EMBL Courses and Conferences during the Coronavirus pandemic
With the onsite programme paused, many of our events are now being offered in virtual formats.
Registration is open as usual for many events, with back-up plans in place to move further courses and conferences online as necessary. Registration fees for any events affected by the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.
More information for participants of events at EMBL Heidelberg can be found here.
Only registered participants are eligible to submit an abstract. Abstract submission deadline is 1 July 2019, 6.00 pm (CET)
We only accept online abstract submissions. After you have logged in and successfully registered, you will receive an email asking you to submit your abstract. Click on the link provided and enter your abstract in the text box provided. Alternatively you can submit your abstract by clicking on the link on the confirmation page directly after registering.
When submitting your abstract you can also apply for an oral or poster presentation. A selection process will take place with the results announced 2-3 weeks after the abstract submission deadline.
BROWSERS: Our system only supports Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox
ABSTRACT LENGTH: The maximum limit of 2000 characters (ca. 200 words) refers to manually typed text (spaces included).
CO-AUTHORS: Please enter your co-authors correctly via the system by adding accounts with their institution and DO NOT copy-paste them into the body of the abstract text, as they will not be indexed in the abstract book.
TEXT ONLY: Please note that the abstract book will show a text-only version of your abstract, so all style commands will be stripped once submitted. If you copy-paste the text, hidden formatting might still be included and you will be informed that your text exceeds the limit of 2000 characters. We recommend either:
- saving your text as text only in your editor or Email programme, OR
- copy-pasting it into Notepad and then onto the website.
Some web browsers do not accept abstracts close to the 2,000 character count.
SYMBOLS: If you have special symbols in your text make sure you are using Unicode characters, otherwise these will not be recognised by the tool.
For more details about abstract submission, oral presentations and poster sessions please refer to the FAQ page.
Please be aware that a pdf file containing all abstracts may be sent out to all delegates approximately one week prior to the meeting.
