There is no fee to submit an abstract and free registration for the Annual Meeting will be given to Associate Members who are first and presenting author of an abstract. Approximately 25 percent of the abstracts submitted will be eligible for oral presentation based on the review scores. All accepted abstracts will be published in the May supplement to Molecular Therapy.
International abstract submitters who plan to attend the ASGCT 23rd Annual Meeting will need to apply for a VISA. The amount of time required to obtain a VISA has increased tremendously, so please apply early. Abstract submitters can generate invitation letters online.
If you need assistance obtaining your letter of invitation, please contact Alex Peterson at the ASGCT Office.
Notification regarding acceptance of abstracts will be delivered via email on April 6, 2020. Meritorious Abstract Travel Awards, Excellence in Research Awards, and Underrepresented Minority Travel Awards acceptance and letters will also be sent at this time.
All notified abstract presenters are required to accept their presentation as instructed in their notification email. This can be done online through the abstract submission site.
ASGCT will not be accepting Late Breaking Abstract submissions for the 23rd Annual Meeting.
For all questions regarding the abstract submission process, please contact Coe-Truman Technologies’ Technical Support by phone at 1-217-398-1792 or by email at email@example.com. If you would like to make changes to your abstract after submitting, you will now be able to return directly to your abstract and make changes until the deadline.
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 lasting an hour and 45 minutes. Presentations are 10 minutes in length followed by five minutes of Q&A. Presenters are required to disclose any potential conflicts at the beginning of their presentation.
Sixty percent of all abstracts presented at the Annual Meeting occur during one of three poster sessions.
Poster sessions allow the presenter to illustrate the abstract on a poster board and discuss the abstract with attendees present at the poster session. Posters should acquaint conference participants with the fundamentals of the presenter's program, project, or study quickly and easily. Authors must be present during the entirety of the hourlong poster session in which their abstract has been assigned.
