PRESENTATION OF ABSTRACTS
Because the Proceedings of the AACR was intended to represent a summary of all of the abstract presentations at the Annual Meeting, every abstract that was accepted for publication in the Proceedings of the AACR had to be presented at the meeting. Specifically, the author listed as the presenter for an abstract was required to attend the session in which the abstract was scheduled to discuss in detail the research outlined in the published abstract, according to the specific guidelines of the session. If, due to unforeseen circumstances, the designated presenter was unavailable to attend the session to present the abstract, he or she had to contact the AACR Program Development Department to designate a co-author to serve as the presenter. If no authors were available to present the abstract, the presenter was required to withdraw the abstract immediately by contacting the AACR Program Development Department. Failure to comply with these regulations pertaining to abstract presentation may result in actions including:
- The withdrawal of the abstract from the session;
- The removal of the abstract from the online Proceedings;
- The loss of future sponsorship privileges for the sponsor of the abstract;
- The loss of future abstract submission/authorship privileges for the presenter of the abstract.
DEADLINE FOR WITHDRAWAL OF ABSTRACTS
Requests to withdraw abstracts were accepted until Friday, January 25. Requests to withdraw late-breaking abstracts were accepted through Wednesday, March 6. Withdrawal requests had to be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and had to include the abstract control number and title as well as an explanation of the reason for withdrawal.
