The following guidelines address key factors that the SBT Annual Meeting Scientific Program Committee considers when reviewing abstracts. Attention to these details will assist the Review Committee in making their decision.

    1. Abstracts should contain a concise statement of the problem under investigation; describe experimental methods used; contain specific findings and data (promises such as “the results to be completed” are not appropriate); and contain conclusions based on the data presented (statistical analyses should be used when appropriate to support the conclusions).

    1. Define all concepts and abbreviations at first use. Do not use abbreviations in the title of the abstract. View Sample Abstract


  1. Abstracts are considered official communications to the conference, and will be published in the Journal of Immunotherapy.
  2. Receipt of abstracts will be acknowledged via an e-mail to authors upon successful submission.
  3. Notification for those abstracts selected for award or presentation will be sent by mid-September. *Please remember to check the award eligibility box when submitting your abstract.

    • Vaccine/Dendritic Cells
    • Pharmacogenomics/Discovery
