ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 13 SEPTEMBER 2019
We encourage researchers and organizations to submit their data in relation to translating diagnostic- and therapy advances of viral hepatitis into broad applications that accelerate progress toward elimination of viral hepatitis as a public health threat by 2030.
Abstracts should contain the following four components:
A concise statement of the issue under investigation or a hypothesis;
- Material & Methods
The experimental methods used (including the statistical analyses employed);
Specific findings (promises such as "to be completed" or "to be presented" are not acceptable);
A summary of findings that are supported by your results (statistical analyses used to support the conclusions, where appropriate, should be included; concluding statements such as "the results will be discussed" are not acceptable).
Please note that abstracts cannot be accepted if tables or graphs are included. The maximum word count for the abstract body is 500 words.
Abstracts are considered official communications to the conference and will be treated confidentially. Submitters of accepted abstracts agree to attend the meeting and present their abstract as scheduled.
The Abstract Submission portal is not yet open. Once the portal is open, please press the abstract submission button to your right.
Please follow the step-by-step directions to upload the abstract. To ensure your abstract retains any special characters or formatting, the abstract must be in Microsoft Word format.
