Abstract Fees and Deadlines

Abstract Deadlines

All abstract deadlines are at 9:00 pm EDT on the dates listed below:

  • August 5 – Regular Abstracts (Minisymposium talk, ePoster talk and/or Poster Consideration)
    • For the first deadline there are three presentation types to choose from. You will be asked to select the appropriate presentation type and topic category for your submission. You will also be asked if you are interested in giving a Minisymposium Lightning talk or an ePoster talk if you are not selected for a standard length oral presentation in a minisymposium. The three presentation types are:
      • Minisymposium Talk: Abstract will ONLY be considered for a Minisymposium talk, Minisymposium Lightning talk (if you select this option during submission), or ePoster talk (if you select this option during submission). If your abstract is not selected for a talk, it will be rejected. Refunds are not provided.
      • Minisymposium Talk or Poster: Abstract will be considered for a Minisymposium talk; if not selected for a talk, it will automatically be considered for a poster presentation. It may also be considered for a Minisymposium Lightning talk or an ePoster Talk if you elected to be considered for one or both of these during the submission process. If you are selected for a Minisymposium talk, Minisymposium Lightning talk or ePoster talk, you will not present a poster.
      • Minisymposium Talk and Poster: Abstract will be considered for a Minisymposium talk (or Minisymposium Lightning talk or ePoster talk, if you select one of both of these options during submission) and for a poster presentation. This option allows participation in both categories, talk and poster. Even if your abstract is selected for a Minisymposium talk, Minisymposium Lightning talk, or ePoster talk, you will be expected to also present a poster. If you are NOT selected for a talk, you will automatically be considered for a poster.
  • September 3 – Regular Abstracts (Poster Consideration only)
  • October 16 - Final Abstracts (Poster Consideration only)

Abstracts are welcome from scientists and students in all sectors, including academia, industry, government, and education.

All abstracts submitted for the 2014 ASCB/IFCB Meeting are screened by Minisymposia Co-Chairs, ePoster Talk Moderators, and/or the Abstract Program Committee to ensure they meet the minimum submission standards outlined in the guidelines.
