2019 4DN-ASCB Satellite Meeting:
bridging the 4D Genome with Cell Biology

Capital Hilton, Washington, D.C.
December 5-6, 2019

Submission Topics

There are a total of 4 scientific sessions for oral presentation in the Symposium at the 2019 4DN-ASCB Satellite Meeting.

User cases (utility of 4DN knowledge and technologies)

  • Cell biology
  • Nuclear organelle
  • Meiosis
  • Connect to ASCB
  • Disease/human biology/development
  • Concepts of 3D genome principles to revealing hyper/hypo methylations in cancer

Best practice sessions

  • General wisdoms to provide to the greater community
  • Tutorial sessions
  • Established techniques

What’s on the horizon, Session I

  • Recognizing that we have not solved all the questions
  • Bringing speakers to touch up on new ideas and technologies
  • The potentials to move from cell lines to tissues and living organisms
  • The real connections to physiology and disease

What’s on the horizon, Session II

  • Emerging techniques: giving visibility to the on-the-horizon/under development technologies
  • Nuclear organization at single-cell level in a tissue
  • Multi-omics, releasing the power of multiple omics methods by joint inference

4DN updates

  • Latest research progresses from funded groups and centers

Abstract presentation format

There are two abstract-based presentation format options for the 2019 4DN-ASCB Satellite Meeting:

  • Abstract selected talk (8 min talk + 2 min Q&A)
  • Poster presentation

You must submit by the registration deadline, October 15, to be considered for a talk or poster presentation. No late submission will be considered. Authors selected for oral presentations will be notified by November 1, 2019.

Abstract and poster guidelines

Abstract submission

  • Upload your abstract using the registration site
  • The abstract has to be in PDF format
  • No more than 2000 characters in length (excluding title, authors and affiliations)
  • It may contain a single figure at the end if it is strictly necessary for understanding (note that the figure will not be reported in the abstract booklet)
  • Follow this abstract template (structure and font) when you upload your abstract


  • Poster size must be no larger than 48" wide x 36" high
  • All text on the poster should be in font size no smaller than 16 pt and must be visible from a distance of about 2-3 feet
  • Illustrations and photos should contain caption

Due to space limitations, we will be able to accommodate only the first 120 abstracts submitted for poster presentation. Beyond that number, poster space is not guaranteed.
