Regular Abstract submission for 2024 closed on Jan. 23 at 12:00 p.m., noon, ET. Late submissions will not be accepted.

ASM will offer another round of submission for Late Breaking abstracts with potentially high impact.

Submissions in this category should highlight novel, unanticipated, high impact or disruptive studies with a time-sensitive urgency to present at ASM Microbe. Such findings should have clear public impact and/or advance a field significantly, or into new directions. Examples in this category include work related to a new outbreak or research describing a newly uncovered biological mechanism.

Important note: This is not an opportunity to submit an abstract that only describes a rigorous study that could have been submitted during the general submission periods. General submission abstracts will be rejected if submitted in the emergent findings category.

The submission portal will be open April 2-16 12 p.m., noon, ET.
