All reviewers, session planners and invited faculty will be required to disclose all financial relationships through the online system, helping to ensure high-quality, unbiased presentations and compliance with CME regulations.

ACCEPTED ABSTRACTS & THE ANNALS OF SURGICAL ONCOLOGY

The following guidance provides submission information; detailed information will be provided to accepted abstract presenters.

Presenters of abstracts accepted for the Advanced Cancer Therapies are encouraged to submit their manuscripts to the ASO as well. Publication of all manuscripts in the journal is subject to the ASO peer review process.
