Help Us Program Your Abstract Correctly. You have to write down the topic of your poster at the top of the abstract. All abstracts are going to be selected as posters. 




In addition to submitting your abstract, you must register for the meeting. After submitting your abstract, you must submit a separate application if you wish to apply for any of the Society awards and follow the process required by the society. Read the Scientific Integrity Policy. 





After you submit your abstract, you will receive a confirmation of receipt. Please print this information and keep it for your records. If you do not receive a confirmation of receipt, then your abstract was not successfully submitted and it will not be reviewed or programmed by the Program Committee.  

The first author will be notified via email once the abstract is accepted and later the date of their presentation as poster. 
Title, date, and time of session in which abstract has been programmed as posters. 
This information will be available through the abstract system. It will also be emailed prior to the early registration deadline. Co-authors will not receive notification.

Investigations involving animals reported in abstracts must have been conducted in conformance with the Ethical Principles for the use of animals in research and education.

2. Authors are not permitted to submit an abstract on work that has previously been published. Exception: if additional data/research is added to a previously published abstract the abstract may be accepted.


3.  While it is rare for a submission not to be programmed, the congress reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to decline any abstract viewed as inappropriate.

II Pan American Congress of Physiological Sciences invite to all the authors whose abstract was approved to publish it as a SHORT COMMUNICATIONS.  The text is similar than an original paper but the extension is limited to 10 000 characters and it could include two table and two figures maximum and 10 references. This short communications will be publishing during 2019 in a devoted number of Revista Cubana de Investigaciones Biomédicas. 


You have to register as author before to send the paper at:


This journal is indexed at SciELO, Scopus and SciELO Citation Index by WoS among other database. This short communication should be divided in Title with authors, institutions and corresponding author, Abstract (250 words), Key words (6 ), Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions and References. Short communications are concise articles that are no longer than 10 000 words (7-8 pages) in Arial 12 simple space.


Short communications do not cover in detail background information about the problems treated or the applications, rather they provide key pointers to the reader. The work reported needs to be technically sound, innovative and significantly unique, advancing the state of the art. Our intent is to make sure that your poster presentation in the II Pan American Congress of Physiological Sciences will be supported with a paper in order to get disseminated as fast as possible. Authors must include a statement about the word count in their submission. They contain only essential references, and minimal tables and figures, placing full attention on empirical methods, results and data analysis, and the implications of those results. Reports focus on issues of methodology and observation. As such, they play an efficient and integral role in progressing the field of physiology from a social scientific perspective.


Submission deadline: May 1, 2019.
