Submission Guidelines

Important Considerations Before You Submit an Abstract

  • Edit and proof your abstract before submitting. IS-MPMI will not edit abstract submissions; they will be published as submitted.
  • Abstracts are initially submitted to be considered for a POSTER presentation. Notifications regarding acceptance will be sent by March 15, 2019.
  • All submitted abstracts will then be reviewed to be considered for an oral presentation or a (New!) “flash talk” poster presentation. Notifications will be sent in April 2019 if the abstract is selected for an oral or flash talk.
  • The designated presenting author MUST be registered for the 2019 XVIII Congress by April 15, 2019. Failure to register will result in your abstract being withdrawn from the meeting.

Terms and Conditions

By submitting an abstract to IS-MPMI for the 2019 Congress, submitters agree to the following terms & conditions:
If the abstract is accepted, I agree that the designated presenting author will present the abstract at the 2019 IS-MPMI XVIII Congress, July 14-18, 2019 in Glasgow, Scotland, and will register and pay the registration fee by April 15, 2019. I understand that failure to complete the above terms will result in the cancellation of my abstract submission.
I confirm that this is an original work and that the abstract has not been previously published. I and any contributing authors, as sole proprietors of the abstract, agree to transfer copyright of the abstract to the IS-MPMI. Abstracts will be published in a supplement to MPMI Journal after the Congress takes place. By agreeing, I accept this copyright transfer.
I understand that failure to accept the copyright transfer will result in the immediate cancellation of my abstract submission.
