Abstracts are submitted using the online Abstract submission system.

The deadline for the abstract submission has been extended until Friday 9th of February, 2018!

Start the submission process by requesting an abstract ID in the Abstract submission system. The abstract ID and password can be used to login to the system to submit your abstract details. Notice that you can login and modify your abstract as many times as you wish until you submit the abstract for review. After the submission, the abstract is locked for modifications (except contact person details). Remember to submit your abstract before the abstract submission deadline!

Information collected on the submission form:

  • Contact person information
  • Author information
  • Preferred presentation type (Ordinary oral or Small Talk)
  • Abstract title
  • Abstract text (max 300 words)
  • Keywords (1-4)

The system generates an abstract PDF using the information filled in the form. The generated PDF file can be previewed to check that all special characters are presented correctly before submitting the abstract for review. If you have any questions, please contact virologipaivat2018@helsinki.fi

Please note that there is no poster exhibition, instead the presenting persons are requested to give a short (3 min) oral presentation in the Small Talk session.

The Small Talk Session will replace traditional posters in the Virology Days this year. The moderated Small Talk Session will consist of brief oral presentations of 3 minutes each plus 2 minutes for questions from the audience (see specific guidelines for presentations below). The idea of the Small Talk session is to give a higher profile particularly to the work of young virologists. We also aim to facilitate discussion and scientific networking over the various topics the session will cover. The best Small Talk will be awarded during conference dinner.

  • One Title+authors slide plus max three slides: Material & Methods, Results, and Conclusions
