Abstract Submission is now closed. The deadline to submit oral abstracts was March 21. The deadline to submit poster abstracts was May 16. 

Thank you for your interest in presenting. The contribution of presenters is critical and we value your input greatly. 
Scientists in academia, government, industry and others working in the field of metabolomics are invited to submit abstracts in the following scientific themes:

  • Metabolomics in Health and Disease
  • Plants, Food, Environment and Microbes
  • Technology Advancements
  • Computational Metabolomics, Statistics & Bioinformatics

All abstracts submitted to the conference will go through peer-review and will be selected by the Metabolomics 2022 Conference Committee. In order to ensure a diverse range of contributions each participant may only submit one abstract as "presenting author" while participants may be listed as co-authors on multiple abstracts. You'll be asked to select a theme and sub-topic from the list below.

Abstract Guidelines

Abstract titles should be short, but descriptive. Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words. The submitting author will receive an email message confirming receipt of the abstract and will be responsible for notifying all co-authors of the submission.


Peer-review Procedures and Deadlines

  • Oral abstract submission deadline was March 21, 2022.
  • Poster abstract submission deadline is May 16, 2022.
  • All abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee.
  • Abstracts constituting sales pitches for products or services will not be considered.
  • Announcements of selected abstracts will be made early-May, 2022.
  • All presenters must register as a participant at the conference. Oral presenters must register (and pay) by May 25, 2022 and poster presenters must register (and pay) by June 1, 2022.
  • Complete instructions for oral and poster presentations will be provided upon notification of acceptance.
  • Posters will be available to view online 2 weeks prior to the conference.

Abstract Scoring

The Committee has clear criteria for reviewing and scoring each abstract. You can view the guidelines and rubric below. Keep in mind that all abstracts must be relevant to the Metabolomics Society conference and cannot contain obvious marketing content. 


EMN Award 2022

The 2022 EMN Award aims at providing support to Early-Career scientists to attend and actively participate in the 18th International Conference of the Metabolomics Society that will promote their professional development. The Metabolomics Society strives to promote diversity, inclusion, equality, therefore we encourage applications from low- and middle-income countries. Decisions will be communicated to all applicants over email by May 23rd, 2022, and winners will be announced on the Metabolomics Society website and social media platforms and in the MetaboNews newsletter.
