Call for Late Breaking Abstracts
Late Breaking Abstracts (Posters only): Opened
Deadline for Late Breaking Abstracts: September 18, 2017
Notification of Accepted Abstracts: September 25, 2017
Abstracts for poster only are invited for consideration for the Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine International Society - Americas (TERMIS-AM) 2017 Conference and Exposition, December 3 – 6, 2017 at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, NC.
The TERMIS-AM 2017 Conference will feature an outstanding scientific program bringing together national and international communities of scientists, clinicians, industry leaders, post-doctoral fellows, graduate students entrepreneurs, and representatives of government funding agencies engaged in the fields of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
Individuals from academia, industry and government are invited to present timely research findings in all areas of tissue engineering/regenerative medicine.
Abstracts submitters should choose one of the following categories:
Review Criteria and Selection of Abstracts
The most innovative and promising basic, applied and clinical research within the following topical areas will be considered for poster presentations. Abstracts based on new research that has not been presented or published elsewhere will be given primary consideration.
Abstracts will be reviewed by members of the Program Planning Committee based on the following criteria:
- Quality of scientific content
- Originality of research
- Contribution and relevance to the field of tissue engineering/regenerative medicine
- Adherence to required format
- Late breaking abstracts are only considered for poster presentation.
- Abstracts that are not supported by full technical disclosure or are promotional rather than scientific in nature are discouraged.
- Abstracts will be submitted for inclusion in conference proceedings (online materials).
- Common reasons for abstract rejection are:
- Poorly supported research hypothesis/objective/rationale
- Experimental plan vague and/or not well documented/described
- Insufficient data collected
- Poor analysis of the data
- Conclusions not supported by the results
- Poor grammar/figures/tables
The abstract should clearly describe the nature of the research and the problem it addresses, and be presented in such language as to be understood by scientists representing the multi-disciplinary nature of tissue engineering. The abstract should summarize the objectives of the research, the methodology employed, results, and their significance.
Content should be organized as follows:
- Introduction, including hypothesis and objectives
- Materials and Methods
- Results, in appropriate detail
- Discussion and Conclusions
- References, to key literature
Authors must submit their abstract electronically by clicking on the link below:

References: May be included at the end. Please use a standard format, such as that shown below:
1. Langer R, Vacanti JP. Tissue Engineering. Science 260, 920, 1993.
Acknowledgments: Support from outside sources, such as Research Grants, should be listed here. Based on the standards set by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education and guidelines of the Food and Drug Administration as endorsed by the American Medical Association, any conflict of interest must be clearly recognizable. The indication of outside support does not affect the decision of abstract acceptance or rejection.

In order for your colleagues to properly evaluate the information, analysis and opinions presented in your abstract, it is important that they be informed of potential conflicts of interest pertinent to the research submitted. Therefore, conference management requires that all authors provide any relevant information concerning personal or professional circumstances and relationships that might reasonably be expected to affect the author's view on the subject. Examples include, but are not limited to:

- Ownership or partnership
- Consulting fees or other remuneration (payment)
- Non-remunerative positions of influence such as officer, board member, trustee or public spokesperson
- Receipt of royalties
- Speakers bureau
Appropriate disclosure will be stated in the scientific program and the abstract volume. If you do not have anything to disclose, you must indicate this on the online abstract submission form. The disclosure information you provide will not influence the review of your abstract. Abstracts will not be reviewed without proper completion of the disclosure section on the abstract submission form. Disclosure information for all authors is required upon abstract submission.
