Expedited Abstract Review for Visa-related Purposes

Expedited abstract review is available for those who need to apply for a Visa and who submit their abstract by the August 5 deadline. If it is after August 5, expedited review will be considered on a case-by-case basis. 
If you are submitting an abstract for presentation at the 2014 ASCB/IFCB Meeting and need to know if your abstract has been accepted before September 25, 2014, for visa-related reasons, please submit your abstract and email your request to abstracts@ascb.org by August 5, 2014.

Only abstracts submitted by August 5 by non-U.S. individuals with “Poster Only, “Minisymposia Talk or Poster”, or “Minisymposium Talk and Poster” as the presentation preference will be considered for expedited review and notification. We cannot do an expedited review for people who select a presentation preference of “Minisymposium Talk,” however, if you are selected for a Minisymposium Talk, you will be notified by September 3. Please note that if your abstract is accepted early, the acceptance letter will not include any presentation details (session title, date and time, board number, etc.). This information will appear in the regular notification email that will be emailed to all regular abstract submitters by September 25, 2014.

Please note: Expedited review is not available for late abstract submissions.
