Downtown Indianapolis

Due Date: March 1, 2016

Junior faculty and fellows will be able to submit abstracts for review. Abstracts are limited to 250 words and will be in a structured format (i.e., Background, Objectives/Aims, Methods, Results, Conclusions). Abstracts will be submitted for consideration by email to kcoppedg@iu.edu. The symposium advisory committee will review abstracts and a recommendation will be made as to whether or not to accept the abstract as a poster or to elect to have the information presented as a junior investigator presentation. Review criteria will include originality and importance of the idea, appropriateness of the methods, and interpretation of results. We will also limit presentations from any one institution to maximize the number of programs represented. Individuals will be informed of the advisory committee’s decision at least two months prior to the meeting date.
