Abstracts received before the abstract deadline will be considered for poster presentations and/or a limited number of oral presentations. If your abstract is accepted, it will be included in our online abstract booklet that will be distributed to all conference participants.

Any abstracts submitted after the deadline will be eligible for poster presentations only. Please also note that we can only allow one abstract per presenting author. Abstracts will not be published and authors also reserve the right to publish their work elsewhere.

All abstracts will be reviewed by the organizers to ensure that the topic of the submission is consistent with the scope of the topics covered at the symposium. A small number of abstracts will be selected for short talks by the organizing committee.

A condition of submission is that, if accepted, the poster and/or talk will be presented at the conference by one of the authors.

Successfully submitted abstracts will be acknowledged with an electronic receipt including an abstract reference number, which should be quoted in all correspondence.

If you do not receive acknowledgement for your abstract submission or you wish to make any essential revisions to an abstract already submitted, please do not resubmit your abstract, as this may lead to duplication. Please contact the Conference Content Executive with details of any revisions or queries. Please quote your reference number if you have one.

Travel Awards

We are pleased to announced that Mark Cronan, Duke University, USA has been awarded the 100 Years of Phagocytes 2016 Bio-Techne Travel Award.

Students, postdocs and young investigators submitting their abstract to this symposium by the abstract deadline will be evaluated for a travel award by the selection committee based on the scientific merit of the abstract. This award is intended to foster research conducted by a promising post-doctoral fellow, graduate student or young investigator in various areas of research under the symposium themes.

Family Support Awards

Elsevier Family Support Awards

Family support awards for this conference have now been awarded.

We are excited to announce that Elsevier has provided funds to help supplement the costs related to childcare responsibilities for early-career researchers attending our 2016 Cell Symposia. We understand that, in both academia and industry, the years following the completion of a doctoral degree are critical for exposure, recognition, and networking in order to secure or maintain a position. For many scientists, these years also coincide with starting a family, making it difficult to achieve a work-life balance and embrace one’s career objectives. Up to $500 per award will be granted to students, postdocs, and/or young investigators (within your first 5 years). Delegates with accepted abstracts are eligible for this award (limited availability).

Please contact: Cinzia Mamberti to receive an application form.
