaking news are invited.  Where possible presentations will emphasize the reliability of newborn screening processes. Reliability may relate to analytical accuracy, clinical experience or the robustness and cost effectiveness of treatment in eliminating or significantly reducing morbidity.  Contributions evidencing reliability problems experienced and suitable/practical solutions will be especially welcomed.

Submission deadline (closed)
Please submit your abstract in English before

Poster prize
A prize will be awarded to the poster judged to be the best in terms of quality of content and visual presentation.  Where two posters are considered to be of equal standing then the one more closely following the conference theme will be chosen. The poster prize consists of a travel grant to a future neonatal screening meeting with a value of EUR 250.
