The International Society for Aerosols in Medicine (ISAM) was founded in 1970. The objectives of ISAM are to stimulate and further the interdisciplinary cooperation and exchange of information in all aspects of aerosol research in medicine including health effects of inhaled aerosols and pulmonary drug delivery.
Abstracts of International Society for Aerosols in Medicine Congresses are indexed within the Journal of Aerosol Medicine and Pulmonary Drug Delivery (JAMPDD). ISAM continually works with JAMPPD to make sure that all timelines are met so that the abstracts receive the increased visibility that publication in the journal provides. The deadline for abstracts for ISAM 2017 was 01 March 2017. With that deadline passed the organization, committee and others supporting the congress are diligently working to review the abstracts that have been submitted. These will be screened for acceptance, oral presentations and potentially awards.
For anyone that missed the 01 March 2017 deadline the ISAM 2017 organizing committee is pleased to announce that late breaking abstracts will be extended until 01 May 2017. Late breaking abstracts will be screened for acceptance to be presented as posters only at the 2017 ISAM congress. They will not be published in JAMPPD, however, copies of the late breaking abstracts will be available at the registration desk during the Congress. Anyone who was not able to meet the 01 March 2017 deadline is encouraged to submit to the late breaking abstracts.
Please send your late breaking abstracts until May 01 to Wiebke: firstname.lastname@example.org
Students may choose to be considered for the Student Research Award and the Best Oral Presentation.
a. The Student Research Award is given to an investigator who is currently a full-time student enrolled in an M.D., Ph.D. or Masters program and has demonstrated outstanding independent research in the field of aerosols in medicine. The award will be based on the scientific content of the submitted abstract and a nomination letter from the student’s research supervisor supporting the student’s excellence and future potential in the field of aerosols in medicine. In addition to a cash award ($500) and certificate, the 1st place winner will be sponsored (registration, travel, and hotel) to the ISAM 2017 Congress and will commit to publish part of his/her work in the Journal of Aerosol Medicine and Pulmonary Drug Delivery. A second and third place winner will each be reimbursed for their travel expenses to the Congress.
b. The Best Oral Presentation competition is open to both pre and postdoctoral students (including medical fellows) and is based on both the scientific content and quality of their presentation. The top 5 applicants (based on content of their abstracts) will be chosen to present in a special Congress symposia. The winner will be awarded a cash award ($500) and certificate.
