If accepted, cancellations by 19 September 2022 will be refunded less 50% of the registration fee; no refunds will be provided after 19 September 2022.


Abstracts are accepted exclusively through your personal mySHVM area; you will need to to have an account to have access to the latter. Signing up for an account does not require an immediate payment. However, please note that all submitted abstracts will be discarded if payment is not received by 12 August 2022.

The abstract submission deadline is 20 July 2022. The Scientific Committee will then review the received abstracts for inclusion in the scientific programme in one of the following formats:

  • Short oral communications
    Selected abstracts will be presented during specific symposia as deemed appropriate by the organising committee.
  • Poster presentations
    Posters will be displayed throughout the meeting, with ample opportunity for presentation and discussion.

Abstract format

  • The title must start in uppercase and continue in lowercase, except for conventional terms (ATP, DNA, NFκB, etc). Example:
       This title is written correctly
       This Title is Not Properly Written
  • If more than one author (but only in that case), underline your name (the presenting author, in whatever position you appear in the author list) and use commas to separate the names; do not use 'and' before the last author. The presenting author's first name(s) and surname should be written in full; for all other authors, write first name(s) as initials and surname in full. If more than one affiliation (but only in that case), use sequential superscript numbers to identify each institution. Example:
       Mario Rossi1, J. Doe2, F. Bloggs1,2
       1Dept Biomembranes, Golgi & Veratti Univ., Pavia, Italy
       2Dept Bioblast Analyses, Altmann Univ., Leipzig, Germany
  • The abstract text must be no longer than 1350 characters, spaces included. The text should include the following sections: Rationale, Objective, Methods, Results, Conclusion.

NEW additional format

All attendees who submit an abstract are strongly encouraged to submit also a 1-minute video promoting the abstract. There are no fixed guidelines for this video: it should be a “visiting card” of the results that you will be presenting, trying to attract other participants to discuss the work further with you during the meeting itself. The method and deadline for uploading this video will be provided through your mySHVM area.

"William C. Stanley" Early Investigator Award

The "William C. Stanley" Early Investigator Award (EIA) highlights the scientific accomplishments of promising young researchers and is a major focus of the Annual Meeting of the Society for Heart and Vascular Metabolism.

As in previous years, entrants for the EIA competition should be either students or postdoctoral fellows (postdocs or clinical fellows with over 6 years experience are not eligible for the competition). Previous winners of the "William C. Stanley" Early Investigator Award (or its precursor, termed "Early Investigator Commendation") are also not eligible for this competition.

The EIA competition format was redesigned and, since last year, you do not have to specifically sign up for the award. The organisers will automatically select videos (see “New format” section above) submitted by eligible junior participants and enter them into this year’s EIA competition. In other words, whereas the 1-min video is only encouraged (but not mandatory) for everyone submitting an abstract, if you wish to be included in the EIA competition you must submit a video.

The organisers will select four winners for the EIA, based on the abstract and the 1-minute video submitted by eligible candidates. For each winner, the registration fee will be waived and a personal check of 250 USD will be issued. The winners will present their work in a dedicated session (see the Programme, 18 October).


English is the official language for the meeting.


Accommodation for all SHVM participants will be at the Walkerhill (177 Walkerhill-ro, Gwangjin-gu, Seoul, 04963, Korea) which will also be the conference venue (see the venue section). Payment for your accommodation is not included in the registration fee: you will be responsible for booking your room directly and for its payment (most major credit cards are accepted).

The Organisers have secured preferential room rates for all SHVM participants. To make your reservations, you will have access to a dedicated link through your personal mySHVM area after signing up for the meeting.


Unfortunately, there is an increasing number of fraudulent websites and email promotions claiming to offer registration and accommodation services. Please be advised that payment for your SHVM 2022 attendance can only be processed through this website, within your personal mySHVM area, after you sign up for an account. Also, the SHVM 2022 Organisers have secured preferential rates only with the hotel mentioned above (using the method indicated) and are in no way responsible for arrangements that you make. Please be aware of possible scams.

Hike to the top and enjoy the refreshing air along with the stunning scenery.

Gyeongbokgung Palace

SHVM participants will be taken by bus from Walkerhill Hotel to Gyeongbokgung Palace at 14:00 on Monday. A guide will provide a palace tour lasting approximately 2.5 hours. At the end of the tour, participants will move to Korean BBQ restaurants near the palace for dinner. Following the meal, participants can either return to the hotel by bus or do what they choose for the rest of the night.

Gyeongbokgung Palace

Gyeongbokgung Palace was the first and largest of the royal palaces built during the Joseon Dynasty. Built in 1395, Gyeongbokgung Palace was located at the heart of the newly appointed capital of Seoul (then known as Hanyang) and represented the sovereignty of the Joseon Dynasty. The largest of the Five Grand Palaces (the others being Gyeonghuigung Palace, Deoksugung Palace, Changgyeonggung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace), Gyeongbokgung served as the main palace of the Joseon Dynasty. The Korean government has invested much time and effort into rebuilding, restoring, and maintaining the palace for future generations. Visitors to Gyeongbokgung can also visit the National Palace Museum of Korea and the National Folk Museum of Korea as they are located on the palace grounds.
