Apimondia Abstract Submissions

Abstract Submission Has Started!


This Apimondia 2023 Scientific Committee welcomes the submission of original contributions for oral and poster presentation at the Congress.

During the 48th Apimondia Congress in Chile there will be spaces for the discussion of all the issues and matters that concern beekeeping in the world. All of them will be distributed in conferences and symposia of the usual scientific commissions whose sessions are held regularly during the days of the Congress.

Abstracts can only be submitted online via the online abstract submission system. Abstracts sent by the post or e-mail will not be accepted. Rules and details about abstract submission here.

Abstract Submission deadline is April 1st, 2023. After this date evaluation period will begin and no late submission will be accepted.

Main Topics for Abstract Submission
