Abstract Submission Now Open. Deadline is January 9, 2018.


AAI invites abstracts of unpublished, original research to be submitted for presentation at the meeting. All abstracts will be reviewed by committees of experts in their respective areas and scheduled for presentation.

Outstanding abstracts submitted by January 9, 2018 will be selected for oral presentation in Block Symposia (oral presentations of abstract data). All abstracts, including those selected for Block Symposia, will be scheduled for poster presentation in Poster Sessions. The poster sessions are perhaps the most dynamic aspect of the AAI annual meeting: Take part in face-to-face discussions with abstract authors and learn about their most recent research.

Block Symposia are two-hour symposia consisting of short oral presentations of those abstracts that are deemed to be the best in each topic category. First authors have the option of requesting ‘Oral and Poster’ or ‘Poster Only’ when submitting their abstracts. Up to 40% of the submitted abstracts will be chosen to be presented in these symposia.


All accepted abstracts, including those selected for oral presentation in a Block Symposium, are programmed for poster presentation and must be displayed in the Exhibit Hall for the entire day of their assigned poster session. All authors must be present at their poster in their Poster Session on their assigned day between the hours noted above. Any authors failing to (1) display their poster throughout their assigned day AND (2) be present during their assigned poster session will forfeit publication of their abstract in The Journal of Immunology Special Meeting Abstracts Supplement.
