Abstract Submission Due Date:

Thursday, February 28th 2019

Call for Abstracts:

ARMI seeks presentations that focus on the development of tools to enable the scalable manufacture of consistent engineered tissues.  Abstracts must focus on specific tools or technologies, and discuss how they will advance the industry.

Government, Industry, Academia, and Non-Profit are encouraged to participate.  Abstracts should be between 200-500 words in length, with a title that summarizes the content in 10 words or less.  Abstracts must be submitted through the submission site below.  Submitted abstracts will be selected based on value added to the conference, and how well the topic fits within the scope of the agenda. Speaker slots are limited, so submit soon. The conference planning team may select an abstract for a category different than that submitted by the author.

Abstract topics include: 

  • Seed Pool Culture

  • Cell Harvest & Wash

  • Scaffold Seeding & Culture

  • Scaffold Fabrication

  • Preservation, Storage, & Transport


    Within Each Topic Area, Abstracts Should Focus On One of the Following:

  • Automation

  • Media, Reagents, or Raw Materials

  • Quality Systems

  • Measurements

  • Software - Date Management & Integrity

Benefits of Presenting:

Industry engineers, business leaders, and scientists have a great deal to offer one another and an ARMI Summit 2019 talk is a great way to do it. A good abstract is more than an academic exercise because you can establish your thought-leadership and subject matter expertise. Presenters receive complementary registration.

  • Event attendees include industry leaders from biotech, life science, medical device industries, academic experts from tissue engineering, biomaterials and biomedical engineering fields, leading clinicians, high level government representatives from the Department of Defense, FDA and NIH and non-profit leaders from cure and industry oriented organizations.

  • The venue is an ideal place to raise awareness about scientific progress, product and therapy developments, and industry trends.

  • Past speakers have included industry leaders from biotech, life science, medical device industries, academic experts from tissue engineering, biomaterials and biomedical engineering fields, leading clinicians, high level government representatives from the Department of Defense, FDA and NIH and non-profit leaders from cure and industry oriented organizations.

Tips for Submitting an Abstract:

  • Abstracts must include sufficient information for reviewers to judge the nature and significance of the topic. The abstract need not include your credentials.

  • The best abstracts lay out a problem and state the course of action you took to resolve it.

  • Focus on the application of your findings to improving the Engineered Tissue Products industry.

  • Your abstract should demonstrate that your talk will contribute solid technical knowledge in a particular area or present relevant, interesting information or experience that has not been published previously.

  • Make sure your abstract presents results and contains meaningful data. If your talk describes a platform or policy, state the key elements of your problem and how you solved it.

  • Restrict your abstract to 150-200 words. Section headers such as “introduction” “results” or “conclusions” are unnecessary. No citations are needed.

  • If you are rewriting something you have used before, check syntax and content to be sure it is relevant to this event.

  • Overt advertising does not establish you as a thought leader. Avoid abstracts that say “we compared our thing to the competition and ours is better.”

  • Advertising words such as “unsurpassed quality” do not belong in an abstract. Your title should avoid words “new” and “improved.”

  • If you want further information on “show don’t tell” in your Summit abstract, contact your Member Support Manager.
