The Congress registration fee (see Registrations & Costs) covers the attendance of the Pre-Congress Meeting for those accepted; dinner on Wednesday, 16 September, is also included. To apply, you must be a post-doc or a Ph.D. student and be under 35 years of age at the start of the congress. You must indicate your intention to participate during the registration procedure.

Participants accepted to the pre-Congress Meeting will receive a travel fellowship of 150 EUR to help defray from their lodging and travelling costs. N.B. To be eligible for the fellowship, the participant must have already paid the corresponding registration fee.

Details about eligibility to participate in the Pre-Congress Meeting can be found here.


Abstracts are accepted exclusively during registration or, after registration, through your personal myABCD2015 page (you will need to register to have access to the latter).

Only one abstract per participant is allowed. The abstract should be submitted by the presenting author only.

Abstracts guidelines:

  • the title must start in uppercase and continue in lowercase, except for conventional terms (ATP, DNA, NFκB, etc).
  • if more than one author, underline your name (the presenting author, in whatever position you appear in the author list) and use commas to separate the names; do not use 'and' before the last author. The presenting author's first name(s) and surname should be written in full; for all other authors, write first name(s) as initials and surname in full. If more than one affiliation, use sequential superscript numbers to identify each institution.
  • the abstract text must be no longer than 2000 characters, spaces included (which is roughly equivalent to 250 words).

The abstract submission deadline is 14 July 2015. The organisers will then review the received abstracts for oral or poster presentations.

Social dinner

The social dinner will be held at Palazzo Isolani, in Bologna city centre (Corte Isolani 8/a), on 19 September at 20:30.

Palazzo Isolani Palazzo Isolani

Palazzo Isolani is a beautiful and historical building in the heart of Bologna's medieval centre. It looks onto the splendid Piazza delle Sette Chiese (Seven Churches) and is very close to the famous Due Torri (Two Towers). Along with other buildings in the area, it is still privately owned by the Cavazza Isolani family. The seventeenth-century rooms on the ground floor are richly frescoed, decorated with damask tapestries and furnished with original furniture and paintings. These include portraits of the Isolani and the family of the famous King of Naples, Gioacchino Murat, to whom the Isolani became related in the early nineteenth century.
