Call for Abstracts

Accepted abstracts will be published on the Congress website and in an electronic abstract book.

Late breaking abstracts are to be submitted using the online abstract submission system. Submissions of late breaking abstracts by mail, fax or e-mail will not be considered.

Abstract submitters will receive an e-mail confirmation of receipt immediately after submitting their abstract. If you do not receive this e-mail, please contact

Registration is not required abstract submission, but presenters of accepted abstracts and late breaking abstracts must register before the regular registration deadline or the abstract will be rejected.

The abstract book will be made available electronically to registrants through both the IUIS and ICI 2016 websites two weeks prior to the Congress.
