We are in awe. 490 of you have signed up for the Chronic Living conference! Thank you so so much.


Rest assured we will work hard to ensure as few disappointments as possible. There are venue constraints, but we will do our utmost. It will not be possible for us to accept all abstracts. We will now be reading through them and decisions on those abstracts which are accepted will be communicated by 22 November 2019. Should your abstract be accepted and you have yet to pay your registration fee, you must do this by 1 December 2019 at the very latest. In cases where an abstract is not accepted and the registration fee has already been paid, a full refund will of course be given.


Please visit this website regularly for updates, important messages will always be posted here on the front page of the conference website. Thank you! We are looking forward to an amazing event in April 2020.
