ESMO 2014: Abstracts

Abstract outcome notifications

Abstract and travel grant outcome notifications were sent via e-mail to the first and presenting authors in early-July 2014.

Late-breaking abstracts

Authors receiving a positive outcome for the preliminary submission will be granted online access to the placeholder record in order to upload the final version of the abstract by the late-breaking abstract deadline 20 August 2014 (23:59 Central European Summer Time).

The ESMO 2014 Scientific Committee will re-consider the final abstract to determine whether it will be accepted as a late-breaking abstract for ESMO 2014. A decision will be made between the following three options:

  • Accepted for oral presentation: Accepted late-breaking abstracts will be presented orally in a Proffered Paper session or in a Presidential Symposium.
  • Accepted for Poster Discussion: Presentation during a Poster Discussion session
  • Rejected: Late-breaking submitted abstracts that do not meet the criteria for oral presentation will not be accepted for presentation during the Congress and will not be published.

The presenters of accepted late-breaking abstracts will receive notification and further instructions by early-September 2014.

All accepted abstracts will be published in the Congress Abstract Book (online and USB only), a supplement of Annals of Oncology.
