Abstracts are no longer being accepted for this conference. The late-breaking abstract submission deadline was Thursday, Sept. 12, 2019. All abstracts submitted by the Sept. 12 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 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
Guidelines for Creation, Hanging, and Removal of Posters. Poster boards will be 4 feet high and 8 feet across (1.22m x 2.44m); posters should be created in landscape format and should not exceed the dimensions of the boards. Presenters will have access to Hall D to place their posters 15 minutes before the session start time, must be available for questions at their assigned poster board for at least 90 minutes during their session, and must remove their posters at the conclusion of their session. The AACR will provide poster numbers and pushpins.

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.
