Welcome to the IGES 2023 Abstract Submission portal!  

The 2023 IGES Annual Meeting will take place November 5-8 in Nashville, TN. We invite the scientific community to share their insight and knowledge to keep us connected, informed and further our goal of solving complex scientific problems in genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics.

We are now accepting abstracts for consideration to the 2023 Annual Meeting. After a rigorous peer review process, accepted abstracts will be selected as either a platform presentation, poster highlight or poster presentation and will be  published late fall in Genetic Epidemiology. All accepted abstracts must be presented in-person at the Annual Meeting.

We welcome abstracts in all areas of genetic epidemiology, including

  • Biobanks and large-scale populations
  • Common disease genetics (incl. cancer genetics, heart disease genetics)
  • Diversity and studies of multiple ancestries
  • Immunogenetics (incl. COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2)
  • Statistical modeling, machine learning and data science methods in genetic epidemiology
  • Mendelian randomization and causality
  • OMICs: methods and applications
  • Polygenic risk scores and prediction (and general polygenic trait genetics)
  • Whole genome and exome sequencing studies

Abstracts should follow the same format as in previous year’s published abstract booklet and should be submitted as a Word file (.doc, .docx, .rtf).  (See:
