Late Breaking Deadline for Submission – 1 June 2018

Word Limit – 350 words

The Collegium Internationale Allergologicum invites members and non-members to submit abstracts for review for poster or oral presentation at the 32nd Symposium in Mallorca, Spain. 

The following guidelines address key factors that the Collegium Internationale Allergologicum Organizing Committee considers when reviewing abstracts. Attention to these details will assist the Committee in making their decision.

  1. Abstracts should contain a concise statement of the problem under investigation; describe experimental methods used; contain specific findings and data (promises such as “the results to be completed” are not appropriate); and contain conclusions based on the data presented (statistical analyses should be used when appropriate to support the conclusions).
  2. Define all concepts and abbreviations at first use. Do not use abbreviations in the title of the abstract.
  3. Previously published abstracts will NOT be considered.
  4. All abstract presenters will be required to register for the symposium, and pay all registration and travel costs.
  5. Abstract submissions can only be made by Collegium Internationale Allergologicum members, candidates or sponsored non-members.

Abstracts can be submitted in the following categories:
