The call for abstracts DEADLINE IS EXTENDED UNTILL JANUARY 14, 2022!


Despite the uncertain situation surrounding the coronavirus, we would still like to give everyone who wants to contribute to the EAHIL2022 conference the opportunity to submit an abstract. Therefore, we have decided that for those who are unable to attend the conference in person, we will offer the option to present their submission online.


So if you have something interesting to say, don't let travel restrictions stop you and submit an abstract!


Since this decision comes just before the holidays, we have decided to postpone the deadline to 14 January 2022.
