Call for Poster Abstracts

The Barth Syndrome Foundation 2016 Scientific and Medical Conference Organizing Committee (COC), comprised of members of the Barth Syndrome Foundation International Scientific & Medical Advisory Board, invites the submission of abstracts for poster presentations related to the scientific and/or clinical aspects of Barth syndrome. The deadline for abstract submission is May 15, 2016. All submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed by the COC. Once accepted, the submitting author will be expected to present his/her corresponding poster at a specific time during the Conference. Four poster presenters will be selected each to present a 15-minute talk on Friday, July 22, 2016 at the Scientific-Medical sessions. Therefore, it would be advantageous for every poster presenter to prepare no more than five (5) PowerPoint slides in the event that he/she selected at the Conference for this oral presentation.

All Conference registrants are encouraged to submit abstract(s)/poster(s) of their work. We also are interested in having relevant posters that have been presented within the last two years at other scientific/medical conferences re-displayed at this Conference. Please contact the COC with the details.

Travel stipends (up to US $800) will be available to those presenting NEW posters, based on need as well as quality of the poster. Completion of an additional form (available on our website at www.barthsyndrome.org) is required to apply for this funding, and we particularly encourage young investigators (including doctoral and post-doctoral attendees) to apply for this feature of the Conference.
