A limited number of posters and hot topic talks will be selected from submitted abstracts for presentation at the meeting. If you have a new development or research relevant to the meeting topic that you wish to present, please submit an abstract by the deadline. Details on presentation options for submitted abstracts are below. Please note: invited speakers do not submit abstracts.
The Asilomar Conference Committee and the conference organizers reserve the right to reject any poster which is judged to be inappropriate or which promotes a commercial or personal interest perspective.
Abstract submission will open in September.
Abstract submission will close on October 22.
Session Preference Options for Submitted Abstracts
Poster-Only. This option is available to any interested person (student through PI, all sectors).
Poster + Poster Highlight Talk. Select this option if you wish to present a poster and be considered for a highlight talk (2-3 minutes) about your poster.
Hot Topic Short Talk. There are a very limited number of these slots available. Abstracts not selected for hot topic short talk will be contacted to confirm poster-only presentation. Abstracts which are selected will give oral presentation only (no poster).
Please note that abstracts are not required for invited talks and abstracts are not published (for invited talks, hot topic talks, or posters). Submitted abstracts are used only for evaluation and selection of relevant posters and hot topic talks. The spirit of the ASMS Asilomar Conference is to encourage discussion about the latest (unpublished) research in a topic area.
