You will also be asked to identify up to two keywords and a site for site-specific research. A list of keywords available can be found here.
Your abstract will have four main sections: Background, Methods, Results, and Conclusions. You will also be asked to summarise in a sentence the impact of your work. The total word count must be no more than 350 words long. Tables can be included and any contents do count towards the word limit. References and citations to previously published work should be avoided.
Abstracts that have been presented at other conferences will, if accepted, be eligible for presentation at the NCRI Virtual Showcase. However, to be considered for the media programme the work you submit must be original and not published before.
The NCRI Virtual Showcase is accepting abstract submissions from Trials in Progress – providing an opportunity for researchers to present ongoing trials. We recognise that Trials in Progress are ongoing projects and might have not reached definite results by the time of submission so it is acceptable to only include background and methods in any such submissions. When reviewing them, the Scientific Committee will pay particular attention to the trial design, the strength of the science being submitted, the potential for collaboration and their relevance to the NCRI Virtual Showcase topics.
All accepted abstracts will be presented as an e-poster (which will be available through the NCRI Conference & Events App) and will be considered for virtual-oral presentation in proffered paper and other sessions. Presenters might be asked to submit a pre-recorded presentation or to be available for a live session as relevant.
An e-poster is an electronic version of a poster. Accepted presenters will be sent a link where they will be able to download a template to create their e-poster. The template can be amended as necessary (colours, font type and background can be changed) and images, charts and logos added as necessary (no animations or videos). We recommend font size is between 6-10 points as e-posters will be displayed on the NCRI Conference & Events App with zooming functionality.
