What is a late breaker abstract?
Late breaker abstracts are highly competitive; only abstracts containing new, novel, cutting-edge information will be considered. Retrospective studies will not be considered. Because of the nature of late breakers, IDWeek will accept very few submissions for presentation, less than 10 percent. All late breaker abstracts must be submitted online. Authors of late breaker abstracts are not eligible to apply for IDWeek travel grants or awards.
Can I add a QR code to my poster?
Yes, you may add a QR code to your poster, however the QR code cannot lead to commercial content.
How long can my abstract be? Can I include images?
The abstract character limit is 1950 (spaces are not counted). Title and authors do not count against the 1950 character limit. Figures are accepted and they do not count towards character limit. There isn’t a maximum allowed resolution for figures. Acceptable file types for images are .gif, .jpg and .png. Color images are allowed. Please provide high resolution images.
How many abstracts can I submit?
There is no limit to the number of abstracts an author can submit.
Can I revise my abstract?
Revisions to your submission can be made before the submission deadline. No changes will be accepted after this deadline. In order to make changes to your abstract prior to the deadline, you must follow the link to your submission found in your submission confirmation email. To make a change select one of the nine steps to submit an abstract and save your changes. You will not receive a new confirmation email.
Can I add an author or remove an author from my abstract?
Authors can be changed before the submission deadline. Requests after this date will not be accommodated.
Is my submission complete?
Your submission is complete when you select “Submit” at the end of the abstract submission process. On the screen you will see the message, “Abstract successfully completed.” You will also receive an email with your abstract number and the link to go back and review your submission. Submissions with “Status: INCOMPLETE” cannot be processed. You may update or make changes to your abstract up until the submission deadline.
Can I request my abstract be presented on a certain day or time?
Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate date/time presentation requests. You may have a co-author or colleague present your abstract if you are unable to attend and do not wish to withdraw.
How do I cite an IDWeek abstract?
The following is a suggested style for citing IDWeek abstracts:
