Over 410 abstracts were presented at the two WORLDSymposium™ 2018 poster sessions. This was an excellent opportunity to see, hear and discuss specific research topics directly with the abstract authors, as well as enjoy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar with colleagues from around the globe.
If a poster number is not listed, it means the first author of the abstract chose not to present a poster at WORLDSymposium 2018.
All abstracts received by the October 1, 2017 deadline were considered for platform presentation and inclusion in the special lysosomes issue of Molecular Genetics and Metabolism (MGM) which was published in February 2018. Poster notifications and assigned poster numbers were sent to the first author of the submitted abstract at the beginning of December, 2017.
Late-breaking abstract submission (for poster consideration only) opened on November 1 and closed on December 1, 2017. Accepted late-breaking abstracts were not published in the February 2018 special “Lysosomes Issue” of Molecular Genetics and Metabolism.
Registered attendees received an electronic copy of the program and abstracts when they check in at the WORLDSymposium 2018 registration desk. The program and abstracts became copyrighted and were available to non-registrants through Elsevier.
It is the policy of WORLDSymposium to publish all abstracts with the list of authors exactly as the abstract were submitted to WORLDSymposium. The first author of the submitted abstract was listed as the presenting author on the Preliminary Program, Agenda, and Poster List.
