Abstract Submission

Deadline for abstract submission has now passed

Thank you to everyone who submitted an abstract for the 33rd International Symposium on ALS/MND.

Abstract decisions

All submitted abstracts have now been reviewed by the Symposium Programme Committee and decisions have been sent out to corresponding authors.

  • If you have been awarded an ePoster presentation, prepare to submit your poster material (PDF and lightning explainer video URL). We will send presenting/corresponding authors more information on how to create and upload their poster material before the poster submission portal opens on 13 September 2022.
  • We will also send the allocated Live Poster Session and poster reference (different to the submission number that was assigned to your abstract during the submission process) to the presenting/corresponding author.
  • Please ensure you have leave yourself enough time to create your poster material in order to submit your poster before the deadline of 13 October 2022. See summary of key dates below.
  • If you have been awarded one of the very limited oral presentation slots, we aim to provide you with details on your next steps in the coming weeks.
