AT/ATM-related abstracts will be given preference for selection of presentations.

General Abstracts were due on January 15, 2010. Submission is now closed.

General Abstracts due on January 15, 2010. They will be reviewed by members of the Organizing Committee and the session co-chairs. Co-chairs will select 1-3 of the high scoring abstracts for their own sessions; approximately 6-8 of the abstracts will be selected for the Session on “Young Investigator Awards”. The remaining abstracts will be invited as poster presentations. Thus, each session will be almost independently organized by the Chairs of that session, in coordination with the Organizing Committee. Authors will be notified by February 10, 2010.

A second abstract deadline will be March 1, 2010 for the “Late Breaking Results” session. Authors will be notified by March 10, 2010.

Travel and lodging support will be provided for all investigators selected for oral presentations and registration fees will be waived. Registration fees will be waived for Poster Presenters as well, if sufficient funds are available.

The Workshop will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Redondo Beach on 11-14 April 2010. A limited number of rooms have been reserved for workshop participants at special conference rates. Unused rooms will be released after March 15, 2010.

Abstract should be prepared as a Microsoft Word document according to the specifications:

  • Font size/type: Arial, 12 points (justified)
  • Title of Presentation (Bolded and in capital letters)
  • Names of all Authors (Underline presenting Author)
  • Affiliations of authors
  • Text of abstract (< 250 words)
  • See format example below.
Some abstracts will also be selected for oral presentation. If you would like to be considered for an oral presentation, please submit your abstract by January 15, 2010.

Format example for abstract:

DNA double-stranded breaks trigger activation of the ATM protein kinase, which then coordinates cell cycle arrest with DNA repair or apoptosis. Our data suggest that ATM activation ….

Speakers invited by session chairs must also submit an abstract by February 15. Please submit your abstract by yourself by the above deadline.
