Abstract Submission guidelines

Please submit your abstract

We invite researchers and young investigators to submit their work for presentation at the TMC Platinum Jubilee ‘A conference of new ideas in cancer: challenging dogmas’. Submitted abstracts must present work based on a novel idea or a contrarian thought challenging the current and existing dogmas in cancer, consistent with the central theme and overall spirit of the conference. The abstracts must be designed to include a clear title, background, methods, results and conclusions. Each abstract should be limited to 300 words. Abstracts may be sent on a word document or pdf.

Authors

The corresponding author should preferably be the first author (presenter) of the abstract, unless otherwise noted during submission.
Co-Authors: Names of co-authors and institutions must be provided. Changes will not be made to the spelling of authors' names after the submission deadline.

Eligibility:

To submit an abstract, the following criteria are essential:

• The abstract must be written in English and carefully proofread.
• It should address scientific questions, detail clinical observations or contain primary scientific data, consistent with the theme of the conference as describe above.
• Updated analyses will be considered only if the abstract is a significant extension of previously published work. The author must provide an explanation to show how the abstract contains significant new information.
• Emails and word processing files not submitted through the site will not be accepted.
• We would encourage authors to register for the conference as a delegate while submitting their abstracts. Only registered delegates will be allowed to present, should their abstract be accepted.

The abstract will be ineligible for presentation at our TMC Platinum Jubilee celebrations if they submit data, which is already publicly available via major search engines (such as PubMed, Google Scholar, etc).
