2013 Algae Biomass Summit Solicitation for Abstracts

The Algae Biomass Organization is now accepting abstracts for speaking and poster opportunities for the 2013 Algae Biomass Summit, to be held at the Hilton Orlando in Orlando, Florida, September 30th to October 3rd.

The large number of abstracts submitted last year was unprecedented and we anticipate an even higher number of submissions this year. All abstracts submitted by the first priority deadline of April 3, 2013 will be reviewed by an expert review committee at that time and, if accepted, placed in the appropriate oral or poster sections. Abstracts submitted after this date will be reviewed as received and included in either the oral or poster sessions as applicable. ABO very much encourages all to meet the April 3rd deadline in order to be considered for acceptance. An announcement of acceptance will be sent on or around June 1, 2013 for those meeting the first priority deadline. Please follow the guidelines to the abstract submission page.
