Late-Breaking Abstracts

The online submission period for late-breaking abstracts will be August 17 - September 3, 2020. Details will be made available on this site in mid-July. Authors of accepted late-breaking abstracts will be notified in early September, and must register for and present their abstract at the ACG 2020 Scientific Meeting.

Late-breaking abstracts must abide by the same submission guidelines and instructions required for abstracts submitted during the general February 24 – June 15, 2020 submission period.

Guidelines for late-breaking abstracts will be the same as for the general submission period abstracts*, with the following exceptions:
  • Abstracts will be considered if they detail high-quality clinical research results that were not available or fully analyzed at the general abstract deadline (June 15, 2020).
  • Abstracts that were already considered during the general abstract period should not be resubmitted.
  • Clinical vignettes, case reports, and video submissions will not be considered.
  • Late-breaking abstracts are only considered for oral presentation and not as posters, and they will not be included in the supplement to the October 2020 issue of The American Journal of Gastroenterology
