Abstracts Submission Guidelines

  • Any questions regarding abstracts may be directed to ASTRO's Scientific Affairs Department at 703-839-7368.

    Abstract submissions are now open!

     *Important note: You MAY submit an abstract for this meeting which has been (or will be) submitted to another meeting!*


    1. An individual may submit more than one abstract.
    2. An abstract may only be submitted to the Workshop once. Duplicate abstracts (reporting the same data) that are submitted under a different author will not be considered. 
    3. Abstracts must be submitted online through the abstract submission process. No fax copies, disks or email submissions will be accepted. 
    4. Abstracts must be received by Friday, April 21, 2017, 11:59 p.m. Eastern time. Abstracts received after the deadline will not be eligible. 
    5. Abstract acceptance will be determined on a rolling basis. 
    6. Once an abstract has been selected for presentation, it may not be revised prior to publication in the meeting program. Typographical errors that do not affect the data presented or accidental omissions of co-authors are not reasons for changes to abstracts after selection. Please proof your abstracts carefully for formatting, spelling and grammar. Double check all sections of the abstract, i.e., title, authors, disclosures and abstract body. Material may be updated in your presentation and manuscript.
    7. The maximum character limit that includes the body of the abstract is 2,500 characters, including spaces.
    8. An abstract may not contain any illustrations, images, graphs or tables. The abstract must be formatted in text only for publication in the meeting program. Any abstract containing an image, graph or table will not be accepted for peer review. If selected, presenters may expand their abstract to include tables, graphs and images in poster presentation.
    9. Presenters should use product-based and generic names wherever possible. 
    10. All presenters are required to register and attend the meeting. 
    11. Submission of an abstract conveys permission to be printed in the workshop program book. 

    NOTE: If you require an expedited abstract review process for reimbursement purposes, please contact Tyler Beck after you've submitted your abstract.
