** Late Breaking Abstract Submission will open after the Regular Submission closes and will occur from June 1st until July 6th, 2021. The Late Breaking Abstract Submission is not an extension of the Regular Submission deadline and will be available for Clinical Trials Topics only! Submission will include a free text box under the description section and a request to explain what is novel about the new data and why the new analyses should be considered as late breaking. The content of the abstract should not have been previously published or presented at national or international meetings prior to ESOC 2021.

Important please read:

The ongoing trials topic – is only for proposed posters that will describe the design and/or progress of ongoing trials – trials that will not have closed in time to present results at ESOC 2021, (September 1-3).

Note: Abstracts that describe as yet unfinished trials that will complete in time to present results at ESOC 2021 and that are intended as placeholder abstracts for late-breaking results should be submitted to the main abstract submission, under the most relevant trial topic. There, you will find an option to indicate that it is a placeholder abstract.

Results of clinical trials that will complete after this deadline (but in time to release results in a late-breaking session) can be submitted to the late breaking trials section. This section is open from 1 June 2021 to 6 July 2021. If you anticipate having a late-breaking trial, you are encouraged to submit a placeholder abstract now to the regular system. This abstract can describe the trial and the analyses that will be available. This will assist the conference committee in reserving a suitable slot on the programme and you can update your abstract with results during the late breaking submission window.
