Sign Up to Schedule Abstracts into Poster Sessions

Most of our review positions are filled. However, we are still looking for ONE additional reviewer in these topic areas:
  • 1- Actin Cytoskeleton
  • 19- Cell Biology of Microbes and Parasites
  • 22- Science Education

The ASCB is offering early-career, mid-career and postdoctoral members an opportunity for involvement on the Cell Bio 2023 Poster Abstract Programming Task Force.  The primary purpose of the task force is to review the abstracts submitted for poster presentation and program them into poster sessions for the upcoming annual meeting.

The committee will review abstracts provided via PDF in an email (accompanied by a google spreadsheet link) from Friday, September 8 through Friday, September 15 at midnight EDT. Reviewers will indicate if any abstracts need to be assigned to a different topic, or if the abstract does not meet the minimum standards required for acceptance. Reviewers must also be available to review late abstracts from October 13 to 20. This second review will take place entirely online and will require you to both review the new abstracts submitted to ensure they fit topically and meet the minimum requirements. You and your co-reviewers will then also create sessions for all accepted abstracts based on guidelines and instructions from the ASCB staff. Task force members will also need to be available on October 23 for any questions related to the review and to ensure all abstracts assigned to your topic have been placed in a session.

Selection is first-come, first-served.

Fill out the form below to participate. You will need to select a first and second preference topic, with the option to select a third, and fourth preference as backup. Please click here and visit the "Abstract Topics" tab to view available topics, with their respective subtopics. You and your co-reviewers(s) will be responsible for all of the subtopics under that umbrella topic. There are typically 30 to 170 abstracts to review per umbrella topic. The number of reviewers per topic will be determined by the number of abstracts submitted so each reviewer will have approximately 25-50 abstracts to review and program. Please only pick topics you are comfortable with so you will be able to assign abstracts to proper categories and in an appropriate order.

If you are selected as the reviewer for a topic, details will be sent prior to each review with instructions and more information.

We will contact you by August 27 to let you know if you have been scheduled to serve on this task force.
