Abstract submission guidelines for the 2016 Symposium on Biomaterials Science

We will accept abstracts throughout the summer, but the deadline for early bird acceptance is September 30, 2016.  We strongly recommend that you submit your abstract by June 1 to increase your chance to be included as an oral presentation.  You will also benefit from a discounted registration fee. Early bird submissions will receive an acceptance notification by September 30th, 2016.  Submissions will be considered for oral presentations, for highlighted posters (that include an abbreviated oral presentation of 5 minutes), and for traditional poster presentations. When you submit your abstract, please indicate your preference. 

SUBMISSION INFORMATION

To submit your abstract, send it as a Microsoft WORD document attached to an email to symposium@dls.rutgers.edu

Abstracts describing high-quality research work on all aspects of biomaterials science will be accepted, but preference will be given to those abstracts that fit into one of featured sessions of the symposium.   

Featured Sessions:

Innovations in the design, synthesis and optimization of:
- Polymeric biomaterials
- Ceramic biomaterials
- Nanostructured biomaterials and nanomedicine

Cutting-edge research in:
- Stimulus-responsive biomaterials and their applications
- Fabrication, characterization, and property control of biomaterials
- Biomaterials for regenerative medicine including regeneration of soft and hard tissues, peripheral nerves, and skin

Additional topics include:

Clinical challenges in the use of biomaterials for regenerative medicine and drug delivery

Regulatory Challenges for new biomaterial compositions and combination devices

Biomanufacturing of cells and tissues with a focus on the design of biomaterials that can control cell fate and cell response and the computational modeling of biomaterials‐induced cellular responses

Abstract Requirements:

Title

The title should be brief, clearly indicating the nature of the presentation. When entering your title online, use mixed case (do not use all caps) and do not put a period at the end of the title.

Example: This is a Properly Formatted Abstract Title

Publication

Accepted abstracts will be published in the program booklet of the symposium, which will be made available to all symposium registrants.  Accepted abstracts will also be posted on the symposium webpage and remain publicly available for at least 1 year after the symposium.  Authors retain full copyright of their work, but grant a noncommercial, non-exclusive license to reproduce the accepted abstract on the symposium webpage and in the symposium booklet.  

Registration Requirements

Accepted authors are expected to pay their own travel expenses and conference registration fee(s).  For Registration Information, Click Here. 

Review Procedures

A program committee assembled by the New Jersey Center for Biomaterials will accept submitted abstracts that provide a substantial contribution to the field of biomaterials and follow the published abstract submission instructions for peer review.

Presenting Author Contact Responsibilities

Please indicate clearly who is the presenting author. The presenting author will serve as the primary contact on the abstract. The presenter must be one of the co-authors listed on the submitted abstract. The presenting author will be the main point of contact for information regarding the submission and is responsible for the following:

Failure to Present

The presenting author is expected to present the paper. If emergencies at the time of the meeting prohibit the participation of the designated author, any of the co-authors may be designated as the presenting author. Failure to present an accepted abstract at the scheduled times will not result in a refund of the registration fees.
