Abstract Submission and Selection Procedures

Abstract Submission Procedure

Abstracts can only be submitted online. Abstracts submitted by regular mail, fax or e-mail will not be allowed.

The abstract submission system will be accessible on the congress website.

Step-by-step instructions will be provided within the submission system. Submitters can edit their abstracts until the deadline.

An e-mail confirming receipt of the abstract submitted online will be sent to the presenting author within 48 hours. An abstract number will be allocated and should be mentioned for any queries relating to the submitted abstract.

Note: Submitting an abstract for presentation in the ECCO2017 European Cancer Congress does not constitute registration for the congress. Abstract presenters must register to attend the ECCO2017.

Abstract Selection Process

Abstracts submitted for presentation in the ECCO2017 will be reviewed by an international panel of experts in the field of the subject and will be judged solely on the data submitted. The final decision on the presentation format of all selected abstracts lies at the sole discretion of the Scientific Committee.

The following presentation formats are applicable at the ECCO2017 European Cancer Congress.
Oral presentation
The abstract is selected for oral presentation in one of the proffered papers sessions. Abstracts of superior quality can be selected for presentation in a session where discussants will place the research findings into perspective.

Poster Presentation
Abstracts that have been selected for poster presentation will be displayed on poster boards in a prominent poster viewing area next to the exhibition.  The posters will be grouped by topic and displayed for four hours each.  A specific time will be devoted to poster viewing to ensure delegates have sufficient opportunity to acquaint themselves with the presented data.

Poster Discussion
Prominent experts will provide a thematic overview and discuss the findings from selected abstracts chosen for poster presentation. Delegates will be offered an expert review-at-a-glance of the presented findings and will be able to further refine their interest in specific abstracts.

Poster Spotlight Sessions
The Scientific Committee will make a special selection of posters which will be highlighted through short oral presentations followed by moderated discussion. These sessions will facilitate dynamic exchange on selected findings of broad interest.

Abstract Withdrawal

ECCO cannot guarantee any request for withdrawal of an abstract that in any way delays the ECCO2017 publications. Requests to withdraw abstracts will be accepted until 31 October 2016.

If the presenting author of a selected abstract cannot attend, they should assign a replacement and inform ECCO of the replacement as soon as possible.

The presenting author will receive a letter with the result of the review and the Scientific Committee’s decision on the abstract by the end of October.
