General Guidelines

The abstract body cannot exceed 2500 characters (including spaces), exclusive of the title, author block, images, and tables.

ISCT may reject abstracts that are considered inappropriate for any reason. Abstracts, once submitted, can only be withdrawn from publication no later than February 28, 2020. If not withdrawn by this deadline, all accepted abstracts will be published in the final program.

Abstracts must be submitted via the online Abstract Submission System. Abstracts will NOT be accepted by email, mail, or fax.

Abstract presenters MUST be registered for the meeting. For those requiring acceptance notifications before registering, ISCT will allow up to two weeks after acceptance for these individuals to register.

Late Breaking abstracts accepted for presentation will be published in the online version of a supplemental issue of Cytotherapy, the official journal of ISCT. Late-Breaking abstracts will not be included in the hard copy of the Cytotherapy Issue.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Embargo Policy

  • Abstracts submitted to the ISCT 2020 Annual Meeting are embargoed from other scientific journals or conference presentations from the time of submission.
  • For the abstract to be eligible for presentation at the ISCT 2020 Annual Meeting, information contained within, as well as additional data and information to be presented about the content, may not be published elsewhere or presented in another journal or conference before the abstract has been published/presented at the ISCT 2020 Annual Meeting.
  • Authors must notify ISCT if, after the submission deadline, the submitted abstract is accepted for publication elsewhere or will be presented before the ISCT 2020 Annual Meeting. Publication before the meeting may result in the abstract being removed from the meeting.
  • If the Embargo Policy is violated, the abstract may be withdrawn by ISCT from presentation at the ISCT 2020 Annual Meeting and from publication in the final program.


*An embargo means that information from any abstract or presentation may not be presented or published in another journal or conference before the embargo date and time.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
