Information for Abstracts and Posters

To submit your abstract, you must first be registered for the event. If you are already registered, simply log in to your account and submit as many abstracts as you wish.

The participant who submits the abstract must be in the list of authors of the paper, even if you are not the first author, and will be responsible for it before the organization of the event, receiving all the communication and having the certificate linked to your account.

Criteria for acceptance of abstracts

All papers must be submitted to the evaluation of the Scientific and Technological Committee (SCT) of the symposium, in the form of structured abstract, through the form available on the site of the event. 

The abstracts accepted by this committee will be published in the event’s annals, presented as virtual posters during the event and will automatically be eligible for awards.

Some of these papers will be selected by the CCT for oral presentation in the main program of the event.

Criteria for approval of abstracts are:
Content: quality of the scientific and technological data presented in the paper, with clear and expressive results, directly related to the methodology and objectives proposed;

Methodology: coherence in the methodology applied in the work and compliance with the formatting requirements for abstracts;

Originality: the idea must be original and the work must not have been previously published in a journal or conference proceedings;

Relevance: the importance of the work for scientific and technological development, production, quality assurance, management and regulation in the area of immunobiologicals (vaccines, reagents and biopharmaceuticals) and the importance of the work for Brazilian and world public health;

Clarity: clarity of the information presented in the abstract, for perfect understanding of the work done.

There is no limit to the number of submitted or co-authored abstracts per participant.

During submission, abstracts should be classified into the following categories: vaccines, biopharmaceuticals, diagnostic reagents, management and others. Up to two areas of knowledge that best characterize the work should be chosen from a list available on the form.

The inclusion of co-authors’ names does not guarantee their participation in the event. If they wish to participate, they will all need to register individually.

Questions and concerns regarding abstract and poster submissions will be decided by the Symposium’s Scientific Committee, which will endeavor to meet all requests in a judicious manner. All decisions of the Committee regarding the acceptance of abstracts will be final and unappealable.

Specific criteria for abstracts with authors or co-authors working at Bio-Manguinhos:

For publication of papers by Bio-Manguinhos collaborators, whether authors or co-authors, authorization from NIT-Bio is required. This authorization must be made on the abstract submission form, attaching the authorizations for publication given by the following entities: immediate superior and vice-director. These authorizations must be requested before the work is submitted to the Scientific Committee, so that they can be attached to the form.

Proof of registration of Genetic Heritage must also be attached to the form, when applicable.

How to write an abstract

– The abstract consists of a text of maximum 2250 characters (not counting title, authors and institution). The system is programmed not to accept the abstract that exceeds this limit.

– The abstract must be written in English. Texts in Portuguese or languages other than English will not be accepted. 

– It cannot contain figures, graphs or tables.

– The text must follow the structure: introduction, objectives, methodology, results and conclusion.

– The title should be typed in lowercase, concisely describing the essence of the subject in up to 20 words.

– When submitting the abstract, the researcher must classify it in the category to which it belongs: V (vaccines), B (biopharmaceuticals), R (reagents), G (management) and ORT (other related topics) and indicate the area of knowledge.

– Abstracts must be submitted via the online form only. Submissions sent via fax, mail, e-mail or letter will not be accepted.

– Authors’ names should be written out in full (maximum of 10 authors). Their titles should not be included: Ex: Doctor, Professor, among others.

– The name of the main author must come first and the presenter must be identified and his/her e-mail address must be informed on the registration form.

– The presenter will be responsible for presenting the work through a recorded video, to be made available to all participants of the event in the poster area or included in the central program of the event. The guidelines for recording this video will be sent directly to the authors responsible for the papers approved in the 6th ISI after evaluation by the CCT.

– We suggest that the text be typed in a text editor before submission, and that each part be pasted in the respective field of the form, taking care that the formatting (such as symbols, superscript and subscript, etc.) is correct.

– The abstract can be submitted by any of the authors, who will be automatically responsible for the work to the organization of the event.

– Insert three keywords in order to clearly identify the subject of the paper. A keyword does not necessarily need to be composed of only one word, it can be an expression, such as: triple viral; liquid microarray; yellow fever; pharmaceutical assistance; evaluation of impacts; good storage and distribution practices.

In addition to these tips, Springer Nature, a 6th ISI supporter, has made available some free tutorials on scientific writing, which can be accessed by clicking here.

The authors of the abstracts selected by the CCT for participation in the symposium will receive detailed instructions for their participation through the event’s application, with guidance about the construction of the poster and video recording.

How to prepare the poster

The virtual poster should be organized in the same way as the physical poster, but instead of printing the final version, it should be saved in PDF format according to the recommendations below:


– As a visual resource, the poster should prioritize the presentation of the paper content through images, graphs and tables rather than long texts.

– Since it will be presented on screens (desktops, laptops and cell phones), the poster should contain the information in the most simplified form possible.

– The background of the poster should be white.

– It is not recommended to use photos as a background, behind the texts and other information, as this makes reading difficult.

– The text of the poster should be read quickly, so it is not advisable to have a long text. Specific information about the reported research will have a greater impact and make it more attractive to read.

– It is not necessary to repeat all the text of the abstract on the poster, as the texts will be available to the participants along with the poster graphic on the paper page.

– To mimic the experience of explaining your poster to visitors, authors can make available a video of up to 5 minutes with a simplified presentation of the poster. Authors selected for the exhibition will receive detailed guidance on how to record this video.

– The making and sending of the poster and video to the event organization is the authors’ responsibility.

– The poster should be organized as follows:

  • Title at top
  • Name of the authors
  • Institutions
  • Poster structure: introduction, objectives, methodology, results and conclusion

– The representatives of the approved posters will receive an e-mail with detailed information about the form of submission and the deadlines for delivery of the files, as well as the date and time for the exhibition of the work.

– There will be a dedicated area in the virtual platform for each poster, which will include the abstract, the poster, the video, as well as space for questions and answers and other forms of interaction with the audience.

– The authors who have their posters selected must keep their profile in the event application active and updated, and be attentive to all contacts made by the Scientific and Technological Committee, the Independent Awards Evaluation Committee and other participants of the event interested in better understanding their work.

– The interaction of the authors in the event’s application is essential to generate public interest, answer the questions of the Independent Evaluation Committee Awards, stimulate possible partnerships and collaborations and increase the visibility of the work, which will automatically compete for the Popular Poster Award, which will be delivered to the work most voted by participants of the symposium.

Award Criteria

There will be an Independent Award Evaluation Committee, composed of researchers of recognized excellence, not affiliated with Fiocruz, who will evaluate the posters for awards. The Commission members are:
