FIMSA 2018 Congress aims to provide research and clinical professionals working in immunology or immunology-related areas the opportunity to exchange ideas and share experiences. Furthermore, it will also present the latest breaking scientific evidence through our comprehensive scientific programs including:
• Autoimmunity and Immunological Tolerance
• Cancer Immunity
• Clinical Immunology
• Immune Activation
• Immune Regulation
• Immune Signaling
• Infection and Immunity
• Innate Immunity and Inflammation
• Mucosal Immunity
• T and B Cells
• Vaccines and vaccinations
Abstract Submission Guidelines
Authors are able to present published work, but are encouraged to include unpublished data in their presentation for novelty.
Only those abstracts that have been reviewed and selected by the Scientific Committee may be presented. Abstract submissions will only be accepted electronically through the abstract submission module; paper abstracts will not be accepted.
The abstract submission deadline is 30 June 2018
PowerPoint Presentation to be delivered by the submitter in scientific sessions.
Printed Poster to be created by the submitter and affixed on poster panels. Presenters are expected to be at their posts during poster sessions to present their work to other delegates.
You should indicate your Presentation Type preference when submitting your abstract. However, the decision on whether your abstract, if accepted, should be presented as Oral or Poster Presentation will be at the sole discretion of the Scientific Committee.
Detailed information on the presentation format and submission procedures (i.e duration and timing of the presentation, size of poster, accepted file type for digital poster, uploading information, etc.) will be emailed to all delegates whose papers have been accepted by the Scientific Committee.
Abstracts selected for presentation during the conference will be made available electronically. However, please be sure to carefully check your abstract for content errors, spelling, names, etc. before submitting. The Scientific Committee does not proof-read or correct spelling, typographical, grammatical, or scientific errors, nor any changes can be made once the abstract is submitted.
Guidelines for abstract submission
All abstracts must be submitted online through the abstract portal.
• Abstracts must be prepared in English only
• Abstracts sent by fax or post will not be accepted
• The text should not exceed 250 words
• Pictures, diagrams, graphs, etc. are to be omitted from the abstract
Authors who submit an abstract of a paper confirm that they have not previously published these data, that they have not previously presented them at a large national annual scientific meeting, and that they are not planning to present or publish them prior to the dates of FIMSA 2018
The Scientific Committee will evaluate the scientific quality of the submitted abstract on the basis of the following criteria: novelty of the research, significance of the findings, and clarity.
Authors submitting abstracts for presentation at this workshop should consider the followings:
Abstracts must describe in a succinct manner the purpose and results of the research so that the quality, originality and comprehensiveness of the work can be evaluated by the Scientific Committee.
Titles should be indicative of the content of the abstract. The abstract title is to be in Title case. All words necessary to identify the subject matter should be included in the title to facilitate electronic retrieval (if applicable). Avoid nonstandard abbreviations in abstract titles.
Abbreviations may be used in the body of an abstract if they are defined at their first mention in the text.
The combined length of the abstract body should not exceed 250 words. The online submission module will not accept abstracts that exceed this word limit.
The accuracy of the submitted abstract is the responsibility of the authors. Every effort will be made to publish the abstract exactly as submitted. Authors should prepare and proofread their abstracts carefully prior to submission. Errors made on your submitted abstract are likely to appear in print.
Authors are strongly encouraged to print a hard copy of their abstract for their records before submitting.
All PRESENTERS must register to attend the FIMSA2018 and presenters will not be given a poster number or an oral presentation slot until full payment is received for their registration.
If an abstract is accepted and the PRESENTER does not register, the abstract may be withdrawn. By submitting an abstract, the submitting author authorizes the abstract to be published by the organizer in the means it deem fit.
After the abstracts have been submitted, a confirmation of receipt will be sent via e-mail. Notifications of abstract receipt will be sent to the Abstract SUBMITTER only. Once an abstract has been submitted, it may be withdrawn or edited only until the abstract submission deadline.
Selection and Acceptance of Abstracts
Abstracts will be selected on the basis of their research merit. The Scientific Committee reserves the right to assign the format of the presentation.
The submitter MUST complete registration and payment by 15 August 2018.
