Abstract Submission

Submit an Abstract

The 2020 Annual Meeting abstracts will be published in a special electronic issue of the Society’s journal, Environmental and Molecular Mutagenesis.

Regular EMGS Abstract submission deadline is May 31, 2020. (To be published in EMM)

Late Breaking Abstracts are due by August 29, 2020. (Acceptance based on availability but not published in EMM)
Invited speaker abstract deadline is May 15, 2020.

You are encouraged to participate in the meeting by presenting your research as a Poster or Platform talk. Short talks will be selected from abstract submission files for presentation in one of the Platform sessions.

Submission is quick and easy. Login or create an ID and password and then follow the directions and screen prompts.

Abstract submissions should follow the general guidelines and format for EMGS abstracts as described here. Although the inclusion of data in the abstract is not a requirement, abstracts for Travel Award submissions should not simply be a description of experiments that are planned or contemplated. It is not appropriate to state that “results will be presented at the meeting.”

Either the abstract presenter must be a member of EMGS or they must have an EMGS member sponsor. No member can be an author or sponsor of more than four abstracts. Please contact EMGS Headquarters if you do not have a member sponsor for your abstract.

Poster Presentation Guidelines

  1. It takes considerable effort and attention to detail to prepare an effective poster presentation. We ask that you take the time to make yours interesting and informative.
  2. Your poster must fit within a space four feet by four feet.
  3. Posters should use font sizes large enough to be read from a distance of one meter.
  4. Each poster should be organized as follows:
    a. A top label indicating the title of the paper (should be the same as the abstract title) with names of the authors and their affiliations.
    b. A summary should be located on the lower right portion and contain no more than five items.
  5. Charts should be simple with bold lines.

The poster boards will be horizontal with dimensions of eight feet wide by four feet tall. Each poster board will have two posters. Your presentation must not be larger than four feet by four feet. Push pins will be provided on-site to attach your poster to the board.

Poster Board Size: 8 feet (244 cm) wide by 4 feet (122 m) tall.
Presentation Size: 45 inches (114 cm) wide by 47 inches (119 cm) tall .

Platform Presentations

There will be two or three sessions running concurrently so it is important that you strictly adhere to the times outlined in the program. The Program Committee has allotted 12 minutes for each presentation, 2 minutes for questions, and 1 minute to switch between speakers (total, 15 minutes).
