New in 2017 SLB is starting 2 initiatives you should be aware of related to abstracts.  First, during abstract submission, there will be a check box you can select if you do NOT want your work tweeted about during the meeting.  While SLB cannot garantee the activities of attendees, the society will post a "no tweeting" symbol with your abstract to share your wishes with the audience.  Secondly, there is another new check box during abstract submission related to speaker disclosurers.  You must read and agree to this standard speaker policy when submitting your abstract.  Look for the coming details and contact us with questions.

Poster Flash Talks

SLB will feature selected abstracts to participate in a pre-meeting Poster Flash Talk session. Highly recognized abstracts that are not selected for a concurrent session talk and indicated an interested in giving a flash talk will be considered to present a brief (5 minute) talk.  Students are encouraged to attend this session to support their peers and to kick-off the SLB meeting together.   Invitations for the Poster Flash Talk session will be sent along with regular concurrent and poster session placements have been announced. Look for the check box during abstract submission to indicate your interest in being considered.

Keep the connections going after the conference

All abstract submitters who are SLB members will have the option of posting a PDF of their poster on the SLB website after the meeting.  In addition to the poster PDF, you may include a link to your CV and lab URL. Another great benefit of SLB membership!
