Letter of Thanks for UEG Week 2016 Reviewers

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the UEG Scientific Committee, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you most sincerely for your contribution as an abstract reviewer for the original programme of UEG Week Vienna 2016.

The abstract reviewing process has been again very important this year, with a number of innovations introduced to improve especially the poster abstract presentations.

I know just how much time and effort reviewing abstracts takes, but without your expertise we would not have the quality that I believe we have achieved in the free paper and poster sessions, and UEG Week would not be the top international digestive diseases meeting that it has become today. Thank you!

We received a total of 3242 abstracts for UEG Week Vienna 2016. In total, 2050 abstracts were accepted, giving an acceptance rate of 68.97%. There are 403 abstracts to be delivered as oral presentations and 1647 as posters. I am even more pleased to tell you that standards have again reached a very high level and we can expect to be exposed to most interesting research and great presentations.

This high volume and high standard confirm that UEG Week is the most important forum at which to present your best research. We have received 52 video cases which were formally evaluated by the Scientific Committee for presentation in Vienna. As in previous years, late-breaking abstracts have been scored by the Scientific Committee for presentation in Vienna.

The quality of reviewing this year was excellent, but if you have any further (positive or negative) comments, please do let us know!

Finally, but most importantly, thanks to all investigators both within and outside Europe who have submitted their research to the meeting, and who are clearly contributing to making UEG Week Vienna 2016 such a great success!

Professor Magnus Simrén

Chair, UEG Scientific Committee, Vienna 2016
