Abstract Submission

Presentation modes: Papers and posters

There will be both paper (e.g., Powerpoint) and poster presentations. We will also accept proposals for symposia/workshops, etc consisting of several paper presentations organized around some topic of interest. The paper presentations will be about 20 minutes with 5 minutes for questions. LCD (Powerpoint) projectors will be available in every room.  Projectors for overheads (transparencies) and flip charts (large paper pad easels) can be ordered in advance.

Poster area dimensions are 3 ft wide X 3.5 ft tall (0.9 m X 1.05 m). Posters will be up for a designated morning or afternoon. Within that time, each poster will be assigned to a designated 1 hour session during which authors are asked to be present at their poster.  Poster sessions 1 and 2 are scheduled from 4-6 PM on Wed., 7/26; a cash bar in the poster room will facilitate scientific exchange. Poster session 3 time will be announced later.

Correcting and archiving abstracts

Abstracts will be displayed on this website after approval.

PLEASE NOTE: Abstracts can be corrected/withdrawn by e-mail ( up to May 1.

Following the meeting, abstracts will be maintained on the israsociety website indefinitely. Because this is an archival record, authors will also be able to correct/withdraw an abstract on the website by e-mail up to 1 month after the meeting (Aug. 31, 2006). If an abstract is corrected on the website, a note will be added indicating that it is the abstract of record and is no longer identical to that printed in the program book.


If you got it, flaunt it. The sooner we receive abstracts, the sooner we can plan the scientific sessions.
