Abstract and Title submissions

Travel Grant, Abstract and Title submissions are now closed

All submitted titles and abstracts will be accepted and will be presented in different formats, upon Scientific Committee decision, allowing peer review, discussions and knowledge exchange.

PRESENTATIONS formats

Oral sessions are featuring titles/abstracts selected for their outstanding quality, presented orally in the lecture room and chaired by an expert in the field.

Poster sessions stay on display for the length of the meeting and will be presented by the researchers.

Selected oral and poster presenters are informed by e-mail directly. Abstracts and titles submitted prior to the deadlines will be ensured to be published in the final programme of the Meeting. Only authors mentioned in your submission will be cited in the programme.

Instructions

Instructions for poster presentation:

Assignments of poster locations will be made in advance. Each display area will be numbered and a numbered list of poster titles with presenters' names will be available and posted in the poster session room. All posters should be arranged in the poster session room at least 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the session. Each poster must have at least one presenter and the presenter(s) must remain with their poster throughout the poster session to answer questions.

Guidelines for Poster Layout:

A0 (portrait orientation) as poster boards are 7 x 3 ft

Rules for Travel Grants (now closed)

Applicants for the travel grant must be Ph-D students or Post-Doc. If you were a recipient of the Working Group travel grant in 2015 you can not apply this year. Also travel grants and poster awards financial prizes cannot be cumulated. Travel grantees will be refunded upon expense claim up to 450 Euros (travel + local accommodation only) and in case they are awarded for poster presentation, they will only receive the award certificate without any financial prize.

Application

To apply for the travel grant, please send an abstract and a motivation letter through the submission button below. You will have to upload your abstract in a word format (2500 characters max).

Now closed!

Grants will be awarded by the organising scientific committee and the nucleus members of the Working Group on Cardiac Cellular Electrophysiology.
