Late-breaking abstracts (LBA)
Late-breaking abstracts may be submitted for high quality, new research findings from randomised phase II or phase III trials with implications for clinical practice or understanding of disease processes.
The final late-breaking abstract deadline of 01 March 2023 is under no circumstances to be considered as an extension of the general submission deadline.
Trial in progress abstracts
Trial in Progress (TiP) abstracts in all phases of clinical research (phases I to III) may be submitted to ELCC 2023.
It is expected that abstracts submitted as Trial in Progress are ongoing trials that have not reached any protocol-specified endpoints for analysis.
Presentation and publication of accepted abstracts
The ELCC 2023 Scientific Committee will select abstracts for presentation during the Congress based on the following possibilities:
- Proffered Paper: Oral presentation of original data of superior quality, followed by expert discussion and perspectives
- Mini Oral: Short oral presentation of good quality data, followed by expert discussion and perspectives.
- Poster: Display session for review, discussion and questions. The presenting authors must be available for Q&A to represent their work.
All accepted abstracts will be published in the ELCC 2023 Abstract book, a supplement to the official IASLC journal, Journal of Thoracic Oncology.
Publication schedule for accepted abstracts
Details regarding the publication of accepted abstracts are available here.
