We recognise that some rapidly advancing investigations may include results that will not be available at the time of the abstract submission deadline of Sunday 5th November 2017. Therefore “Late Breaking” abstracts will be accepted between Monday 11 December 2017 and 9:00am GMT on Wednesday 3 January 2018.
Abstracts submitted during this time must adhere to the abstract submission guidance outlined in the original call for papers. In addition, “Late Breaking” abstracts must present new data with major impact on the respective topic and it must be made clear in the abstract or through correspondence with the scientific review committee that the data has only just become available rather than that the original deadline was missed by the authors.
If there is any doubt that the abstract represents recently available results the decision to review and / or accept the abstract lies with the scientific review committee.
It is anticipated that authors will know in advance that results are still emerging and that they are not in a position to submit the abstract during the main call for papers. If authors expect the results to be of sufficient interest to the delegates attending the conference to warrant late submission, then they are advised to contact the scientific review committee as soon as possible.
Abstracts submitted during the “Late Breaking” call may still be eligible for oral presentation. Authors should therefore indicate whether they have a preference for oral or poster presentation.
Anyone who wishes to liaise with the scientific review committee should, in the first instance, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
First authors will be notified of the outcome review by the scientific review committee by email no later than Wednesday 10th January 2018.
First authors must confirm acceptance by booking online no later than Monday 22nd January 2018.
