Oral & Poster Abstracts

9.5 Call for Abstracts




Do you have a project that has been recently completed? Or an antibody that required a creative approach to identify? What about the data that is due next week for the Medical Director?

YOU have the beginnings of an Abstract!

Abstracts may be from any discipline relating to hospitals, donor centers, cellular therapy, tissue therapy or testing laboratories. Abstracts should be presented for presentation in one of the following formats:

Oral: A 10-minute oral presentation by an author plus 5 minutes for Q&A.

Poster: A visual display, not to exceed 4’ x 5’ and not less than 8 ½” x 11”.

All accepted Oral Abstract presenters will present during a LIVE Webinar in July 2020.  In addition, their Abstract will be included in the 2020 SCABB Abstract Journal and they will have the opportunity to display a Poster of their Abstract, onsite a the 2020 SCABB Annual Meeting in Orlando, August 27-29.  Accepted Posted Abstracts will also be included in the 2020 SCABB Abstract Journal and will be displayed in Orlando during the Annual Meeting in August.  Having an abstract accepted at the Annual Meeting is not only an honor but can serve as a nice entry into a CV. There is no limit to the number of abstracts an individual may submit and it is a great experience to present in oral or poster presentation.  Abstracts are welcome from SCABB Members and non-members. 

The abstracts must be submitted in electronic form, reflecting original investigation, in the specified format as designated by Objective, Methods, Results, and Conclusion. See abstract guidelines. All abstracts are peer reviewed by a panel of committee members to judge the scientific merit of each submission. There is no guarantee of acceptance but there is a reasonably high acceptance rate of appropriately structured submissions, if entered prior to the deadline.
