Call for Abstracts & Abstract Submission Guidelines

The Congress Organizing Committee is pleased to invite you to submit an abstract for consideration for the 19th EU-IST Congress.

•Abstracts must be submitted in English.

•Abstracts must contain original work that has not been previously published.

• Abstracts should describe substantive scientific results in the toxinology.

•Each registrant can submit only one abstract for evaluation.

•The same abstract cannot be submitted by different delegates.

Submitted abstracts can be considered for oral presentations (as "Short Talks" in the Symposia or as "Speed Talks") and for poster presentations. Posters will be organized by topic, and opportunities for presenters to explain and discuss their work to interested participants will be provided by designated poster sessions in the Congress schedule. Accepted abstracts will be displayed on the Congress website and app, and collated in an online supplement of Toxicon.

Assessment and screening

•Abstracts submitted for consideration for oral presentation will be assessed by the Congress Organizing Committee for scientific quality, novelty and, in the case of selection for Short Talks in the Symposia, the fit with the Congress subtopics.

•All abstracts submitted to the Congress will be screened by the Congress Organizing Committee for relevance to the Congress’ scientific content and presentation. Abstracts not meeting the quality standards will not be accepted.

•Notification of outcomes of assessment for oral presentation, and confirmation of acceptance of abstracts to the Congress, are expected to be available on August 1, 2018


•Abstract Submission deadline: August 15, 2018.

Your abstract title should be short and informative, and must not exceed 200 characters. The abstract body can have a maximum of 2000 characters (with formatting and spaces). The first sentences should provide the background of the work. This should be followed by the experimental details, with a conclusion of one or two sentences. Tables, charts or other figures are not permitted. Do not include any reference citations, keywords or commercial advertising.

Please, use this Template to prepare your abstract.
