ISCLB at a glance: key dates for the 2019 symposium

Published on: 27th September 2018 @ 5:44 PM

Planning for ISCLB 2019 is now well underway and we are delighted to be able to share the key dates with our attendees.

Conference organising takes a lot of time, both on the part of the organising committees but also on the part of those attending: abstracts need to be submitted, travel must to be arranged, accommodation booked and bags packed. In an effort to make thes processes as stramlined as possible for all our attendees, we wanted to share shome details of key dates in the ISCLB calendar.

The Symposium itself will run from 22 May 2019 to 24 May 2019 on the UCD Belfield Campus in south Dublin, Ireland. In order that we will have everyones details correct and name badges printed, online registration will close on 17 May 2019. This will be the last day to complete your registration but, to avail of our early bird registration price, you should consider completing everything before 08 March 2019.

As regular conference attendees will know, the process of submitting and reviewing an abstract can take a while. In order that all our attendees can plan their visit well in advance (especially those travelling from afar and those who may need to apply for visas) we hare arranged the abstract submission, review and notification process to ensure adequate time to complete all the tasks required.

Abstract submissions (via the online portal) can be made from now. The abstract submission portal will close on 8 March 2019. A review of all submitted abstracts will be completed by 22 March 2018, and authors will be notified then of the outcome of the process. This leave plenty of time between finding out if your abstract was accepted and the closing of the early bird registration offer!

Much of the planning has been done with our attendees in mind. We want the process to be as clear and transparent as possible, while simultaneously being straightforward for our attendees and our organing committees. 

We look very much forward to welcoming you all to Dublin in May 2019! If, before then, you need any help or assistance, please do contact us!
