Submission & Presentation Information
Here's what to know about submitting and presenting your research.

Abstract Submission is Open Through Feb. 3

Submit Your Abstract

Submission Requirements

  • Abstracts have a maximum limit of 3,500 characters. This includes the abstract title, abstract body, graphics, tables, and all author information. Spaces are not included in the character limit.

  • Figures and tables each use approximately 320 of your 3500 total characters. 

  • ASGCT has no required format for the body of an abstract. Abstracts may be written in one block of text, or divided into sections such as: Introduction, Methods, Results, and Conclusions. This is strictly the author's preference.

  • Authors should be cautious in using institutional references in the body of the abstract. Do not put author names and/or affiliations in the body. Abstracts which include reference to authors or institutions will not be reviewed.

Presenting Your Abstract

Oral Abstract Presentations  

Approximately 25 percent of accepted abstracts are scheduled as oral abstract presentations. Oral abstract presentations are formal PowerPoint presentations given during simultaneous oral abstract sessions. Presentations are 10 minutes in length followed by five minutes of Q&A. Abstract sessions last one hour and 45 minutes. Presenters are required to disclose any potential conflicts at the beginning of their presentation.  

Oral abstract presenters are expected to present at the 26th Annual Meeting live on site at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, CA. Accommodations for virtual presentations may be made by request based on employer travel and participation mandates or for personal reasons as we are able. More information will be posted on this site as it's confirmed.  

Poster Presentations  

The remaining 75 percent of ASGCT abstracts will be presented in the on-site poster hall and as virtual presentations in 2023.  

Presenting authors will be given the option to present in person, virtually, or both. On-site poster boards will be 4' x 8' in landscape orientation (the recommended poster size is 3' x 6'). Posters will be scheduled for presentation during Poster Hall Presentation receptions at the end of each full day of the Annual Meeting.   

ASGCT is once again having a Virtual Poster Hall as an option for presenting authors to offer a fully-virtual presentation or supplement to an in-person presentation.  

The virtual presentation experience will allow you to:  

  • Establish your vision without the constraints of the 4x8 format of a traditional poster  

  • Record your own presentation, including a narrated PowerPoint, and convert to MP4 to upload as a video  

  • Take advantage of the built-in live chat and direct messaging tools to engage with viewers and connect with attendees  

  • Attract potential employer clickthroughs with a customized title slide to appear in virtual presentation listings  


More information about abstract and poster presentations will be posted closer to the meeting.
