Abstract Program

 

Abstract Program

The Scientific Program Committee (SPC) invites researchers to submit abstracts for inclusion in the program. This is an excellent opportunity to showcase your research to an international audience. The detailed abstract submission terms & conditions are available here.

The abstract submission is now open. The deadline for submission will be March 1, 2017 (23:59 CET). Submit your abstract via the button on the right side of the page. 

Please note that the submission of an abstract constitutes a formal commitment by the presenting author to present the abstract (if accepted) orally or as a poster in the session and the time assigned by the Scientific Program Committee. We, therefore, recommend that submitters of abstracts register for the congress simultaneously with abstract submission.

The abstracts submitted via the regular submission process will be reviewed and allocated by the international panel of reviewers and the SPC. The authors will be informed about the allocation before April 30, 2017. Should you have any questions regarding the abstract submission or guidelines, please contact eha@mci-group.com.

Travel grants

Travel grants, consisting of € 500 and free registration for the Congress, will be available for investigators with accepted abstracts. Travel grants are specially intended to support young investigators; therefore applicants should be 36 years or younger of age. A number of travel grants have been reserved for abstract authors from countries with lower- and lower/middle-income economies. Travel grants are available only for abstracts submitted during the regular abstract submission.

Travel grant applications will be reviewed between March 7 - March 11 based on the following criteria:

You have applied for a junior membership with EHA before March 1.
Your junior membership fee has been paid before March 7.
You are the first, presenting and submitting author of a submitted abstract.
  • You have applied for a junior membership with EHA before March 1.
  • Your junior membership fee has been paid before March 7.
  • You are the first, presenting and submitting author of a submitted abstract.

The SPC will decide, according to the scores of the abstracts, which abstract receives a travel grant. This will be announced to the submitting author by e-mail before April 30, 2017.

The travel grant application system can be accessed through the right-hand side menu until the abstract submission deadline on March 1, 2017 (23:59 CET). Any questions regarding the criteria, the application or procedure can be direct to travelgrants@ehaweb.org.

Late breaking abstract procedure

The EHA Late Breaking Abstracts Policy allows for the submission of abstracts containing clinical or non-clinical data which were unavailable at the time of the abstract submission deadline (March 1, 2017). For clinical trials a preplanned analysis of the primary endpoint should have been scheduled after this date. Full submission guidelines are available via this link.  

The SPC moved the late breaking abstract submission to May 15 - 18, 2017 (23:59 CEST). Please note that due to the late scheduling of the procedure the selected late breaking abstracts will be made available in the online version of the Abstract Book (official supplement of Haematologica), the EHA Learning Center, the mobile app and via the program on the EHA website. The abstracts will not be included in the printed version of the Abstract Book. 

Abstract authors will be informed about the results of the review towards the end of May. Should you have any questions regarding any submitted abstracts please contact eha@mci-group.com.
