Bursary applications and abstract submissions for the AORTIC 2013 conference are now being accepted. The deadline for both is 18 June 2013 and applicants and authors will be notified of the outcome in July 2013.
The AORTIC 2013 Organising Committee is pleased to present a bursary process with the goal of providing financial support for conference participants. Assistance of between USD $300 and $500 cash (in the current South African Rand equivalent) will be provided to successful applicants on-site at the conference.

  • Bursary funding is dependent on the success of conference fundraising efforts.
  • Submission of a bursary application represents no guarantee that funding will be given.
  • Preference will be given to presenters of accepted abstracts and Africa-based applicants.

AORTIC 2013 will be an excellent opportunity to present and discuss your research in a multidisciplinary forum of cancer experts. You are invited to submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation; download the abstract specifications here. The deadline for submissions is 18 June 2013.
The AORTIC 2013 programme will comprise a mix of Keynote, Plenary, Workshop, Symposia and Poster sessions. An accepted abstract will be presented orally or as a poster.
Oral abstracts will be grouped by topic and presented in the Free Communication of Abstracts sessions. Presenters will have 8 minutes for presentation followed by 2 minutes for discussion.
Authors chosen for a poster session will be given a full day to display their poster. Posters will be displayed in the common area of the conference venue, where refreshments will be served and the exhibition staged.
While effort will be made to accommodate author preference in presentation format (oral or poster), the final decision will rest with the Scientific Programme Committee. All accepted abstracts will be published in the electronic conference proceedings and will be available on the conference website.
