Abstract Submission Topics

As the world's population ages, age related neurological disorders will continue to increase in numbers affected. Proteomics technologies will continue to play a central role in understanding how perturbations in protein modification, protein interactions and localization in the brain propagate disease states. This session will illuminate recent findings that hold promise for new therapeutic targets and biomarkers.

COVID-19 infections have changed the world as we know it, possibly permanently in several ways. Research on coronaviruses have in record time led to a great understanding of the biology and pathology of this modern day plague, including the developing of vaccines. Proteomics has been instrumental in our full understanding of this virus' mechanism. This session will highlight the latest proteomics research in this emergent area.

Single cell omics is taking a quantum leap to dissect biology at individual cell resolution. This session welcomes abstracts on emerging technologies and applications in single cell omics.

Precision Medicine is now entering an era that reaches beyond genomics. Pathology, in particular, is transforming to diagnose the precise and quantitative changes of proteins as the machines of life and disease. Proteome-based diagnostic pathology will address crucial clinical needs, and there is an urgent need to develop stringent, fit-for-purpose proteomic assays that can be implemented in the clinic for the benefit of patients. This session will discuss high-impact clinical areas that will be transformed by proteomics, and hopes to bring together physicians and scientists to drive this proteomic evolution of health care.

Proteomics data science has developed from an appendix of data generation to the centre stage, often requiring as much planning, time, and resources as the experimental component. This session will present current challenges and approaches, from proteogenomics to AI.

Compared to gene-centric measurements, proteomics accurately reflects the action, mechanism and effect of therapy. This session will highlight proteomics technologies to guide immuno-oncology, accelerate pharmaceutical research and development, and technological advancements in chemical proteomics.

A fundamental understanding of how proteins function in biology and disease requires a detailed characterization of their structures and the structural dynamics through protein interactions and post-translational modifications. This session will highlight emerging proteomics approaches to globally map protein structure alterations.

This session will focus on new technologies for proteomics, highlighting improved ways to handle challenging samples, cutting-edge approaches and instrumentation for sample analysis, and enhanced strategies for data processing. Presentations will include examples of biological and/or clinical applications that illustrate the performance of the new technology.

Proteomics is mature for system wide measurement and quantification of protein expression levels, but also for comprehensive analyses at the single cell level. This session will highlight and discuss the future of proteomics and what is the place of the technology in precision medicine and precision health.

Proteomics has led to discovery of new biomarkers in a wide range of diseases. This session welcomes abstracts on new technologies to accelerate detection and prediction of diseases, and assay development from discovery to clinical use.

For a complete understanding of a system's processes and each protein's role in health and disease, it is essential to study protein expression with a spatial resolution, as the exact location of proteins at tissue, cellular, or subcellular levels is tightly linked to protein function. This session highlights new discoveries and emerging efforts based on different spatial technologies.

    NOTE: Selecting oral format does not guarantee you will be assigned an oral presentation upon acceptance; the final presentation type will be determined by the Program Committee.

Step 2. Topic

  • Please select the topic that best suits your abstract.

Step 3. Authors and Affiliations

  • Designate the presenting author.
  • There is no limit to the number of co-authors per abstract.

Step 4. Abstract Text

  • The abstract body cannot exceed 300 words and must be input with the following headings:
    • Introduction
    • Methods
    • Results
    • Conclusions
    • (References optional)

            Student Poster Competition

Powered By:


  • Please indicate if you are a PhD or Masters student and wish to compete in the Student Poster Competition.
    RULES: Entrant must be a current PhD or Masters student who is presenting a poster during HUPO ReConnect 2021. Eight abstracts will be selected by a panel of judges to give oral presentations of five minutes each in a dedicated Student Competition session. Three winners will be selected; announcement of the winners will be made at the closing ceremony.

Step 5. Preview and Submit

  • Please proofread your abstract. Once submitted, you will not be able to make any changes.
  • A system-generated acknowledgement email with your abstract number will be sent to your registered email address. If you do not receive this email, please check your junk mail box before contacting us.
