Abstracts can be submitted exclusively through your personal myIHSS2024 area; you will need to sign up for an account to have access to this area. Participants can submit one or more abstracts. Abstracts can be submitted only by the presenting author.

The abstract submission deadline is 10 May 2024. The organisers will then review the received abstracts for oral or poster presentations.

Abstracts guidelines:

  • Title. The title must start in uppercase and continue in lowercase, except for conventional terms (ATP, DNA, NFκB, etc). Example:
        This title is written correctly
         This Title is Not Properly Written
  • Authors. If more than one author (but only in that case), underline your name (the presenting author, in whatever position you appear in the author list) and use commas to separate the author names; do not use 'and' before the last author. Write your name and surname in full; for any other authors use initial(s) for the first name(s) followed by the surname. If more than one affiliation (but only in that case), use sequential superscript numbers to identify each institution. Example:
       Mario Rossi1, J. Doe2, F. Bloggs1,2
       1Dept Biomembranes, Golgi & Veratti Univ., Pavia, Italy
       2Dept Bioblast Analyses, Altmann Univ., Leipzig, Germany
  • Abstract text. Keep the abstract text to within 2500 characters, spaces included (which is roughly equivalent to 300 words).


Poster boards are in portrait format. When preparing your poster, please remember that its maximum size is 100 x 150 cm (width x height). Thus, suggested sizes are 70 x 100 cm (B1) or 84 x 120 cm (A0).

Correct format... poster should be PORTRAIT  poster should NOT be LANDSCAPE Wrong format...

Please print your poster on paper and avoid different materials (e.g., tissue). Double-sided adhesive tape will be available in the poster area.
