New at the 2018 Congress
All accepted late breaking abstracts will be published online as a supplement in¬†the Journal of Global Oncology (JGO) which provides high quality literature¬†on cancer care, research and care delivery issues.
In addition, the onsite¬†presentations will take place¬†in the dedicated Abstract Hub -¬†the Forum for Knowledge Mobilisation,¬†a novelty¬†of the 2018 Congress, and¬†supported by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC).
The Hub¬†will be designed¬†as a one-stop shop, where¬†all abstract related presentations will take place. It¬†aims to facilitate¬†the interactions between the presenters and the participants whilst¬†being easily accessible for all delegates.
