The presenting authors will be notified of acceptance by email (please make sure to state your correct email address).
If you do not receive a confirmation by email within the established deadlines, please contact the BIO2018 secretariat.
Abstract Submission Instructions
How to submit an abstract
- Please register to enter Abstract Submission site.
- Abstract content and editing are the responsibilities of the submitting author. Abstracts will be published as received. Please review your abstract keeping in mind the early (20th May) or late submission (29th June) deadlines noted on the meeting webpage.
- One abstract per submitting author per meeting. Submitting author and account name must match.

Detailed Submission Guidelines
To submit your abstract please use Abstracts menu item on Abstract Submission site . Abstract submission form is available only for registered and logged users. You need to fill in the following fields:
- Abstract title (please do not capitalize whole titles)
- List of abstract authors, please use the example over the input field to format the list
- List of authors affiliations, please follow the example to format the list
- Corresponding author’s e-mail, will be filled with your e-mail automatically during the registration

- The process is finished with the “Submit” button. Pressing this button saves the abstract in the database.
Four of the fields, namely the abstract title, the list of authors, the list of affiliations and the abstract text are equipped with WYSIWYG (“What You See Is What You Get”) editor capabilities, allowing you to format the text. If you need special characters (eg. Greek or symbols) you can use “insert character” button (Ω). The WYSIWYG editor lets the authors copy the content from editors like Microsoft Word and to preserve formatting. For technical reasons, tables should be placed at the end of the abstract text. Some features of the text may however be lost, especially the hard paragraph breaks, when copied from MS Word. Abstract text has to be checked with the “Abstract Preview” command. Please note that the final formatting will follow the standards of Acta Biochimica Polonica layout rules. See our web site: www.actabp.pl for details.
Signs < (less) and > (more) are also special characters and schould be inserted from the special chcracters table. Those characters are HTML code characters and if improperly inserted, unexpected might be how they appear in the resulting text.
Please note, that abstracts are editable till the abstract submission deadline. Typing the new one in the place of the old one means deleting the previous text.
Abstract submission deadline is May 20th 2018 for oral presentation candidates and June 29th 2018 for posters and invited lectures.

Oral presentation selected by the Scientific Committee should be planned for 10 min talk that will be followed by 5 min discussion. Presentation time will be strictly enforced.
Guidelines for poster presentation
The posters have to be printed for display on a poster board (size to be announced later).
Posters should be on display throughout the Congress i.e.
Group of Poster Session 1: from 09.00 hours to 18.00 hours on Wednesday 19th September.
Poster Session 1: 13:15-14:30
Session Nos 1-10:
Group of Poster Session 2: from 09.00 hours to 18.00 hours on Thursday 20th September.
Poster Session 2: 13:15-14:15
Session Nos 11-20:
Group of Poster Session 3: from 09.00 hours to 15.00 hours on Friday 21st September.
Poster Session 3: 13:15-14:00
Session Nos 21-30 and the late abstracts
All posters will be numbered, listed and grouped in accordance with the Congress topics. Authors must be available to present and discuss their poster during the session.
The poster area opens for poster presenters on Wednesday 19th September at 08:00. Assistants will be available on site to provide you with the material needed to attach your poster to its stand. Please take notice of your Abstract number and poster board before hanging up your poster.
Posters should be constructed in the format which will be announced later. To enable delegates to easily read the information the lettering should be a minimum of 1 cm high.
Please select the session under which you wish to submit your abstract for review by the Scientific Committee.
The reviewers may decide that the abstract content, while otherwise acceptable, does not fit the interest area of the topic to which it was submitted. In this case, the abstract is forwarded to the Review Committee of the topic more closely aligned to the perceived content.
