Guidelines for Abstracts

The Cohort Consortium Steering Committee encourages every Cohort Consortium Working Group/Project to submit abstracts for poster presentation. Posters are a great way to share information about Working Groups/Projects and their findings since it is not possible for plenary sessions at the annual meeting to include an update of all the activities of the many Working Groups/Projects. Abstracts are also accepted from individual investigators, research fellows, students, and NCI staff interested in sharing findings, information about methodologic studies and tools, and other topics likely to be of interest to the Cohort Consortium membership.

There will be awards for the Best Student/Fellow Poster and Best Overall Poster. Authors who submit abstracts by September 6 will be notified of acceptance by September 15. Those who submit after September 6 will be notified of acceptance by October 21. Abstracts that are accepted for poster presentation will be included in the meeting packets for all meeting participants.

The deadline for submission is Friday, September 6, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. EDT.

All abstracts MUST include—
