Call for Abstracts

This year the abstracts will be divided into two categories:

  • Research: original research that showcases flow cytometry, mass cytometry, and/or imaging
  • Core management:  topics relevant to core facilities. Suggested topics include development of standard practices, user training, core facility administration, or a case study of troubleshooting a challenging project. 

The GLIIFCA abstract committee will choose the top three submitted abstracts within each category to present eight-minute flash talks at the conference. These top six abstracts will also receive travel awards. Abstracts that are not selected for flash talks will be able to submit short video presentations that can be accessed by registered attendees through the GLIIFCA website and at the conference.

We hope you will consider presenting your work to our regional audience!

Important dates:

  • Abstract submission – The flash talk recipients have been notified as of August 8, 2022. If you wish to submit an abstract prior to August 31, 2022 you will be able to participate in the digital poster session.
  • August 31, 2022: Video submissions due for those not giving a flash talk

Frequently Asked Questions

Once abstract submission is closed on August 1, a committee of GLIIFCA organizers will review them and select the top three in each category. The authors of these abstracts will notified by August 7 and present an 8-minute flash talk at the conference. Those who are not selected for flash talks will be able to submit a short (up to 5 minutes) video that will be available to all registered attendees.

The top three abstracts in each category who are selected for flash talks will be given free registration to the conference and a travel award. After the flash talks are presented at the conference, the committee of conference organizers will also award a “best abstract” from each category.

You are welcome to submit an abstract but you will not be eligible for any of the awards – just a video submission to the digital poster session. Additionally, if you submit an abstract for a tech talk and are not selected, you will automatically be given the opportunity to submit a video to the digital poster session (there is no need to submit twice).
