NEW FOR 2023: SSO Accepting Late Breaking Abstracts

The SSO late-breaking policy allows for the submission of late-breaking data only for the following:

  • Randomized phase II and III trials for which no preliminary data are available at the time of the abstract submission deadline (October 7, 2022).
  • Original research studies that highlight novel and high-impact research with practice-changing implications
The initial abstract must be submitted by the October 7, 2022, deadline as a placeholder (shell) abstract submission. During submission, you will be required to enter all authors and submit disclosures, the Background and Methods sections, provide the primary clinical endpoint for analysis, type of analysis, date of planned analysis, and planned statistical methods.

Please review the abstract submission guidelines for more information. If your abstract is accepted, the final data will be due December 9, 2022. No extensions will be granted.
