Abstract Submission Guidelines

Abstract preparation

  • All abstracts must be submitted in English, via the online abstract submission system.
  • Abstracts will be selected based on their scientific merit and the quality and novelty of data presented; it is therefore essential that you clearly and succinctly describe aims, procedures, major findings, and the significance of the research reported. Abstracts containing insufficient information for review will be rejected.
  • Abstracts MAY NOT:
    • advertise a commercial product;
    • contain a list of literature references, or acknowledgements of financial or other support;
    • include graphics or tables;
    • use, or depend on, character formatting such as bold, italics, superscript, symbol fonts.
  • Abstracts MUST:
    • be submitted in their final state and will be reproduced directly from the online submission – any errors in spelling, grammar or scientific data will appear in print as submitted;
    • include the title (max. 200 characters incl. spaces, avoiding ALL CAP spelling);
    • be structured in 3 single-paragraph sections (Background max. 500 characters incl. spaces, Observations max. 1,200 characters incl. spaces, Conclusions max. 300 characters incl. spaces);
    • be submitted with the agreement of all listed authors;
    • be submitted with a licence granted to EMBO to publish the accepted abstract in the conference book, and to make the book available to all registered participants in printed and electronic form.
  • More detailed instructions are available on the submission form.
  • EMBO reserves the right to reject submissions that fail to comply with the above regulations, and to remove reference lists, acknowledgements and commercial advertising from accepted abstracts without prior notice.
