Early Call for Abstracts

Play an active part in the scientific programme by presenting your work at the 49th FEBS Congress!
Submissions of abstracts for poster and oral presentations across the spectrum of the molecular life sciences will be welcome after registration and abstract submission open in November 2024, when full details of the Call for Abstracts will be posted on the website. 

Abstracts submitted by the March 2025 deadline can be considered for talks integrated into the symposia, as well as speed talks and poster presentations. Accepted abstracts will be displayed on the Congress website and app, and collated in an online supplement of FEBS Open Bio.

During abstract submission, you will be asked to select one topic from the categories below that best describes the content of your abstract: topics will be used for reviewing and indexing purposes, and assignment of oral presentations and poster display at the event.
