The FNM 2020 Organising Committee invites you to submit your abstract for the upcoming Federation of Neurogastroenterology & Motility Meeting.

We welcome the submission of abstracts in all areas related to basic, clinical and translational aspects of neurogastroenterology and motility. The following sections provide guidelines for the preparation and submission of abstracts, as well as details about available awards and application criteria.



Please choose one topic (as listed below) that best represents the content of the abstract. Final allocation of abstracts to themes will, however, be decided by the Program Committee, based on programming needs.


  • Mechanisms Underlying Normal and Disordered GI Function
  • Pain Mechanisms and Visceral Hypersensitivity
  • Pathophysiological and Clinical Aspects of Functional Esophagogastro-Intestinal Disorders
  • Physiological Control of Upper GI Functions, Including Relevance to Appetite Regulation
  • Role of Microbiome and Diet in GI Function
  • Technologies for the Assessment of Esophagogastrointestinal Motility and Perception
  • Therapies for Disordered Gut Function and Functional GI Disorders
 When submitting an abstract you will be asked to set up an account with a password, which you can then use to submit additional abstracts as well as edit saved draft abstracts until the closing date.


You will be required to select your preferred method of presentation, either Oral or Poster. Please understand that ANGMA Scientific Committee may not be able to accommodate your primary choice. Final decision lies with the Program Committee.



ANGMA and FNM 2020 are committed to supporting early career researchers in Neurogastroenterology & Motility, and we encourage the participation of our young members in the FNM 2020 Conference, and the presentation of their research work.


ANGMA will, therefore, sponsor 10 FNM 2020 Young Investigator Awards to facilitate the attendance of young investigators and clinicians to present their outstanding research during FNM 2020.


Each award will consist of AUD $750.


Eligible nominees must be

·         first author on the abstract submitted

·         a graduate student, resident or fellow (including a letter from the supervisor to confirm their status)

·         no older than 35 years of age

·         ticking the relevant box during submission of the abstract to be considered


The evaluation will be done as part of the abstract assessment process.

The Young Investigator Award winners will be announced at the FNM 2020 meeting, and the awards will be presented at the Conference dinner.



Authors acknowledge that they may be required to present on any day of the Conference. All presenting authors must register and pay for their own registration, accommodation and travel for their attendance at FNM 2020. The Conference does not provide financial assistance/scholarships.
