The 2018 Society for Melanoma Research International Congress provides the opportunity to present and/or view innovative data related to clinical and basic melanoma research and to network with an international audience representing a diverse spectrum of expertise.
This year’s congress will host many proffered papers from a broad range of different topics, thereby increasing the opportunity to have your work in the spotlight and share it with the global clinical and research community.
Participants interested in presenting data should submit abstracts online. Abstract submission will begin spring, 2018. SMR will also notify everyone once the submission site is open. The Scientific Review Committee will select abstracts for oral and poster presentation. Once accepted, all abstracts will be published in Pigment Cell and Melanoma Research.
If you have any questions or need assistance regarding your abstract, please contact Kristina Catrambone at 518-399-7181 or at [email protected].
Deadline for abstract submissions is 9 July 2018! We look forward to receiving your submission!
