The ISSWSH Scientific Program Committee is accepting late-breaking abstract submissions for the ISSWSH Annual Meeting to take place this March. The deadline for late breaking abstract submission is January 15, 2020.
ISSWSH is pleased to offer a late-breaking abstract submission process for findings from scientific research or clinical practice that are newly available and likely to be of high impact.
The late-breaking abstract deadline should not be viewed as a mere extension of the general submission deadline nor is it for studies that are simply late to be submitted or for projects that are in development. In order to be considered as a “Late-Breaking Abstract”, the following parameters should be met:
- The presenting author should indicate why the data were not available prior to the previous abstract deadline (e.g., data collection was not yet complete or a clinical trial only recently closed).
- The submission should not be a re-submission of an abstract that was previously submitted (and not accepted) during the general abstract process.
- The presenting author must indicate that the work has not previously been presented at another scientific venue/conference, published (abstract or manuscript), or presented during the meeting at other (including satellite) industry-sponsored events.
- The presenting author must clearly disclose financial support of the research, any financial conflict of interest (e.g., membership on an advisory board, sponsored research, stock ownership, or substantive relationships), and confirm that all co-authors are aware of the submission of the late-breaking abstract and support its presentation.
All abstracts presented at the meeting will be published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
Abstract submission categories:
- Basic Science
- Chronic Medical Illness and FSD
- Clinical Trials
