Abstract Submission Policy and Responsibilities of the Author The 15th International Thyroid Congress (ITC) organizers requests submission of abstracts for consideration at the Congress to feature new data presented as posters or oral presentations. The 15th ITC goal is to provide the audience and the media with new data that are unpublished (in print or electronic) which are being publicly presented for the first time. Authors are asked to strictly comply with this requirement; data that are to become available to the public in the setting of a national or international meeting before their presentation at the 15th ITC are not eligible for presentation at the 15th ITC. Data may be submitted for publication before or after abstract submission to the 15th ITC.However, data accepted for publication prior to the 15th ITC meeting would REQUIRE the authors to request the publisher to embargo their publication (electronic and print) until 8:00 am local time the first day of the meeting, or would REQUIRE the authors to withdraw their abstract from the 15th ITC. Many editors are favorable to embargo requests because of the attention that may be drawn to the publication after original presentation of the data at a major meeting. Further, the authors are welcome to announce the date and place of their anticipated publication if known. Abstracts are reviewed in confidence by the 15th ITC Program Organizing Committee with possible ad hoc members. Presentation Types Available When submitting your abstract, please make sure to select which presentation method you want to be considered. Abstracts may be submitted for consideration as a: (1) Poster (2) Oral Abstract Presentation -- (12-minute presentations with 1-2 minutes for discussion) (3) Posters with Short Oral Presentation -- (poster plus one slide with maximum 5-minute presentation) Additional Policies
