The International Liver CongressTM will be held from April 13-17, at the Fira Barcelona Gran Via in Barcelona, Spain.


Most full abstracts (including some late-breakers) will be available on the EASL website on 30 March at 10:00 CEST. Once the abstracts are available online, there is no embargo and the abstracts can be reported on publically.

A selection of abstracts (including some late-breakers) will be held back for presentation as part of the official International Liver CongressTM press programme. These abstracts will not be made available on 30 March and instead the embargo will lift at 07:00 CEST on the day of their presentation at the congress.
