ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE JANUARY 13, 2023

Topics:

  • Brain-body communication in regulating appetite and consummatory behavior

  • Brain-body interaction in regulating energy balance/thermoregulation

  • The gut-brain axis and neuro-immune interactions in metabolic disease

  • New technologies and models for studying brain-body communication and treatments of disease

  • The influence of genes and lifestyle on energy homeostasis, metabolism, and mental health

Abstracts received before the abstract deadline will be considered for poster presentations and/or a limited number of oral presentations. If your abstract is accepted, it will be included in our online abstract booklet that will be distributed to all conference participants.

Any abstracts submitted after the deadline will be eligible for poster presentations only. Please also note that we can only allow one abstract per presenting author. Abstracts will not be published and authors also reserve the right to publish their work elsewhere.

All abstracts will be reviewed by the organizers to ensure that the topic of the submission is consistent with the scope of the topics covered at the symposium. A small number of abstracts will be selected for short talks by the organizing committee.

Once the abstract is accepted, at least one of the authors must register for and present at the conference.
A condition of submission is that, if accepted, the poster and/or talk will be presented at the conference by one of the authors.

Successfully submitted abstracts will be acknowledged with an electronic receipt including an abstract reference number, which should be quoted in all correspondence.

If you have more than one paper accepted for presentation at the conference (oral or poster), there is an additional registration fee of $50.00 per additional paper. Please select the additional item during the registration process and indicate all your abstract reference numbers when prompted.  Please note this is for papers that you are the presenting author of, not papers that you are co-author of.

Family support award

Elsevier has provided funds to help supplement the costs related to childcare responsibilities for early-career researchers attending our 2023 Cell Symposia. We understand that, in both academia and industry, the years following the completion of a doctoral degree are critical for exposure, recognition, and networking to secure or maintain a position. For many scientists, these years also coincide with starting a family, making it difficult to achieve a work-life balance and embrace one’s career objectives. Up to $500 per award will be granted to students, postdocs, and/or young investigators (within your first 5 years). Delegates with accepted abstracts are eligible for this award (awarded on a first come first serve basis). To request and application form, please email k.russell@elsevier.com.

Deadline for award applications January 13, 2023.
