Late Breaking Abstract Guidelines
SNO recognizes that some rapidly advancing investigations may include results that will not be available at the time of the abstract submission deadline of February 6, 2023. For this reason, SNO will allow authors to submit their Late-Breaking research for consideration for the 2023 SNO Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Research Conference, however submissions must adhere to guidelines below.

Please note that only a limited number of abstracts from this Late-Breaking category will be selected for oral presentation at the meeting in Washington, DC. Authors should note the following important information before submitting a Late-Breaking Abstract:
  • Late-Breaking abstracts will be considered for oral presentation only.
  • Late-Breaking abstracts accepted for oral presentation will not be included in the regular abstract supplement to Neuro-Oncology and will be published electronically on the day of presentation.
  • Late-Breaking abstracts not accepted for presentation will not be considered for any type of presentation format (poster, poster discussion or oral) and will not be part of the annual meeting program.
  • Late-Breaking abstracts will not be considered for awards.
This category is not intended to offer a second deadline for regular abstract submissions.  

For an abstract to be considered for Late-Breaking Abstract status, the submitting author must:
  • Select the “Late-Breaking Abstract” category button in the abstract submission program.
  • Submit an abstract, including the objectives and methods but excluding the results and conclusions of the research, by the submission deadline of Monday, February 6, 2023. Include any information that supports the potential for late-breaking impact, and the date of planned analysis for the abstract.
  • Submit a final Late-Breaking abstract (with updated data) by Friday, April 14, 2023. If an updated abstract is not submitted by that date, the abstract will be automatically rejected.
