Abstract Guidelines


Abstract submission is closed. See you at the conference!


There are many opportunities to present your work at the US HUPO meeting.

For Talks: There will be 28 talks selected from submitted abstracts. These 28 talks will be featured in the parallel sessions alongside the invited speaker lectures. There will be up to 50 lightning talks selected from poster presentations and up to 10 tips & tricks talks selected for a special plenary session on Wednesday morning.

For Posters: Posters are highlighted at the US HUPO meeting with multiple poster sessions for formal presentations and networking mixers for informal visiting and presenting. 


How to Submit your Abstract

You will need the following to complete the abstract submission:  Title (20 word limit), authors, affiliations of authors (institute, City, State or Country), and abstract (300 word limit). You will also be asked to enter corresponding author and contact information.  All email communication regarding the abstract will be sent to the corresponding author.  

Be sure to enter the email address accurately.  Once you submit your abstract you will receive an acknowledgement by email. 


During the submission process you will be asked to select an oral topic and a poster topic, or just a poster topic if you do not wish to make an oral presentation.  If you select an oral topic you must also select a backup poster topic. Choose from the following topics that best fit your abstract. If you are an invited speaker who received an invitation from USHUPO, select "Invited Speaker."

Do You Want to Present a Talk at US HUPO 2020?

There are several different talk opportunities available. You will select your preferences during abstract submission.

PARALLEL SESSION TALKS - Each parallel session will feature at least two talks selected from submitted abstracts to complement the invited speakers. Be sure to select the oral session that best suits your abstract during the submission process.

LIGHTNING TALKS - There will be two general sessions filled with 3-minute lightning talks. An exciting (and entertaining) way to highlight your poster presentation and a great opportunity to present your research to a national audience. Indicate whether or not you wish to be considered for a lightning talk during abstract submission.

TIPS & TRICKS TALKS - Have you created a novel work-around in the lab? Perhaps your labmates know you as Inspector Gadget? Show us what you’ve got in this ‘best of’ session. Describe your novel tip or trick in the online abstract submission (50 words or less).
