Submission of Abstracts - Guidance
Accepted Abstracts will be submitted for publication in Clinical Oncology online.
SpR authors are invited to submit abstracts for acceptance for poster presentation at the 7th UKBCG Annual Meeting, 15th-16th November 2019 at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel, London.
Please note that abstract submissions are open to SpRs in breast cancer and this individual should also be the lead and presenting author at the meeting.
Every abstract should be reviewed by a Consultant in advance of submission.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is midnight Sunday 22nd September 2019. Please do not post or fax your abstract - it can only be submitted electronically via the form below. Those SpR authors invited to present their abstract for poster presentation will be required to register and attend the Annual Meeting.
UKBCG does not accept abstracts that have been published in a journal in advance of the Meeting, but can accept those that have been presented at other meetings. Please declare relevant information about any other submissions of the same abstract. UKBCG does not accept abstracts written by a medical writer on behalf of the author.
All submitted abstracts will be assessed by the Review Panel who will accept abstracts for poster presentation at the UKBCG Annual Meeting and a number will be selected for poster and a short oral presentation at the Meeting.
All authors will be advised on whether their abstract has been accepted by mid October 2019. All correspondence will be with the submitting author.
Preparing the Abstract
Abstract submissions should not include scientific tables, symbols or diagrams and should not exceed 300 words (excluding References).
The content must be arranged under the following headings: PURPOSE - METHODS - RESULTS – CONCLUSION.
The results should contain adequate data to assess the results and interpret the conclusions.
References should be identified in the text using square brackets, and numbered and listed consecutively at the end of the paper in the order in which they are first cited in the text. The Vancouver style is used. (Author(s) – Family name and initials. Title of article. Title of journal – abbreviated publication year, month, day (month & day only if available); volume(issue):pages). If you are providing references and there are more than six authors on a reference, then the first six author names should be listed, followed by ‘et al’.
Upon notification of whether your abstract has been accepted for presentation at the UKBCG Meeting, further details on presentation formats will be provided. UKBCG will provide and fund a service for the production of posters and further details on this will again be issued on notification of acceptance. Please note that this service is for physical production and excludes design of posters.
Accepted abstracts will be submitted for publication in Clinical Oncology online. Abstracts will not be edited and will be published as received.
