At the time of the Scientific Program Committee’s initial review of Late-Breaking Abstracts (submitted by the February 1, 2012 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 2 deadline), three decisions are possible:
- Presentation at an Oral Abstract Session or Poster Discussion Session
- Online publication only in the 2012 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 2, 2012.
First Authors of Late-Breaking Abstracts have an opportunity to request that the abstract be withdrawn if the Committee deems it acceptable for online publication only.
