Abstract Information

Introduction

The abstract submission guidelines of the ISEV2022 Congress are intended to provide clear instructions for submitting an abstract. You are kindly requested to carefully read the guidelines below before starting the submission process. ISEV and the ISEV2022 International Organizing Committee (IOC) maintain the right to reject any abstract that does not follow these guidelines.

Poster Presentation Instructions

  • Please be sure as a presenting author your are registered. You can register by going here. Please be sure to add your registration ID to the registration task by logging in, using the access information below.
  • Please note the presenting author is expected to attend ISEV2022 in Lyon, France. There will not be a virtual option for ISEV2022.
  • The panels for the poster will be 1 meter wide x 2.5 meters high, so your poster should not exceed 90cm wide x 1,10m high.
  • Please use a clear typeface.  The poster should be readable from a distance of 2-3 meters. The title banner of your poster should state the title of the presentation and the name(s) and affiliation(s) of the author(s).
  • You are responsible for printing your poster and bringing it to ISEV2022.
  • ISEV will provide poster numbers so it will be easy to find where you should hang your poster. Information on when you should hang your poster and removal will be sent as we get closer to the conference.
  • It is requested that you stand by your poster during the designated poster session and give your 2 minute 'poster pitch' to your session Chairs when they come to your poster. During the morning coffee breaks and lunch breaks, attendees will have the option to walk around and view the posters from that day. You are not required, but encouraged, to stand by your poster on your poster session day.
  • You may not hang your poster with pushpins; please bring tape, velcro and/or poster putty to hang your poster. You will be responsible for hanging your poster. Because of this, we recommend printing on a light paper or fabric so it is easy to hang.

General Abstract Instructions


1. Please consult the Minimal Information for Studies of EVs (MISEV2018), and ensure that your abstract is responsive to the guidelines on nomenclature, sample processing, separation, characterization, functional studies, and reporting. In particular, the Method section must include a full description of the techniques used to separate and characterize EVs. Provide the EV-TRACK ID of your study methods if available (EV-TRACK https://evtrack.org/)

2. The title of the abstract should not exceed 200 characters, and the main body of the abstract should not exceed 2,000 characters including spaces.

3. Capitalize only the first letter of the first word of the title (unless for abbreviations or proper nouns) and do not end the title with a period (“.”). For example: “This abstract is about CD63-positive EVs”

4. The abstract should include the sections Introduction, Methods, Results, Conclusions, and Funding (if applicable).

5. The abstract must contain primary scientific or clinical data that have not been published elsewhere and have not been presented previously at an ISEV annual meeting.

6. The submitter is responsible for ensuring that all authors have read the abstract and agreed to be co-authors, for submitting Name, Affiliation, City, Country, and contact information of each author, and for clearly indicating the presenting author.

7. Clearly indicate molecular findings with consensus names, not generic identifiers like “Protein X” and “miRNA-Y”. Abstracts without detailed findings may be rejected (if if there is a patent being drafted it is impossible to mention the name of the molecule, if it is the case, the authors might mention it).

8. Indicate if the research was performed or supported by a for-profit entity (e.g.; industry). Out of fairness to ISEV sponsors, abstracts submitted by industry representatives may undergo additional review to ensure purely scientific content and may or may not be accepted. If you are an industry representative, kindly consider supporting ISEV as a meeting sponsor for additional presentation opportunities.

9. Submitted abstracts on human subjects or experimental animals must comply with the Declaration of Helsinki.

10. In clinical studies, please state whether informed consent was obtained and whether the study was approved by a recognized national ethics committee.

11. If off-label use of drugs was involved in the study, please state this clearly. Indicate the funding agency of your work if applicable.

12. The abstract title and text may not contain trade names. ISEV reserves the right to replace trade names in accepted abstracts.

13. Do not partition results from the same study into multiple abstracts, and do not submit a copy or close copy of an abstract under more than one topic. ISEV reserves the right to reject abstracts when inappropriate partitioning of data is suspected.

14. Abstracts should be submitted in clear English to allow the reviewers to focus on the scientific content of the abstract. Authors are encouraged to have their abstract checked for grammar and spelling.

15. Choose the preferred presentation mode: oral or poster. All accepted poster abstracts will be offered a poster presentation; however, only a limited number of oral-preference abstracts can be programmed as orals. The remainder will be offered poster presentations. If you are not comfortable with presenting and responding to questions in English, you are encouraged  to choose poster preference.

Abstract Review, Selection, and Publication

An international panel of experts representing all subspecialties and based in a large number of countries will review all abstracts received on or before 7 January 2022. Each abstract will be reviewed by at least three reviewers, based on the above considerations including the MISEV2018 criteria where appropriate. The review will be “blinded”: that is, the reviewers will not have access to the names or institutions of the authors. The submitters and presenting authors will receive confirmation of acceptance for oral presentation, poster presentation, or a notice of rejection, by e-mail. No revisions can be made after the abstract deadline. There may be room for a limited number of late-breaking abstracts with a later deadline. Please consult the ISEV meeting website for details. The highest ranked abstracts will be selected for oral presentation. Authors of abstracts selected for oral presentation will be informed about the session and date of presentation, and presentation guidelines will be provided. Poster presenters will be informed about the date of the poster session and will receive guidelines for preparation and presentation. High-quality abstracts accepted for poster presentation and submitted by junior investigators (

Withdrawal Policy

If authors wish to withdraw the abstracts from presentation or publication, they are requested to send an e-mail to ISEV (contact@isev.org) before 01 April 2022. After 01 April 2022, abstracts will be prepared for publication in The Journal of Extracellular Vesicles. Withdrawn abstracts cannot be presented or published.

How to Submit your Abstract

Once you save your submission and all tasks have a “green checkmark” indicating completion, you can click “Save Submission.” On the next page, you can preview your abstract by clicking “click here for a preview of your abstract.” Once you have done that, go to the previous screen by clicking “previous” at the top left corner and on the next screen please click the “Submit” button the top right-hand corner of the screen. If you do not do this, your submission will not be complete and, therefore, it will not be considered. You will then receive confirmation of the submission by e-mail from contact@isev.org. If you do not receive it right away, be sure to check your Spam/Junk folder. Please note, you will be able to access and edit your submission as often as necessary prior to the submission deadline (7 January 2022 at 11:59pm EST). After this deadline, you will no longer be able to make any edits.

Language setting of your keyboard

The keyboard configuration of computers in some countries may cause problems with the printing of the abstracts when certain characters are used. To avoid these problems the language setting of your computer may need to be changed. To do this select "Start" then Settings", then "Control Panel" and then choosing "Keyboard." Once in this menu, set the language of your computer to English (United States) or US (International). Next, open your word processing software and set the font type to Arial. In the preparation of your abstract, if you require certain special characters that are not available, (e.g. '± ', '®', 'μ'), use the insert symbol feature (special characters). To do this, select Arial as the font, then select the required character, and copy and paste the symbol into the text of the abstract. If a special character is still not available, describe the character, e.g. 'alpha’.
