After Submitting an Abstract...
HUGO Gene Nomenclature
Authors should use HUGO approved gene nomenclature in their abstracts and posters. Please check your genes via the Human Gene Nomenclature Database of approved symbols. If you cannot find your gene symbol then please complete a gene symbol submission form. Any information submitted will be treated in the strictest confidence. If you have any other queries about gene nomenclature please contact the HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Abstracts are now available for viewing on-line.
Call for Abstracts
All participants are invited to submit an abstract of original current work to one of the meeting workshops, for possible poster presentation at the meeting. After the closing date (Fri 24 Feb 2006), up to eight abstracts will be selected for oral presentation at each of the HGM2006 Workshops. All accepted abstracts will be included in the meeting programme book, and will be published on the meeting web site after the meeting.
On-line submission of Abstracts will be available later in 2005.
Choosing a Workshop for Your Abstract
Abstracts should be submitted to one of the workshops listed on the Workshops Programme page. Your abstract may fit into more than one workshop topic, so you may choose whichever you think an appropriate Workshop for your abstract. You can make your actual choice of Workshop from the list on the abstract submission form.
Selection for Poster Presentation
Abstracts will be peer reviewed as quickly as possible and the Contact Author specified on the submission form will be notified by email if the abstract has been accepted or rejected for a Poster Presentation. Abstracts will also be reviewed by the HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee for the use of approved gene symbols. See adjacent information on this page.
Selection for Workshop Oral Presentation
After the closing date (24 Feb 2006), all abstracts which have been accepted for Poster Presentation will be reviewed by Workshop Chairs, and up to eight abstracts selected for Oral Presentation at each Workshop Session. Contact Authors will be notified by email in early/mid March if their abstract has been chosen for Oral Presentation, and they should accept or reject the offer as soon as possible.
Please note: if your abstract is selected for Oral Presentation you must still present a poster - this allows delegates attending concurrent workshops an opportunity to discuss work with the author(s).

Submission instructions and the submission form can be found on the Abstract Submission page.
