HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Research Competition is composed of two parallel categories: the Basic Research Category and the Clinical Research Category.
The candidates in each category compete within the category and, in each one, the top winners will be selected.
There are three different phases in the Research Competition:
Abstract Submission Phase
OPEN UNTIL 16TH DECEMBER 2018 23:59h (GMT+0:00)
The first step is to fill in the Registration Form. Then you must fill in the Abstract Submission Template and send it, in Word® format, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the same email, you should also send a copy of your passport/identity card and student identity card.
The Abstract Submission phase ends on December 16th 2018 at 23h59 GMT+0h00. Then, the abstracts will be reviewed by the jury members. All candidates will be notified if their application was admitted or rejected to the next phase, until the 4th of January, 2019.
Attention! The candidate must wait for the jury’s decision to register in the conference as a Presenting Student or a Non-Presenting Student.
Submitting an abstract to AIMS Meeting Research Competition that meets the criteria explained in Research Competition Guidelines guarantees an entry to AIMS Meeting, even if the abstract is not admitted for presentation in Poster Sessions. Even if the AIMS Meeting is sold out, you will always be able to register!
The Poster Sessions will take place on the Friday 15th and Saturday 16th of March, in the morning, in the Congress venue. You will present your poster on either day to a jury composed of researchers and physicians of scientific excellence and of various backgrounds.
Up to three best poster presentations in each category will be selected and presented orally in the Plenary Session.
The Basic Research Plenary Session will take place on the 16th March and the Clinical Research Plenary Session on the 17th March.
The results will be announced publicly at the Award Ceremony on the afternoon of the 17th of March.
