The Call for Abstracts is Now Open!


Submit your 2018 abstract submission!

Abstracts should be focused on the fetus or the preterm baby, particularly on brain development and/or the nervous system. Abstract topics may include, but are not limited to, neuroimaging, non-invasive monitoring, dysmorphology, genetics and/or counseling, congenital infections, fetal interventions, placenta, fetal/neonatal outcome, ethics, and fetal program development/quality improvement.

The deadline for submitting abstracts is June 8th, 2018.



Abstracts should be 2600 characters, not including titles. Figures and tables cannot be submitted during the abstract submission process, but will be able to be printed on the abstract boards. 

Posters will be set up throughout the symposium, with attendees and presenters strongly encouraged to be present during breaks. Selected abstracts will be posted online on our website the week before the conference and shared with attendees with the potential for formal publication down the road.

An external selection committee will review abstracts during the symposium, with the first place Andrea Poretti Award given out at the end of the symposium.
