Late-breaking abstracts recognize novel, critically important research developments that occur during the lead-up to the AOPMC.
Late-breaking abstract submission details will be available closer to the next event in 2025
Late-Breaking Abstracts will only be considered for presentation and publication at the AOPMC if they fulfill the following criteria:
- The topic must be of critical importance to the clinical/scientific community and/or the public
- The abstract must be report data that became available for public dissemination only after the deadline of the regular abstract submission, and has not been previously published or presented.
- The study and results reported should be novel (not simply an extension of previously published work) or be definitive of confirming or refuting other critically important work.
- The following categories are typically suited to the main poster sessions and will not be considered for Late-Breaking Abstracts: case reports, qualitative surveys, reviews of existing treatments, practice reviews, rating scale validation, small confirmatory studies, small scale epidemiology studies, research proposals.
- The Late-Breaking Abstract program is not designed to favor investigators who inadvertently missed the deadline for regular abstract submission.
If your abstract is accepted, you (or a registered co-author or colleague) are highly encouraged to:
- Travel to the AOPMC to present your abstract as a printed poster
- Present your poster according to the scheduled presentation dates/time
- Abstract presentation dates/times are subject to change; therefore it is advisable to plan to attend the AOPMC in its entirety
