Late-breaking Abstract Submission Opens August 26

    Submission deadline: September 4, 11:59 p.m. ET.

    Large clinical trial results released after the standard abstract deadline that represent significant therapeutic advances or breakthrough basic science results on the level of a Science or Nature paper are eligible to submit as a late-breaking abstract.

    Submission Instructions & Rules
    The late-breaking abstracts must be submitted via the NACFC Abstract Website. Please adhere to the following instructions and rules for the submission of abstracts:

    Selection Process
    Abstract status notifications will be sent to authors in late-September. Authors will be required to present their late-breaking abstract in poster form.

    Accepted Abstracts: Poster Presentation
    All accepted abstracts must be presented in 4' x 4' poster form and displayed in their own poster section in The Exhibit hall. Please be sure to review the instructions for on-site poster presentation.

    Accepted Abstracts: ePosters
    ePosters allow participants to view posters electronically at their convenience, only in The Exhibit hall during the conference. This will provide increased exposure to authors’ posters, in addition to the poster presentation time during the scheduled poster session. Authors will receive further details for the ePoster submission portal opening.

    Accepted Abstracts: Thematic Poster Sessions 
    They will consist of two key parts: (1) poster presentations of abstracts focused on a central theme followed by a (2) moderated discussion. These sessions are designed to engage the authors and members of the audience in a discussion that ties together ideas from multiple posters in the session. For further details, please review the NACFC 2019 Thematic Poster Session Format.

    Accepted Abstracts: Oral Presentation
    In addition to being presented in poster form, some abstracts will be selected for oral presentation in specific Workshop sessions. If an author’s abstract is accepted for oral presentation, they will receive notification with further instructions.

    Best Abstract Awards for Junior Investigators
    First (presenting) authors of accepted abstracts who are enrolled in a graduate program or, at the time of the conference, are a post-doctoral or clinical fellow, who indicated they were interested will be eligible for consideration in a competition for two awards: (1) “Junior Investigator Best Abstract in Basic Science Award;" and (2) "Junior Investigator Best Abstract in Clinical Research Award." The five highest scoring abstracts will be chosen for oral presentations during the Junior Investigator Sessions, designed to highlight abstracts by junior investigators in the field of CF basic science and clinical research. The candidate with the best overall abstract and presentation will receive the respective award during NACFC.
