At the time of the Scientific Program Committee’s initial review of Late-breaking Abstracts (submitted by the February 2 deadline), two decisions are possible:
• Potential presentation at an Oral Abstract Session or Poster Discussion Session
At the time of the Committee’s review of updated Late-breaking Abstracts (after the April 1 deadline), three decisions are possible:
• Presentation at an Oral Abstract Session or Poster Discussion Session
• Online publication only in association with the content of the 2011 ASCO Annual Meeting Proceedings
Note that a decision regarding potential presentation does not guarantee that the abstract will be selected for presentation or publication after review of updated data. Final decisions regarding the selection of Late-breaking Abstracts will be made after April 1.
First Authors of Late-breaking Abstracts have an opportunity to request that the abstract be withdrawn if the Committee deems it acceptable for online publication only.
