Regular abstract submission is now closed. Notifications of acceptance or rejection were sent to all submitting authors by mid-April 2018.

Late breaker abstracts

Late Breaker abstract submission is open from 19 April to 10 May 2018 – 23:59 CET.

A small number of late breaker abstracts will be accepted to be presented orally or as posters at the conference. The percentage of abstracts selected as late breakers will depend on the number of submissions, and selection will be significantly more rigorous than for regular abstracts.

Late breaker submissions must present data gathered after the regular abstract submission deadline closes that is of unquestioned significance. Data analysed after the regular submission deadline (5 February, 2018) should not be submitted as late breaker research if the data does not meet a high threshold of scientific merit.

The same submission rules apply for the late breaker abstracts as for the regular abstracts, however each presenting author may only present ONE late breaker abstract at the conference. Submission guidelines are available here.

Final selection of late breaker abstracts will be done by members of the Scientific Programme Committee and notifications of acceptance or rejection of abstracts will be sent to the submitting author by early June 2018. It is the submitting author’s responsibility to inform all co-authors of the status of the abstract.
