The Abstract Submission deadline is June 1, 2018 (11:59 PM CDT).
When submitting your abstract, you may indicate your presentation preference: talk or poster. If your abstract is not selected for a talk, you will be assigned a poster.
Proofread your abstract carefully; online revisions are not possible after submission.
Character limit for the body of the abstract: 2500 characters including spaces. The title, author list, and affiliations, are not included toward this character count.
Abstract withdrawal requests can only be made by emailing the organizers at IPM2018@morgridge.org by June15, 2018.
Late abstracts are subject to space availability and can be submitted after the submission deadline by emailing the organizers at IPM2018@morgridge.org.
Full abstracts will not be published online and will only be made available to meeting participants.
All talks will be selected from submitted abstracts. Preference will be given to students, postdocs, research scientists, and junior faculty.
Talks will be 15 or 25 minutes long followed by 5 minutes for questions and discussion.
Talks will be organized into sessions based on the following topics:
Regeneration and stem cell regulation
The central nervous system
Regeneration and organogenesis
Patterning and polarity
Planarians to model human disease
Germ cells and reproductive biology
Resources and tools
There will be three 2-hour poster sessions during the meeting.
Poster presenters will be assigned odd- or even-numbered posters and will be required to present their posters during the first or second poster session, respectively. Poster session 3 is an “open” session during which all presenters may present their poster if they wish.
To maximize opportunities for poster viewing and scientific discourse, all posters will be displayed for the entirety of the meeting.
Poster dimensions may vary but should not exceed 46 inches x 46 inches (116 cm x 116 cm). Supplies for hanging posters will be available at the meeting.
