Submit an Abstract


Vascular Biology

October 14-18, 2018
Gurney's Newport Resort and Marina, Newport, RI


Biology of Signaling in the Cardiovascular System Workshop V


Vascular Inflammation Workshop II

Late-breaking abstracts will be accepted from August 17 through September 10

The site is currently closed, it will reopen for late-breaking abstracts on August 17 at 7:00am EDT

Late breaking abstracts will be accepted for posters only and are not eligible for Travel Awards.

If you are a postdoctoral fellow, graduate student or equivalent, you can still be eligible for a Poster Award.

When submitting your abstract, select only one of these three broad topics:
Biology of Signaling in the Cardiovascular System
Vascular Inflammation
Vascular Biology

Please follow the application rules included in the abstract submission guidelines.

You may submit more than one abstract, however, the same abstract may not be submitted to both workshops.

The organizers will attempt to program all submitted abstracts. NAVBO reserves the right to reject any
abstract. Authors should indicate their preference for either poster or oral presentation, however, due to the limited number of slots within oral sessions, most abstracts will be programmed for poster presentation.

  • Use Arial font, 10 point
  • Abstract titles are limited to 200 characters (including spaces)
  • Abstracts are limited to 1,750 characters (including spaces)
  • DO NOT include the title, authors or author affiliations in the body of the abstract
  • Enter each co-author into the database, be consistent with affiliations and include co-authors' emails, cities, states and countries
  • Additional instructions available here.

For Junior Faculty

If you are within five years of your first independent investigator position and are submitting an abstract to Vascular Biology, consider applying for the Springer Junior Investigator Award.  See here for details and criteria.
