Call for Abstracts

The AORTIC 2019 Scientific Programme Committee invites you to contribute to the programme by submitting an abstract for an oral or poster presentation. This international conference on cancer in Africa is an excellent opportunity to present and discuss your research in a multidisciplinary forum of cancer experts.

The Call for Abstracts will open on 29 January 2019 and close on 31 March 2019. Information on the Call for Abstracts will be made available closer to the time in English, French, and Portuguese.

Timeline

Accepted abstract

An accepted abstract will be presented as an oral or as a poster. Oral abstracts will be grouped by topic and presented in the Best Abstracts sessions. Authors will have eight minutes for presentation followed by two minutes for discussion. Authors chosen for a poster session will be given two days to display their poster, with a dedicated poster session.

While effort will be made to accommodate authors’ preferences in presentation format (oral or poster), the final decision will rest with the Scientific Programme Committee.

All accepted abstracts, whether for oral or poster presentation, will be published in the electronic conference proceedings.

Authors of accepted abstracts must register for the conference by 30 June 2019 or they will forfeit their place in the programme.
