Important information on abstracts

Authors are restricted to presenting only one poster during the meeting. If you have submitted two abstracts and both have been selected for poster presentation, the organization will contact you soon and ask the submitter to remove one poster from the program.

You do not need to register for the conference in order to submit the abstract. If you are selected for a presentation, you are required to register to attend the conference. Having your abstract accepted does not automatically mean you are registered. 

An abstract has been selected for Oral, Short or Poster Presentation. At the review stage, the Organizing Committee has the right to change the presentation type submitted by the author to ensure the continuity of the conference program i.e. oral presentation may be changed to poster presentation OR poster presentation to short presentation. The submitter has been informed of their presentation type at the acceptance notification stage. The Organizing Committee can also deem an abstract more suitable for another session than the session/topic selected by the submitter. This will also be made known to the submitter at the notification stage. 
Short Presentations are new to ISME and will replace the Poster Pitch introduced at ISME17. A Short Presentation means a presenter has five minutes and five slides to present their research. Presenters will not receive a Poster Presentation as well. 

Oral, Short and Poster Presentation specifications will shared after the notification stage. At that point, presenters will also be informed on the time and date of their presentation.
