Abstract Selection and Formats



Abstracts submitted for presentation in the European Cancer Congress 2015 will be reviewed by an international panel of experts in the field of the subject and will be judged solely on the data submitted. The final decision on the presentation format of all selected abstracts lies at the sole discretion of the Scientific Committee.

The following presentation formats are applicable at the European Cancer Congress 2015:


Oral presentation

The abstract is selected for oral presentation in one of the proffered papers sessions. Abstracts of superior quality can be selected for presentation in a session where discussants will place the research findings into perspective.


Poster Presentation

Abstracts that have been selected for poster presentation will be displayed on poster boards in a prominent poster viewing area next to the exhibition.  The posters will be grouped by topic and displayed for two hours each.  A specific time will be devoted to poster viewing to ensure delegates have sufficient opportunity to acquaint themselves with the presented data.


Poster Discussion

Prominent experts will provide a thematic overview and discuss the findings from selected abstracts chosen for poster presentation. Delegates will be offered an expert review-at-a-glance of the presented findings and will be able to further refine their interest in specific abstracts.


Poster Spotlight Sessions

The Scientific Committee will make a special selection of posters which will be highlighted through short oral presentations followed by moderated discussion. These sessions will facilitate dynamic exchange on selected findings of broad interest.


Abstract Withdrawal

ECCO cannot guarantee any request for withdrawal of an abstract that in any way delays the ECC2015 publications. Requests to withdraw abstracts will be accepted until 10 July 2022. After this date, abstracts selected presentation must be presented. If the presenting author of a selected abstract cannot attend, they should assign a replacement and inform ECCO of the replacement as soon as possible.


The presenting author will receive a letter with the result of the review and the Scientific Committee’s decision on the abstract by early July.
