  • Guidelines for Abstracts


    Abstracts are accepted exclusively through this website, either during registration or, after registration, through your personal myIMYA page (you will need to register to have access to the latter).

    The abstract submission deadline is 17 February 2017. The organisers will then review the received abstracts for oral or poster presentations. All submitted abstracts will be discarded if payment is not received by 31 March 2017.

    Only registered participants can submit an abstract and each registered participant may submit a maximum of one abstract. Abstracts should be submitted by the presenting author only.


    • The title must start in uppercase and continue in lowercase, except for conventional terms (ATP, DNA, NFκB, etc). Example:
         This title is written correctly
         This Title is Not Properly Written
    • If more than one author, underline your name (the presenting author, in whatever position you appear in the author list) and use commas to separate the names; do not use 'and' before the last author. The presenting author's first name(s) and surname should be written in full; for all other authors, write first name(s) as initials and surname in full. If more than one affiliation, use sequential superscript numbers to identify each institution. Example:
         Mario Rossi1, J. Doe2, F. Bloggs1,2
         1Dept Biomembranes, Golgi & Veratti Univ., Pavia, Italy
         2Dept Bioblast Analyses, Altmann Univ., Leipzig, Germany

  • Trani

    Excursion and gala dinner

    On Wednesday afternoon (17 May), a guided tour followed by dinner will take place.

    At 15:00, participants will meet the guides outside the conference venue (Chamber of Commerce) and leave by bus towards Trani to visit the old town and the cathedral.

    Afterwards, the group will be taken to the UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site Castel del Monte, to visit the octagonal shaped Castle built by the Swabian Emperor Frederick II.

    The group will then head towards a local “Masseria” (a kind of typical farm) to enjoy nature, local products, and the landscape. A traditional dinner will be served, allowing the group to explore Apulian cuisine in its many flavours and colours.

    The group will be taken back to Bari by bus after dinner.
