Two types of abstracts can be submitted: a ‘classic abstract’ and a ‘project abstract’.

1 – Classic abstract

The ‘classic abstract’ presents results from a recently executed study or project. Abstracts containing data from a recently published study are allowed as well.

Follow the standard abstract structure: introduction, methods, results, discussion, references.

Email subject: GliMR_classic_NameResearcher

2 – Project abstract

The ‘project abstract’ allows researchers to present an ongoing or planned study or project. Reporting results is not mandatory. This type of abstract is open for all members, but mainly encourages early career researchers to present their work. It offers the opportunity to set-up collaborations, open up discussion, or present remaining project issues.
