Poster presentations are an integral component of ISSX meetings. We encourage all those involved in the fields of metabolism, pharmacology, toxicology, molecular biology and other related disciplines to consider submitting an abstract for a poster presentation at the 12th International ISSX Meeting to be held in Portland, Oregon 28 - 31 July 2019.

The second call for abstracts is now open and will close on Sunday, 12 May 2019.

Please read all of the information contained on this page before submitting your abstract for review.


Follow these steps to submit your abstract:

  1. Review requirements and guidelines outlined below.
  2. Select the option to Create Profile (by creating a profile, you can submit multiple abstracts with one login)
  3. Next, select the option to Submit an Abstract and Add New.
  4. Once you have created your profile, you can add new abstract submissions and enter your abstract details in the fields provided.
    • General Abstracts - This is the only option for submissions to the Second Call for Abstracts. All are invited to submit to the general call for abstracts! 
    • Poster Award Competition - The Poster Award Competition closed when the First Call for Abstracts closed on 2 April 2019. Any submissions to this category made after 3 April 2019 will be considered only for the General Abstracts.
  5. Review your abstract and choose to submit or save and submit later. Once you submit, you cannot make edits so submit with caution!



It is a requirement that at least one author named in the abstract be a current, paid-in-full ISSX member. To join ISSX, please complete the membership application. To renew your membership, please visit www.issx.org/renew.  By submitting an abstract one must confirm that if their abstract is accepted that they will attend the 12th International ISSX Meeting.


There is one submission category:

  1. General Abstract Submissions: Open for all abstracts for poster presentation at the meeting.


Follow these guidelines to complete your submission:

  • Primary Presenter: Please provide all required information for the presenting author including a valid email address. A presenter must be identified in order for abstracts to be considered.

  • Co-Authors: Enter all additional authors in the order they should appear in the program. The abstract submission form will guide you through the process of entering the author(s) information.

  • Special Notice: Do not include the author information in the body of the abstract. At least one author listed must be a member of ISSX or your abstract will not be reviewed.

  • Primary Keyword: For each submission, indicate an abstract topic (e.g. primary keyword), provide complete presenter contact information, and include the abstract text.

  • Abstract Title: Type the abstract title using ALL UPPERCASE LETTERS. All abstracts must be in English - the official language of the 12th International ISSX Meeting.

  • Abstract Body: The abstract text should be typed single-spaced and may not exceed 500 words (350 to 400 words is preferred). Type the text as one paragraph. All references included in the text should be numbered and accompanied by the full citation, including author’s names, title, journal name, volume, number, inclusive paging, and year of publication.

  • Abstract Content: Abstracts must describe previously unpublished work. Abstracts previously published for other domestic or international meetings cannot be accepted.

    • If the abstract is about metabolism/disposition/mode of action of the compound, then the chemical name or a partial structure must be included. If the compound causes a well-characterized biological response that is independent of structure (for example, compounds are a general inhibitor of some process, like apoptosis or chaperone function and structure is unrelated to the central theme), it is acceptable to include it with only the generic name.

    • Abstracts should include a statement of hypothesis, methods used, supporting data, results and conclusions. Abstracts found to be lacking in sufficient clarity, relation to the meeting topic areas, or scientific content may be rejected.

  • Review before You Submit: Preparation of the abstract should be rigorous and the abstract checked for errors and accuracy before submission. Errors in the submitted abstract cannot be corrected once the abstract is accepted. Errors can be corrected in the poster, so the whole set of data and information presented is accurate. Accepted abstracts will be printed in the abstract book as submitted and so care should be taken to ensure that abstracts are free of errors.


Please note these details regarding abstract scoring and acceptance notification:

  • The First Call and Poster Awards Competition Abstracts are now closed and under review. If you would like to submit an abstract at this time, it will be scored with the Second Call Abstract submissions.

  • First Call and Poster Award Competition Abstract acceptance notifications will be sent to primary authors via email in April 2019.

  • Second Call Abstracts will be reviewed when the call closes in May.

  • General abstracts are reviewed for accuracy, clarity, and quality of the research presented. These abstracts are scored blindly by a panel of reviewers and are either accepted or rejected.

  • The Poster Award Competition is now closed and any abstracts submitted to this call now will be considered only for the General abstracts.

  • Second Call Abstract acceptance notifications will be sent to primary authors via email in May 2019.
