Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the International Neurotoxin Association (INA) and its Conference Organizing Committee, I am pleased to announce the next conference – TOXINS 2015: Basic Science and Clinical Aspects of Botulinum and Other Neurotoxins. The conference will be held January 14-17, 2015 in Lisbon, Portugal.

TOXINS 2012 was a resounding success – with 547 attendees representing 35 countries. We are proud to announce that the TOXINS 2012 keynote speaker, James E. Rothman, MD, PhD, received the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine (jointly with Randy W. Schekman, PhD, and Thomas C. Südhof, MD),”for their discoveries of machinery regulating vesicle traffic, a major transport system in our cells”, from the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet.

The abstracts from the Conference were published in the issue of The Botulinum Journal. 2013; 2(3/4)

The TOXINS 2015 scientific program will feature cutting edge plenary sessions, basic science and clinical didactic tracks, poster sessions, and a number of practical workshops. The program will be of interest to basic scientists and clinicians in the fields of neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, urology, dermatology, gastroenterology, and pain management.

I look forward to sharing more details of the conference with you in the near future, and hope you will join us in Lisbon for TOXINS 2015.

Regards,

Mark Hallett, MD
Chairman
TOXINS 2015 Organizing Committee

New Abstract Topic

International Forum: Exploring the National, Regional, and Local Clinical Experience With Botulinum Neurotoxins

In recognition of the country-specific and/or institution-specific differences in the use of BoNTs in clinical practice, this session is designed for clinicians and research scientists to share their experience and insights with global colleagues. A session format combining presentations and a panel discussion will identify and explore these differences in the clinical application of BoNTs relating to: patient populations, treatment protocols, best practices for common indications, pharmacoeconomic considerations, and data for the use of BoNT therapy in innovative ways.

Group Accommodations Cancellation Policy:

In the event of cancellation of accommodation, the Purchaser may cancel the contracted hotel rooms with no charge up to 180 days prior to arrival.

This is considered the latest allowed date for timely cancellations free of charge. Significant modifications to the booking may result in a re-evaluation of rates and conditions offered.

After this date (180 days) no more than 50% of the reserved rooms per day can be cancelled.

Please note, that in order to cancel the maximum of 50% allowed, the cancellation should occur during period 1 (see below). The original reservation is defined as all rooms (inclusive of VAT) reserved and confirmed on the date stipulated as the last allowed for cancellations.

Period 1: 179-120 days prior to arrival a maximum of 50% of the original reservation per day may be cancelled with no charge.

Period 2: 119-90 days prior to arrival a maximum of 35% of the original reservation per day may be cancelled with no charge.

Example: If a total of 35% or more has already been cancelled during period 1, it will not be possible to make any further changes or reductions without incurring a charge. If, for example, 15% has been cancelled during period 1, it is possible to cancel additional 20% during period 2, so the total cancellation does not exceed 35% of the final reserved event.

Period 3: During the period of 89- 60 days prior to arrival a maximum of 10% of the final reservation per day may be cancelled with no charge.

Example: If a total of 10% or more has already been cancelled during period 1 and 2, it will not be possible to make any further changes or reduction without incurring a charge s. If, for example, 5% has been cancelled during period 1 and 2, it is possible to cancel additional 5% during period 3, so the total cancellation does not exceed 10% of the final reserved event.

Period 4: During the period of 59-20 days prior to arrival a maximum of 5% of the final reservation per day may be cancelled with no charge.

Example: If a total of 5% or more has already been cancelled during period 1, 2 and 3, it will not be possible to make any further changes or reductions without incurring a charge. If, for example, 2% has been cancelled during period 1, 2 and 3, it is possible to cancel additional 3% during period 4, so the total cancellation does not exceed 5% of the final reserved event.

After period 4, cancelled room nights will be subject to a 100% charge, equivalent to the full value, including any applicable VAT.

In the case of no-shows, delayed arrival or early departure the hotel is entitled to payment equivalent to the full price of the original reservation (all nights) as booked.

All changes and amendments by the client have to be confirmed in writing by the Hotel to be validated.

A contract addendum will be sent and should be signed by client for any changes above original contracted room booking.

General Guidelines for Abstract Review

Eligible abstracts should present original research on the science of botulinum neurotoxins or their clinical application. Abstracts should be current and of broad interest and importance to those engaged in the field of botulinum neurotoxin research and therapeutics.

Each abstract should be concise and factual. An abstract should briefly state the purpose of the research, the principal results, and major conclusions. Abstracts must be submitted in English.

All abstract(s) should be unbranded; generic names should be used after first mention of product brand names.

Financial support of the research being submitted in the abstract should be indicated if applicable.

Both structured and unstructured abstracts are acceptable. Other (unstructured) abstracts will not follow this format but should contain the same information.

Structured abstracts should be formatted as follows:

• Abstract title
• Authors’ names and affiliations
• Corresponding author contact information

Introduction
This section should briefly state the precise objectives of the research or study question and explanatory background.

Methods
The experimental methodology should be clearly described.

Results
Results should be clear and concise. The main outcomes of the study should be reported and quantified.
