The final decision on the presentation format of all selected abstracts lies at the sole discretion of the Scientific Committee.

Abstracts submitted after the stipulated deadline will not be considered.

Authors are strongly advised to submit prior to the deadline and avoid unnecessary delays which may affect the standing of their abstract.

The copyright of the abstract(s) are retained by the author(s). However, the author(s) give permission to the EBC Council to print the abstract(s) in the EJC as well as on the EBCC-12 website.

Submitting an abstract for presentation in the EBCC-12 does not constitute registration for the conference. When selected, abstract presenters must register to attend the European Breast Cancer Conference in Barcelona.

The following presentation formats are applicable at the EBCC-12:

Oral presentation

The abstract is selected for oral presentation in one of the Clinical Science Symposia and/or Proffered Paper session. Abstracts of superior quality can be selected for presentation in a session where discussants will place the research findings into perspective.

Poster Spotlight Sessions

The Scientific Committee will make a special selection of posters which will be highlighted through short oral presentations followed by moderated discussion. These sessions will facilitate dynamic exchange on selected findings of broad interest.

Poster Presentation

Abstracts that have been selected for poster presentation will be displayed on poster boards in a prominent poster viewing area.  The posters will be grouped by topic and displayed for one day.  A specific time will be devoted to poster viewing to ensure delegates have sufficient opportunity to acquaint themselves with the presented data.
