Abstract Submission Deadline: 1 May, 2022

Abstract Submission will be open from February 2022 through 1 May 2022. Delegates who would like to present their work as an Oral Presentation, Lightning Talk or Poster and iPoster presentation (which includes an embedded Lightning Talk), are invited to submit an abstract for consideration by the Scientific Committee.  All abstracts submitted will be reviewed and scored by multiple reviewers from the Cytokines 2022 Local Organizing Committee and International Scientific Advisory Committee as well as other experts in the field. Abstracts submitted for the joint meeting, ILC4, will be reviewed by the ILC4 Organizing Committee and ILC International Advisory Committee.

Abstract presenters can participate in the meeting virtually or in person as this will be a Hybrid Meeting and will include both live participation and access as well as an integrated Cytokines 2022/ILC4 Virtual Meeting Platform. However, the 5 minute Lightning Talks will only be presented by in-person attendees, although they will also be live-streamed to the virtual participants.

In-person Poster Sessions will be using the traditional boards and each presenter will be assigned a poster in their session for the full 90 minutes. The in-person poster presenters will also be required to submit their poster through the iPoster platform so they are accessible to our virtual participants (which can either be a pdf or using the iPoster templates). Our interactive iPoster platform will make it easy for authors to create presentations that bring their research to life – whether presented virtually online or live onsite in Hawaii, including:

  • Unlimited text and multimedia content.
  • Upload high resolution images, high definition videos, and GIF’s.
  • Audio tools for adding oral presentations and other sound files.
  • Add simulations, visualizations, and sonifications.
  • Include links to external websites for viewing original source materials and other contextual content and other dynamic content. 

Submission Guidelines will be coming soon. ICIS offers Student/Postdoc Member Abstract Awards and Travel Awards sponsored by generous donations for the top ranked 50-60 abstract submissions. ILC4 will also offer Trainee Travel Awards based on funding. ILC4 abstract submitters who are ICIS student/postdoc members are also eligible for ICIS student/postdoc travel and abstract awards. For more information about ICIS membership, please click here.

Abstracts will be accepted as Oral Presentations in specific Symposium Sessions, Podium Lightning Talks or iPosters (which include embedded Lightning Talks). The iPoster sessions will include large touchscreens and the ipostersessions.com platform makes it easy to create interactive poster presentations that attract, engage & inform. Authors can present as much content as they need. Visitors can explore the content as deeply as they wish. Display high-resolution images, videos & animations, voice-over narrations and lightning talks.
