Call for Abstracts

41st Symposium on Biotechnology for Fuels and Chemicals

Abstracts for invited talks, posters, contributed oral presentations and student oral session presentations are now being accepted.

INVITED TALKS. Submit to this area if you have been specifically invited to present in one of the oral sessions.

POSTER PRESENTATIONS Poster spaces are limited. Please do not submit an abstract unless you are committed to attending the meeting and presenting. To be assured of a poster space after receiving an acceptance, each poster must have the presenting author registered and paid by the advanced registration deadline date which will be posted on the conference website. Substitutions for the presenting author must be identified by contacting SIMB directly. In the case of a substitution, the new presenter must also be registered and paid by required date.

All posters accepted and displayed must have at least one author available to discuss the poster. This author may present only two posters within a single poster session, and present no more than a total of three posters in both poster sessions, i.e., a single author may present a maximum of two (2) posters in one poster session and one (1) poster in the other poster session.

IMPORTANT: You will be notified by email of acceptance of your poster abstract. All accepted poster presenters must be registered and paid in full before abstracts will be published. If you have not registered and paid by the date specified, your poster will be withdrawn from the program/website and space will not be reserved for you in the poster hall.

Please do not bring a poster to the meeting if you have not been accepted or if you have not registered and paid by the required registration date.
