Abstract Submission

All topics in the field of Biological Inorganic (Bioinorganic) Chemistry are welcome at the conference including the broader emerging areas where it is interfacing with Nanoscience, Synthetic Biology and Supramolecular Chemistry.  To assist in grouping similar abstracts we request presenters select the most suitable of the 7 topics.  These topics should be interpreted broadly. 

A small number of oral presentation slots are available and Early Career Researchers (PhD and postdoc) are particularly encouraged to apply for these.  

Abstract Guidelines

In order to submit an abstract delegates must first register for the conference.  The abstract submission link will then be emailed to the delegate. 

All abstracts should be submitted via the abstract submission website.

Abstracts should be maximum of 500 words, tables and images are allowed.

Oral Abstracts submission will close on Monday 16th April 2018.
Submitting Authors of Oral Abstracts will be notified of abstract acceptance during week commencing 21st May.

Poster Abstract submission will close on Monday 4th June 2018.
Submitting Authors of Poster Abstracts will be notified of abstract acceptance during week commencing 25th June.

Submitting authors can amend abstracts until the close date.

All correspondence regarding the abstracts will be sent to the submitting author.  Please note that authors of abstracts are not automatically registered for the conference.
