    2021 Congress Call for Abstracts

    Call for Abstracts

    ISAM Congress 2021 is scheduled for May 22-26, 2021 in Boise, Idaho, USA. We are pleased to invite you to submit an abstract for review.

    Abstracts of the International Society for Aerosols in Medicine Congresses are indexed within the Journal of Aerosol Medicine and Pulmonary Drug Delivery (JAMPDD). ISAM continually works with JAMPPD to make sure that all timelines are met so that the abstracts receive the increase visibility that publication in the journal provides.

    The extended deadline for abstract submission is February 15, 2021. After February 15, 2021, the review committee and others supporting the Congress will work diligently to review the submitted abstracts. Accepted abstracts will be presented as posters at the Congress in Boise, contingent upon Congress registration. The review committee may give consideration for an oral presentation as well as a possible award. Authors will be informed regarding acceptance at the latest mid-March 2021.

    In addition to live poster presentations at the Congress, we are planning a virtual poster hall which will allow virtual registrants to participate. Digital poster presenters will have the option of posting a 5-minute oral presentation of their work with the poster, with contact information for feedback and ongoing dialogue.

    ISAM does not accept for its conferences any research that has been funded by tobacco entities. To view the full ISAM Tobacco Involvement Policy, please visit www.isam.org/about.

    Late breaking abstracts may be submitted until 23 April 2021. If accepted, late breaking abstracts may be presented as posters both live and virtually and may be considered for inclusion for podium presentation under Hot Topics but will not be published in the journal.

    Abstract Format and Submissions
