Abstracts for the 18th International Symposium on NeuroVirology and 2022 Conference on HIV in the Central Nervous System are now being accepted. The deadline for abstract submission is midnight (US ET) on Monday, August 29th, 2022. Abstract submissions will only be accepted through the online submission system. Abstract length is limited to 300 words (excluding title, authors, and affiliations). Please refer to the abstract submission pages for additional details and guidance.

Oral presentations

A limited number of abstracts will be selected for delivery as oral presentations during the meeting. The number of speakers selected from abstracts will vary by session and track. For example, a session may feature one plenary speaker and three oral presentations selected from the pool of abstracts. Oral presentations will vary in length and include time for questions from meeting attendees.

Oral presentations - Investigators-In-Training (Students and post-doctoral fellows)

Investigators-In-Training (IIT) will be asked upon submission to identify as a student or post-doctoral fellow. We also ask that you check the Investigators-In-Training session for your abstract submission. All abstracts submitted by students and post-doctoral fellows will be considered for an oral presentation in the IIT session unless noted in the comments section. Please note that all abstracts selected for oral presentation must also be presented in the poster session.

Rush Initiative for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD) is a model of PhD graduate student training in biomedical sciences at Rush University Medical Center (Chicago, IL). The program was initiated as a mean to increase enrollment of PhD underrepresented in sciences students (URiS) at Rush University. It supports URiS students through rigorous mentoring, education, and research training. As part of our mission to mentor junior scientists, the International Society for Neurovirology is proud to sponsor a Rush-IMSD award in the amount of $500 for a URiS qualified candidate who has demonstrated excellence in the field of Neurovirology/NeuroHIV research. Only those who have submitted abstracts will qualify.

To apply for the award, the Mentor/PI should write a brief paragraph highlighting some of the accomplishments of their graduate student/postdoctoral fellow (on institution letterhead) addressed to the Investigator-in-Training selection committee and send to mail@isnv.org. The applicant selected will also give a 10 minute talk in the Investigator-in-Training session.

Acceptance and acknowledgement

The final decision regarding abstract acceptance and selection for oral presentation rests with the organizing committee for the Symposium. Each abstract submission will be acknowledged by an automated e-mail message.

Authors of submitted abstracts accepted by the committee to give oral presentations will be notified in advance of the meeting and will be provided with additional details about their assigned session and presentation timing.

Late Breaker Abstracts

Late breaker abstracts will not be solicited or accepted for this meeting.
