Late-Breaking Abstracts

Late-Breaking Abstracts (LBA)

Late-breaking abstracts (LBA) may be submitted for high quality, new research findings with implications for clinical practice or understanding of disease processes. Researchers with well-designed, high impact trials would be candidates for late-breaking abstracts even if the results are negative.

If a submitter wishes to submit an late-breaking abstract, a skeleton abstract indicating the type of data that will be available by the late-breaking abstract deadline must be submitted online by Tuesday, May 15, 2018 (11:59 PST). Please note that accepted late-breaking abstracts will be notified by Friday, June 1, 2018.

The skeleton abstract will need to describe the type of data that will be submitted by the late-breaking data submission deadline, indicating the primary clinical endpoint for analysis, planned statistical plan for analysis, and date of planned analysis.

Submitters of preliminary versions receiving approval to proceed must submit the final late-breaking abstract by Monday, July 23, 2018 (11:59 PST).

Late-Breaking Abstract Structure

  • Background
  • Methods
  • Results – please indicate ‘Results not yet available’ as a placeholder in this text field
  • Conclusion – please indicate ‘Conclusion not yet available’ as a placeholder in this text field

Step 1. Title & Topic

  • The abstract title must not exceed 150 characters in length; this includes spaces.

Step 2. Authors

  • The presenting author of an accepted abstract must be registered for the ISDE Congress by August 20, 2018
  • There is no limit to the number of co-authors per abstract
  • Financial Disclosure information needs to be completed for EACH co-author at the time of submission through the online abstract submission form; however, information can be provided by the submitting author
  • The submitter can view the status of co-author disclosures by clicking on ‘Authors’ sections of the abstract. Those with incomplete disclosures are denoted in red
  • If you would like an assistant or other person to receive notifications regarding the status of an abstract, please enter their email address on the text field provided below the list of co-authors
  • Please note your preferred presentation format. If you would not be comfortable giving an oral presentation, please select Poster Only. NOTE: Selecting Poster/Oral does not guarantee you will be assigned an oral abstract presentation upon acceptance; the final presentation type is determined by the International Scientific Abstract Review Committee
  • Author and institution information must NOT be included in the body of the abstract.  The inclusion of either of these in the body of the abstract will result in rejection of the abstract
  • The presenting author must have registered for ISDE 2018 at the time of initial abstract submission

Step 3. Disclosure

ALL abstract co-authors are expected to disclose to the program audience any/all relevant financial relationships related to the content of their presentation. Kindly note that all disclosures can be submitted by the submitter on behalf of the co-authors. The submitter will NOT be able to finish the abstract submission process without the disclosures of all co-authors. Please see below list of disclosure questions that will be asked during the abstract submission process.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per CME guidelines, industry employees cannot present an abstract if the content of the abstract relates to business lines or products of their employer.

Step 4. Abstract Text

  • Do not include title or author data in the body of your abstract as there are specific places for title and author (steps 1 & 2)
  • Author and institution information must NOT be included in the body of the abstract.  The inclusion of either of these will result in rejection of the abstract.
  • Abstracts may be entered directly into the site or copied and pasted
  • Research work should be original and innovative. Work can be presented prior to ISDE 2018, but MUST include new information/data
  • Abstracts must not exceed 350 words in length (not including title and authors)
  • A maximum of 1 table may be included and will count as 100 words
