AAI invites abstracts of unpublished, original research to be submitted for presentation at the meeting. All abstracts will be reviewed by committees of experts in their respective areas and scheduled for presentation.
Outstanding abstracts submitted by January 11 will be selected for oral presentation in Block Symposia (oral presentations of abstract data). All abstracts, including those selected for Block Symposia, will be scheduled for poster presentation in Poster Sessions. The poster sessions are perhaps the most dynamic aspect of the AAI annual meeting: Take part in face-to-face discussions with abstract authors and learn about their most recent research.
Block Symposia are two-hour symposia consisting of short oral presentations of those abstracts that are deemed to be the best in each topic category. First authors have the option of requesting ‘Oral and Poster’ or ‘Poster Only’ when submitting their abstracts. Up to 40% of the submitted abstracts will be chosen to be presented in these symposia.
Poster Sessions will be held daily (unopposed by any other session) in the Exhibit Hall from 2:30 PM – 3:45 PM. Almost 2,000 authors will be present at IMMUNOLOGY 2017™ to discuss their most recent work, network with colleagues, and discover the latest developments in their field.
