AACR Special Conference: Pediatric Hematologic Malignancies


The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) has made the difficult decision to postpone the Pediatric Hematologic Malignancies Special Conference, scheduled for February 19-22, 2023, in New Orleans, Louisiana. Please note that this postponement applies to this meeting and does not apply to other planned AACR events.  

We recognize that the new data, exchange of information, and opportunities for collaboration offered by this meeting are highly valued by the cancer research community, and we are working to reschedule the meeting. Information on the rescheduled program will be sent by email and posted on once it is available.  

  • If you submitted an abstract, please be advised that the abstracts that were submitted to the meeting will not be published as originally scheduled.  We encourage authors to submit an updated abstract once submission opens for the new meeting dates.  If you have any questions, please email [email protected]
  • If you registered for the meeting, the AACR would issue a refund in the manner in which it was received. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected]
  • If you have a room reservation at the Hyatt Regency, your cancellation will be accepted at no charge four (4) days in advance of your scheduled check-in date; please contact the hotel at (504)561-1234 to cancel your reservation as soon as possible.  
  • If you booked a flight to New Orleans, many airlines have adjusted their rebooking and cancellation policies since the COVID-19 pandemic. Please contact your airline or booking agent directly to cancel your travel to New Orleans.
