Authors have the opportunity to indicate up to five keywords for their submission from a list of over 60 options.

Submit a Late-Breaking Abstract

Late-Breaking Submission Deadline: 13 August 2018

If you have already submitted your abstract, you can still login to view and edit your abstract. Editing will become disabled after the 13 August 2018 deadline.


You must categorize your Oral or Poster abstract as either research or practices in cancer education; it cannot be categorized as both. (Workshop abstracts do not need to be categorized in this manner.)
  • Research in Cancer Education, including research projects, as well as systematic literature reviews, pertaining to cancer education throughout the cancer continuum. Submissions in this category must conform to the Research Abstract Criteria.
  • Practices in Cancer Education, including projects or programs developed to meet a specific need in cancer education throughout the cancer continuum. Submissions in this category must conform to the Practices Abstract Criteria.
Abstract reviewers will use these Abstract Review Rubrics to score your Workshop, Research, and Practices abstracts.
