The deadline for the MCC poster abstract submission is March 27th 2015 at 5pm EST. You can submit your abstract by clicking on the following link:
Guidelines for submitting your abstract can be found here (http://www.macularcarotenoids.org/abstract_submission/guidelines_for_abstract_submission), along with guidelines as to what to do once your abstract has been accepted (http://www.macularcarotenoids.org/abstract_submission/what_to_do_once_your_abstract_is_accepted)
Abstracts will be reviewed for suitability by members of the conference organising committee, and revisions will be requested if the peer-review committee identify edits (e.g. clarity, presentation) needed to improve the abstract.
The conference committee will then decide which abstracts will be selected for poster presentation or for oral presentation at the conference.
Posters will be displayed during the three day conference, and we will have two dedicated “Poster Sessions” at the 2015 event where scientists will be given the opportunity to present their work beside their poster.
Also, we have a dedicated “Investigator Session” for scientists who are selected to present their work as a presentation in the Howard Theatre.
There will be a prize for best poster and best oral presentation, which will be announced at the conference gala dinner on the Thursday night. Also, there will be runner up prizes.
We look forward to receiving your abstracts.
Please also take this notice as a reminder to register for the event. Finally, please remember to arrange your accommodation and travel to Cambridge if attending the conference. Accommodation availability at Downing College is now limited. Registration and Accommodation will be offered on a first come first served basis.
