Notification of acceptance of abstracts 

March 2016

Abstracts will be provided in a laptop/tablet/phone-compatible electronic version and will be accessible only for meeting participants

Guidelines for Abstract Submission:

 

  • Abstracts for the poster exhibition can be on any area of cell and developmental biology
  • Maximum number of characters: 2000 characters including spaces
  • no pictures, photos or images
  • Please check spelling and grammar carefully. All abstracts will be published as submitted 
  • The abstract booklet will be provided online and in a tablet-compatible format.

Registration

Please note that the acceptance of your abstract does not include congress registration. At least one author (the first or the presenting author) needs to register for the congress. The abstract will otherwise not be reviewed and waived from the scientific committee.

Abstract Topics:

The program offers two poster sessions for which all together 12 different topics are provided:

S1: RNA biology/Non-coding RNAs
S2: Autophagy
S3: Visualization of membrane compartimentalization and dynamics
S4: Mitochondria
S5: Polarity and Signaling
S6: Migration/Adhesion
S7: Cell cycle in cancer
S8: Stem cells and Regeneration

GT: General topics

P1: Nuclear architecture/gene regulation
P2: Cytoskeleton/Mechanosensing
P3: Membrane trafficking/sorting

Presentation S1 – S8:

The short talks to be held in the Symposia (S1-S8) will be chosen on the basis of the abstracts by the symposium chairs.
You can either choose to prepare a poster only or apply for a poster that should be considered for a short talk.
Once the abstracts have been reviewed you will be informed whether your abstract was accepted as a poster or a short talk.

Poster Presenter (short talk):

  • Please prepare a presentation of 15 minutes including discussion (12 + 3 min., optimally).
  • You are also invited to prepare a poster in addition to your talk. (Poster size DIN A0, portrait format)

Poster:

  • Please prepare a poster size DIN A0, portrait format.
  • There will be two poster-sessions. You will be informed about when to put up your poster and when to take it down.

Presentation P1 – P4 and GT:

For abstracts of topics P1 – P4 and GT you can in principle only prepare a poster as there  are no short talks from abstracts in plenary sessions. However, chairs of symposia can request to scan the abstracts submitted to plenary or general subjects to see whether they would fit their subject and may use this for selection as well. Once the abstracts have been reviewed you will be informed whether your abstract was accepted.

Poster:

  • Please prepare a poster size DIN A0, portrait format.
  • There will be two poster-sessions. You will be informed about when to put up your poster and when to take it down.
