Abstract Submission Guideline 

  • All abstracts must be written in English.
  • All abstracts must be submitted on-line through the abstract submission system. Abstracts that are sent via e-mail will not be included in the abstract assessment process.
  • Use acronyms only when necessary and define all abbreviations and concepts in your abstract at first use.
  • Always make sure to check the final abstract with the system's preview function before submission, and edit or replace as necessary. It is the author's responsibility to submit a correct abstract. Any errors in spelling, grammar or scientific fact will be reproduced as typed by the author.
  • The submitting and presenting authors are required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before the submission.
  • Only the abstracts of presenting authors who have paid their registration fees by the early registration deadline (June 18, 2021) will be included in the Scientific Program, in the PDF abstract book and the ISEE 2021 Supplement issue of the Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP) Journal.

Abstract Preparation

Accepted abstracts will be published in the EHP Journal as they are submitted in the abstract submission system. Since there will be no editing process on the abstracts, the authors are required to avoid any typing errors, misordering of the authors, wrong spelling/writing about the institutions, etc.

  • Topic/Sub-Topic:A main topic and a sub-topic that is relevant for your abstract must be selected during Step 1 of the submission process. The Scientific Committee reserves the right to change the topics during the abstract assessment process.
    The topics and subtopics for ISEE 2021 are listed on the conference website. Please click HERE for reviewing the topics/sub-topics before proceeding with the submission process.
  • Presentation type: Late-breaking abstracts' submitters can select only e-poster presentation type.

    If any of the authors have more than one affiliation, enter both affiliations in a compounded style as one affiliation: i.e., if there are 5 authors and 2 of whom are from same affiliation (Institute A), 2 of whom are from another (Institute B), and 1 of whom is from both affiliations (Institutes A and B), you will have 3 institutions, NOT 5 or NOT 2. (First institution: Institute A, second one: Institute B and the third one: Institute A & Institute B). Include the City and Country for each affiliation.
