Call for Abstracts

Abstract submission for the 2019 Canadian Glycomics Symposium is now closed.

Selected talks will be scheduled for Thursday, May 16 and Friday, May 17 for a total of 20 minutes (including time for questions). Posters will be displayed on Thursday evening during the poster session. Each poster will be allocated a space of approximately 5 ft. wide x 3 ft. high.

All abstracts will be included in the published Book of Abstracts. Please ensure you adhere to the guidelines below, as failure to do so will result in your abstract being returned for revision. Authors will be notified of the outcome of the review process within 6 weeks of the submission deadline.

Trainee poster presenters are invited to present their work as a lightning talk during the Thursday symposium session. Presentations are limited to 3 minutes with no question period. Presenters should use this opportunity to entice the audience to visit their posters during the poster session later that evening. Six slots are available; see the submission form to apply. Deadline for submission is February 7th, 2019, 12 p.m. (MT).
