Please contact the symposium organizers directly if you have questions about how your work relates to their session.

Who should submit abstracts and what are the format requirements?

All presentations (oral and poster) must submit a PDF of an extended abstract. The symposia and conference organizers will review the extended abstracts to determine if the work is suitable for an oral or poster presentation. Attendees are not required to present a poster or paper to participate in ICF15.

In-person attendance is a top priority for this meeting. All presenting authors must be registered, paid attendees of ICF15 and attendees can only be listed as the presenting author on one submission.  If you are involved in multiple submissions, please plan accordingly with your coauthors.

The extended abstract consists of a 200 word short abstract and up to 2 pages of additional text and figures (PDF format, 50 mb file size limit). Use this link to see the details of the abstract format and download templates. EXTENDED ABSTRACT FORMAT AND TEMPLATE

How are abstracts submitted, when are they due, and when are the acceptance notification sent?

Abstracts are submitted via this website, and you will be asked to indicate your preferred symposium or session topic.  Please note that you need to be registered on this site and have an active user account to access the form. REGISTER HERE LOGIN HERE

Extended abstracts are due on October 31, 2022 (extension announced 9/30/2022).  Abstracts will be reviewed beginning 10/1/2022 and and notification of acceptance will be sent on a rolling (as received and reviewed basis).  This approach will allow participants to register for the conference and file visa requests as soon as possible.
