Abstract Topics

Play an active part in the scientific programme by presenting your work at the 48th FEBS Congress! Read the Call for Abstracts here.

Submissions of abstracts for oral and poster presentations across the spectrum of the molecular life sciences are welcome. 

Abstracts submitted by the March 8, 2024 deadline can be considered for talks integrated into the symposia, as well as speed talks and poster presentations. Accepted abstracts will be displayed on the Congress website and app, and collated in an online supplement of FEBS Open Bio.

During abstract submission, please select one topic from the categories below that best describes the content of your abstract: topics will be used for reviewing and indexing purposes, and assignment of oral presentations and poster display at the event.
