The 43rd Annual Meeting of the Molecular Biology Society of Japan

Late-breaking Abstract

Abstract submission has been closed on September 15, however, we assume there are some more researchers with latest accomplishments. To make the meeting more meaningful, we would like to call for “Late-breaking Abstracts” from those who could not make it in time for the former deadline.
We look forward to receiving your abstracts!

Late-breaking Abstract Submission period:
October 5 (Mon) - 26 (Mon), JST 17:00, 2020   Closed

  • Those who submitted an abstract for a symposium, workshop or poster cannot submit a late-breaking abstract.

We will take all technically possible measures to make presentation materials unrecordable and unprintable. However, it may be difficult to completely block duplication. We would appreciate your understanding when submitting your abstracts.

You can access the abstract submission system from the link at the bottom of this page.

<Requirements for Presenter>
  • A membership of MBSJ is a must. Also, payment of annual membership fee for 2020 must be completed.
    If you are not a member, please apply for a membership first. For those who have not paid this year’s annual membership fee, please complete the payment as soon as possible.
  • Abstracts must be submitted by presenters.
    The name of the person who submitted an abstract will be automatically marked as the presenter in the program booklet and the online abstracts.
  • Only one abstract can be submitted per person as a presenter.
    You can be a presenter for only one abstract. Those who submitted an abstract for a symposium or workshop, a free paper cannot submit a late-breaking abstract.
