Trial in Progress abstracts

Trial in Progress (TiP) abstracts in all phases of clinical research (phases I to III) may be submitted to the MAP 2021 Virtual Congress.

It is expected that abstracts submitted as Trial in Progress are ongoing trials that have not reached any protocol-specified endpoints for analysis and consequently will only require the completion of two (2) sections:

  • Background
  • Trial design


  • Recruitment must have already begun or have been completed by the abstract submission deadline of Wednesday, 28 July 2021.
  • Abstracts including results or preliminary data will be rejected.
  • Trial in Progress abstracts will be accepted for Poster outcome only.
  • Encore TiP abstracts will NOT be accepted.

Abstracts will be reviewed by the MAP 2021 Virtual Scientific Committee and considered on the merits of the scientific and clinical rationale of the trial.

Publication schedule for accepted abstracts

Abstracts accepted for presentation during MAP 2021 Virtual (Proffered Paper/Mini Oral and Poster) and for publication in the MAP 2021 Virtual Abstract Book, will be published online on the MAP 2021 Virtual Website on Monday, 4 October 2021.
