Abstract Guidelines

Authors: Please provide all required information for the presenting author including a valid email address. A presenter must be identified in order for abstracts to be considered.  Please enter all additional authors in the order they should appear in the program. The abstract submission form will guide you through the process of entering the author(s) information. Do not include the author information in the body of the abstract.  At least one author listed must be either a member of ISSX.

Abstract Title and Topic: For each submission, author must select an Abstract Topic (e.g. primary keyword), provide complete presenter contact information, and include the abstract text. Please type the abstract title using ALL UPPERCASE LETTERS. Submissions must have a title to be considered for the conference program. All abstracts must be in English - the official language of the 11th International ISSX Meeting.

Abstract Body: The abstract text should be typed single-spaced and may not exceed 500 words (350 to 400 words is preferred). Type the text as one paragraph. All references included in the text should be numbered and accompanied by the full citation, including author’s names, title, journal name, volume, number, inclusive paging, and year of publication.

Abstract Content: Abstracts must describe previously unpublished work. Abstracts previously published for other domestic or international meetings cannot be accepted. If the abstract is about metabolism/disposition/mode of action of the compound, then the chemical name or a partial structure must be included. If the compound causes a well-characterized biological response that is independent of structure (for example, compounds are a general inhibitor of some process, like apoptosis or chaperon function and structure is unrelated to the central theme), it is acceptable to include it with only the generic name. Abstracts should include a statement of hypothesis, methods used, supporting data, results and conclusions. Abstracts found to be lacking in sufficient clarity, relation to the meeting topic areas, or scientific content may be rejected. Preparation of the abstract should be rigorous and the abstract checked for errors and accuracy before submission. Errors in the submitted abstract cannot be corrected once the abstract is accepted. Errors can be corrected in the poster, so the whole set of data and information presented is accurate.
