Abstract Submission

Abstract submission for the Asilomar Conference 2018 will open in June 2018.

A limited number of posters and hot topic talks will be selected from submitted abstracts for presentation at the meeting. If you have a new development or research relevant to the meeting topic that you wish to present, please submit an abstract by the deadline. The ACMS Committee and the conference organizers reserve the right to reject any poster which is judged to be inappropriate or which promotes a commercial or personal interest perspective.

Submission deadline is Septemer 27, 2018

Session Preference Options for Submitted Abstracts

Poster-Only. This option is available to any interested person (student through PI, all sectors). 

Poster + Poster Highlight Talk for Students and Post-docs. If a presenter is a student or post-doc, this option may be selected. Highlight talks will be 90-120 seconds (TBD). 

Hot Topic Short Talk. This selection is an opportunity for PIs or heads of laboratories from all sectors to present a short talk. There are a very limited number of these slots available. Abstracts not selected for hot topic short talk will be contacted to confirm poster-only presentation. Abstracts which are selected will give oral presentation only (no poster).

Please note that abstracts are not required for invited talks and abstracts are not published (for invited talks, hot topic talks, or posters). Submitted abstracts are used only for evaluation and selection of relevant posters and hot topic talks. The spirit of the ASMS Asilomar Conference is to encourage discussion about the latest (unpublished) research in a topic area.
