Annual Meeting

Support for students at the 29th ISFN Annual Meeting 2021

In addition to a lower registration fee and a special reduced accommodation rate at the Queen of Sheba hotel, ISFN supports students and post-docs, who present a poster or deliver a short lecture at the ISFN meeting, by paying directly to the hotel half of their accommodation expenses. This support is based on TBD NIS per student for a two-night stay in a double room (January 10-12,2021), or TBD NIS for a one night stay, in a double occupancy room. Accordingly, the support for one night in a triple occupancy room is TBD shekels for a two-night stay, or TBD shekels for a one-night stay. 


Abstract Submission is available only after registering to the meeting.

Deadline for Abstract Submission - November 15, 2021

Abstract Submission Fee - 120 NIS paid by a separate payment for each submitted abstract.

Receipts are automatically sent to your mail within 24 hours after payment.

You may submit up to three abstracts using your Registration Form.

It is possible to designate a different presenter for each abstract, but please note: each Presenting Author is entitled to present only one abstract in the meeting.

There are 22subjects (see list at the end) for you to mark in which one your abstract fits the best.
Please note that the "Field of Research" stage was skipped. However, in the abstract submission process, you will still be asked to select the "Field of Research", so just leave the text "abstracts 2021" as is in the box on the right side and proceed with your submission as instructed.

Key words - please choose up to 4 key words that best describe the research you want to present

Oral /Poster presentation

You can choose your preference of presentation – oral or poster, but the final decision will be made by the organizing committee.

1. To abstracts relating to well-developed research projects.

2. Please note that only one representative from each laboratory may lecture in each symposium.

If you are not selected for an oral presentation, you will be asked to present a poster. These posters will be included in the posters competition.
