Publication and Prizes


All accepted abstracts are published in a supplement to the journal “Multiple Sclerosis” and on CD-ROM. Each participant was asked to decide upon registration whether he / she would like to receive the printed abstract supplement or the CD-ROM (choice of only 1 item per person). Upon registration on-site the participant will receive a voucher for the item of his/her choice. The voucher can be exchanged at the material pick-up counter. Please note that on-site changes between the abstract book and the CD ROM are not possible.

Abstracts can also be viewed on dedicated terminals in the e-poster area in the poster exhibition. As of 26 September 2012 regular abstracts will also be available electronically on the congress website (www.ectrims.eu/2012) and on the application for smart phone devices. Late Breaking News will be available on 10 October 2012.


Five prizes will be awarded to the best poster presentations (€ 1500, € 1000 and 3 x € 750). Award winning poster authors will give a short presentation in the Closing Plenary Session on Saturday, 13 October 2012.

Two additional prizes of € 1500 each will be awarded to the two best oral presentations given by young investigators (born on or after 1 January 1977).
