Call for abstracts
Abstracts must be submitted online through the ISMRC website which hosts an electronic
abstract submission form. Each presenter can only submit one abstract. Deadline for abstract submission is May 24, 2013.
ISMRC Young Investigator Travel Grant
The Young Investigator Travel Grant is awarded to the three top Young Investigators who are selected to present an oral or plenary poster presentation at the ISMRC Annual Meeting. ISMRC Young Investigator Travel Grant recipients will receive € 600 (USA); € 600 (ASIA) & € 300 (Europe) to support travel to the Meeting.
These grants will be officially announced and given during the dinner on Thursday September 26.
Eligible applicants must:
- Be the first and presenting author of the abstract
- Be a student/trainee or within five years of completion of a Ph.D., M.D.,
residency training or equivalent.
Posters and oral communications
All abstracts will be submitted to the scientific committee that will select the best presentations as an oral communication during the symposium. The non-selected will be accepted as posters under the condition of approval of the scientific committee.
The 3 best oral communications will be awarded with prizes and so will be the 3 best posters.
The prizes will be given during the dinner on Thursday September 26.
Please consult the ISMRC 2013 website on a regular basis for updated information.
