We will follow the general guidelines for abstracts used by the American Society for Microbiology. A template to follow can be obtained by clicking here. Any field of microbial, immuno-physiological, and nutritional sciences pertinent to improving our understanding and manipulation of gastrointestinal function will be considered.
Specific examples include the following:
All submitted abstracts will be subject to peer review by the Conference Scientific Committee. Assignment to oral or poster sessions will be communicated to registered participants who submitted abstracts about 4 to 6 weeks ahead of the actual meeting.
All graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are eligible to enter a competition for the best oral and poster presentations to be judged by an independent panel composed of our invited speakers. When abstract acceptance is communicated, you will be asked if you wish to participate. Four monetary awards for best presentations (2 oral and 2 poster) will be announced and awarded at the closure of the meeting on Wednesday.
