Guidelines for Abstracts

Registrations and abstracts are accepted exclusively through this website.
N.B. Contrary to previous editions of this meeting, abstracts cannot be processed via e-mail.

Late breaking abstracts will not be considered for oral presentations or travel awards.

Submission deadline to be considered for oral presentation is June 14, 2010. The Scientific Committee will then review the received abstracts for inclusion in the scientific program in one of the following formats:

  • Oral Abstract Sessions
    Selected abstracts will be presented during specific symposia as deemed appropriate by the organizing committee.
  • Poster Abstract Session
    Posters will be displayed throughout the meeting, with ample opportunity for presentation and discussion.

The organizing committee will communicate to the authors via e-mail by July 5, 2010 whether their abstract will be an oral or poster presentation.

Abstracts will be published in the Journal Cardiovascular Drugs and Therapy.

Early Investigator Commendation

The Early Investigator Commendation (EIC) highlights the scientific accomplishments of promising young researchers and is a major focus of the Annual Congress of the Society for Heart and Vascular Metabolism. There will be four finalists, and each will receive free lodging and full registration. The finalists will present their work in a special section of the plenary sessions.

Entrants for the EIC competition should be either students or postdoctoral fellows, irrespective of their age.

Admission to the EIC competition is by submission of an abstract and a curriculum vitae by the abstract deadline. In the event that an entrant is not selected as an EIC finalist, the abstract will still be considered for presentation as a regular communication at the meeting and for publication as part of the meeting proceedings.

A more detailed document regarding the EIC can be obtained through this link.

The EIC application deadline is June 14, 2010, and notification of commendations will be given by July 5, 2010.



English is the official language for the meeting.
