  call for abstracts

The Organising Committee and the Scientific Committee reviewed the abstracts. A number of them have been selected for oral presentations (they are listed below). All other submitted abstracts, with only two exceptions clearly dealing with topics out of the Vibrio field, can be considered as accepted for poster presentations during the conference from November 28th until December 1st, 2007. Download here the index posters position

The posters size should not exceed 1 meter high by 0.70 meter wide (portrait) and have to be presented in English language. If the size is not respected, it will be impossible to present your poster. Please bring tape or magnets to hold it on the metal poster board (not provided on site).

For any further information concerning your abstract or poster, please contact the Conference secretariat
