Call for Abstracts
Deadline for Abstracts: June 12th, 2017
Notification of Accepted Abstracts: August 2017
Abstracts are invited for consideration for the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society - Americas (TERMIS-AM) 2017 Conference and Exposition, December 3-6, 2017 at the 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.
Experts from academia, industry and government are invited to present timely research to successful implementation of technologies in all areas of tissue engineering/regenerative medicine.
Please submit your abstracts to one of the categories, which will then filter into the session titles upon the review of abstracts. If your abstract does not fit within any of these areas, please list your abstract in the "other" category. Please note sessions are slotted based on the amount of abstracts submitted.
- Biomaterial scaffolds
- Neuronal tissue
- Matrix & extracellular matrix biology in regenerative medicine
- Stem Cells
- Respiratory, Urologic and Gastrointestinal
- Dental & Craniofacial
- Regenerative Pharmacology
- Skin & Wound Healing
- Skin Regeneration and Immunomodulation
- Soft tissue
- Tissue chips & tissue organoid models
- Production Assistance for Cellular Therapies
- Biofabrication and Bioreactors
- Commercialization of Regenerative Medicine Products
- Regenerative Medicine Transplantation
- Unlocking the potential of gelatin and collagen in regenerative medicine
- Biobanking & Cryopreservation

Oral, Poster and iPoster Preference
The preferred method of presentation (oral, iPoster or poster) should be noted on the online submission form. Your preference will be noted by the reviewers. Final determination will be made by the Scientific Advisory Committee.
In addition to traditional posters, this year will also feature iPosters, which provide a cutting edge interactive Poster session on a touch screen. iPosters are an interactive, multimedia poster that can contain high-resolution images, detailed diagrams and tables, high-definition videos, audio narrations and as much content as you feel is necessary to present your research with the detail it deserves. Your iPoster will be displayed at the conference on large format, high-definition touch screens located in the exhibit hall. Visitors will be able to scroll through your content, click on images to enlarge them, and watch and listen to video and audio files if you choose to include them. Should you want to, visitors will be able to contact you by email or text. The iPosters will act similarly to traditional posters; there will be specific viewing times during the event where we will ask you to be present around the iPoster island to answer any questions and discuss your research.
If selected to present an iPoster, the author may be required to pay a nominal publishing fee, which would be similar to the cost of printing a traditional poster.
To view a sample of an iPoster please click the following link: Sample iPoster
- The abstract length is limited to 250 words. Which includes the overview as well as any references and authors.
- Please no figures or tables in the abstract.
- All abstracts will be published in the "Tissue Engineering, Part A" journal, if do not wish to have your abstract published please indicate so during your submission. All authors will have to agree to the submission and the publication of the abstract.
Title: Title should be brief, clearly indicating the nature of the presentation. Title should be in bold font and mixed case font followed by a single return. Do not put a period at the end of the title.
Example for Title: This is a Properly Formatted Abstract Title
Author(s): In upper and lower case letters as follows: First Name, Middle Initial Last Name of each author (underline the name of the presenting author) with the corresponding institution of the author's. Follow with a single return.
** Presenting authors are expected to pay their own travel expenses and conference registration fee(s).
Complete contact information (name, mailing address, and e-mail) for each author listed on the abstract must be entered before submitting the abstract file.
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.
Disclosures: Include any disclosure information here. 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:
- Stock options or bond holdings in a for-profit corporation or self-directed pension plan
- Employment (full or part-time)
- 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.
You may revise your abstract no later than 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time on Wednesday, June 12th, 2017, by returning to the site and logging in again. After the deadline, all completed abstracts in the system will be sent to the Abstract Reviewers for review. Any abstracts left "incomplete" will not be sent for review. There are no exceptions.
If the abstract must be withdrawn, the TERMIS-AM office must be notified in writing at least ONE month prior to the meeting via e-mail to Melanie Ryan at email@example.com
NOTE: All presenters are expected to cover their own travel and lodging expenses and pay the conference registration fees.
