AACR-NCI-EORTC International Conference on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics

Abstracts 

Regular abstracts are no longer being accepted for this conference. The regular abstract submission deadline was Monday, July 22, 2019. All abstracts submitted by the Monday, July 22 deadline will be considered for poster presentation. Additionally, oral presentations of highly rated abstracts will be integrated within thematic sessions.

Deadline for Withdrawal of Abstracts. The AACR cannot comply with any request for withdrawal of an abstract that will delay the publication of the Program. However, requests to withdraw abstracts will be accepted through Sunday, Sept. 1, 2019. Withdrawal requests must be sent by email to abstractchanges@aacr.org. Withdrawal requests must include the abstract control number and title as well as an explanation of the reason for withdrawal.

Late-Breaking Abstract Submission Process. Abstracts detailing highly significant and timely findings in any area of molecular targets and cancer therapeutics that were not available at the time of the regular abstract deadline will be considered for both oral and poster presentation at the 2019 AACR-NCI-EORTC Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics conference. Only those abstracts that are deemed to be of high scientific priority will be accepted. All stakeholders, including members of industry, are encouraged to submit late-breaking abstracts.

Late-breaking abstract submission will open on Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2019 and close at 11:59 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time on Thursday, Sept. 12, 2019. Late-breaking abstracts must be submitted using the AACR Online Abstract Submission System over these dates only.

A special subcommittee of the Scientific Committee will evaluate the merit of late-breaking abstracts.

The AACR cannot comply with any request for withdrawal of a late-breaking abstract that will delay the publication of the Program. However, requests to withdraw abstracts will be accepted through Friday, Sept. 27, 2019. Withdrawal requests must be sent by email to abstractchanges@aacr.org. Withdrawal requests must include the abstract control number and title as well as an explanation of the reason for withdrawal. 

Presentation of Abstracts and Late-Breaking Abstracts. Every abstract and late-breaking abstract that has been accepted for publication in the online Proceedings must also be presented at the meeting. Specifically, the author listed as the presenter must register for the meeting and attend the session in which the abstract is 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 is unavailable to attend the session to present the abstract, he or she must contact the AACR Program Development Department at 215-440-9300 or abstractchanges@aacr.org to designate a co-author to serve as the presenter. If no authors are available to present the abstract, the presenter must withdraw the abstract by submitting a withdrawal request by email to abstractchanges@aacr.org. Withdrawal requests must include the abstract control number and title as well as an explanation of the reason for withdrawal.

Failure to comply with these regulations pertaining to abstract presentation may result in actions including, but not limited to:
  • The withdrawal of the abstract or late-breaking abstract from the session
  • The removal of the abstract or late-breaking abstract from the online Proceedings
  • The loss of future abstract or late-breaking abstract submission/authorship privileges for the presenter of the abstract or or late-breaking abstract

Opportunities for Short Talks from Abstracts and Late-Breaking Abstracts. A subcommittee of the Scientific Committee will evaluate highly rated regular and late-breaking abstracts and, where thematically appropriate, invite authors to present a short talk during the program. All accepted abstracts are eligible. Not all sessions will include short talks.

Release Date for Abstracts and Late-Breaking Abstracts. All accepted abstracts are scheduled to be posted online via the online planner and app on Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2019 (with the exception of those abstracts and late-breaking abstracts selected for inclusion in the AACR press program). Accepted late-breaking abstracts will be posted on Friday, Oct. 25. Abstracts will not be available before these dates.
