The iCRISPR-2021 organising committee invites all interested individuals to submit a scientific abstract and an accompanying graphical abstract for an e-poster presentation related to the following topics:
Abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee and a select few will be shortlisted for oral presentations. Notification of acceptance for an oral presentation will be sent to the Presenter's e-mail address along with presentation guidelines.
All abstracts will be included in the online abstract booklet that will be distributed to conference participants. A certificate will also be provided stating that the participant presented a short talk or an e-poster.
Importantly, the e-poster presentations will be reviewed by an expert panel and cash prizes of Rs. 3000, Rs. 2000 and Rs. 1000 will be awarded to the first, second and third place winners, respectively.
When submitting your abstract as a word document or pdf during the registration process, please follow the guidelines below:
It is said, a picture is worth a thousand words! Therefore, in addition to the scientific abstract, all participants are encouraged to submit a graphical abstract as a single image. This will be posted on the conference twitter handle*, so we recommend that the graphical abstract to be in layman/non-expert language as much as possible, thus enabling outreach and public engagement.
The graphical abstract should be a single image, which may contain several parts. It helps the potential reader visualize the main process(es) or concepts, and key relationships among the elements that are being presented; it focusses on the central idea and 'brings it to life'.

*Note that the graphical abstracts will be reviewed by an expert panel and cash prizes of Rs. 2000, Rs. 1500 and Rs. 1000 will be awarded to the first, second and third place winners, respectively.
