ISCT is the place for you to discuss your research with a global community of experts across the translation field.

Avoidance of Marketing or Promotion
ISCT requests that presenters avoid the use of trade names and logos for drugs, devices and/or instrumentation in these scientific sessions and to use generic names, where possible. Presentation content will be well-balanced, will be based on generally accepted scientific principles and methods, and will not promote a commercial interest.

Guidelines and Policies

  • To qualify for submission under the late-breaking abstract category, abstracts must contain novel late-breaking data not available during initial submission period.
  • The abstract body cannot exceed 2500 characters, exclusive of the title, author block, images, and tables
  • Note that spaces count as characters
  • Abstracts must be submitted via the online Abstract Submission System. Abstracts will NOT be accepted by email, mail, or fax
  • ISCT may reject abstracts that are considered inappropriate for any reason. Abstracts, once submitted, can only be withdrawn from publication no later than March 12, 2024. If not withdrawn by this deadline, All accepted abstracts will be published in the final program and abstract supplement
  • Abstract presenters MUST be registered for the meeting. For those requiring acceptance notifications before registering, ISCT 2024 will allow up to two weeks after acceptance for these individuals to register
  • Abstracts submitted to the ISCT 2024 Annual Meeting are embargoed from the time of submission.
  • For the abstract to be eligible for presentation at the ISCT 2024 Annual Meeting, information contained within, as well as additional data and information to be presented about the content, may not be published elsewhere or made public before the abstract has been published/presented at the ISCT 2024 Annual Meeting.
  • Authors must notify ISCT if, after the submission deadline, the submitted abstract is accepted for publication elsewhere and will be published before the ISCT 2024 Annual Meeting. Publication before the meeting may result in the abstract being removed from the conference.
  • If the Embargo Policy is violated, the abstract may be withdrawn by ISCT from presentation at the ISCT 2024 Annual Meeting and from publication in the abstract supplement.

*An embargo means that information from any abstract or presentation may not be announced,
publicized, or distributed before the embargo date and time.

ISCT generally does not accept encore abstracts unless there are substantial data updates. However, exceptions may be granted upon written request to vanessaho@isctglobal.org, provided your request includes a clear justification for the encore abstract (e.g. if the ISCT audience significantly differs from the initial presentation).

* An encore abstract is the resubmission of an original abstract that has previously been presented at another conference
