  • Submit all abstracts in English.
  • Receipt of your submitted abstract will be acknowledged by email.
  • Proofread abstracts carefully to avoid errors before they are submitted. IHMC Congress 2016 is not authorized to make changes to a submission.
  • Submission of an abstract constitutes a commitment by the author(s) to display a poster if accepted and/or give an oral presentation if invited.
  • By submitting this abstract, the authors grant permission to IHMC Congress 2016 to publish the accepted abstract in the printed and/or online version of the conference program.

Abstract Acceptance/Non-Acceptance Process

Abstract grading is blinded, and abstracts are selected on the basis of scientific merit.

The submitting authors will be notified of acceptance/non-acceptance status via email, by August 19, 2016.  IHMC Congress 2016 suggests that you register and make travel plans early. The conference will waive any registration penalties if you need to cancel should your abstract not be accepted.
