Abstract Submission Deadline: Monday, March 12, 11:59 p.m. ET

Individuals interested in submitting an abstract for presentation during the conference must do so through the NEW AACR Online Submission System below.

Log onto myAACR. If you are an AACR member, please use your AACR username and password. If you have forgotten either, you can look it up on the website by entering your Member ID. For non-AACR members, you will need to create a free myAACR account to submit your abstract.

Note: This is free and the account is not for membership to the AACR, only to submit your abstract.

Once logged on, click "Abstracts" to be directed to the NEW AACR Online Submission System. Click "View All Activities" to find the 2018 Cancer Dormancy and Residual Disease Abstracts where you can create your submission(s). Click the "Create Submissions" button to begin. Abstract submissions will only be accepted electronically; paper abstracts will not be accepted.

Only those abstracts that have been reviewed and selected by the Conference Cochairs may be presented. Please be sure to carefully check your abstract for content errors, spelling, names, etc. before submitting. The AACR does not proofread for or correct spelling, typographical, grammatical, or scientific errors, nor can changes be made once the abstract is submitted.
