Information for Late-Breaking Abstract Authors

The goal of the ASH annual meeting is to present the best new scientific research in all areas of hematology. The ASH Program Committee recognizes that the results of some exciting research may not be available by the general abstract submission deadline. Hence, ASH offers a call for late-breaking abstract submissions for abstracts that highlight novel and substantive studies of high impact. The goal is to enrich the ASH annual meeting with outstanding studies that are completed after the general abstract submission deadline.

The 61st ASH Annual Meeting will be held December 7-10, 2019, in Orlando, Florida. Detailed eligibility requirements, general guidelines, and information about the late-breaking abstract review and selection process will be available in mid-2019.
