Why should I submit an abstract?
An abstract tells a story about how your center has addressed a clinical trials operational problem. Since many AACI cancer centers face similar obstacles, sharing your story helps promote practices leading to better efficiency and quality at other AACI cancer centers.
Who can submit an abstract?
AACI members may collaborate with other centers or external organizations to submit an abstract.
What should I include in my abstract?
You must use the provided CRI Abstract Template
and describe the following:
Do I have to use the AACI CRI Abstract Template?
- Background of the problem
- Goals or metrics
- Solutions implemented
- Results or conclusions from the steps implemented (positive or negative)
- Recommendations, lessons learned, or next steps
It is recommended that authors use the template to draft their submissions, as the abstract template requires the same information that will be collected in the online submission tool.
May I submit an abstract presented at a past meeting?
Yes. However, if the abstract was submitted for a prior AACI CRI Annual Meeting, the abstract must be significantly updated from the initial submission. Changes may include project expansion, new or updated results, and/or completion of next steps.
Can I submit an abstract with research that is in progress/interim analysis?
Yes, as with all abstracts, a description of data analysis helps to support your conclusions. However, if you are providing an abstract where the data analysis is not available but other findings can support your solutions, the committee is interested in reviewing those abstracts as well.
How do I submit my abstract?
Beginning in March, authors will be able to enter information online using a new submission tool.
Can I make changes to a submitted abstract?
No. Abstracts will be submitted for review in the format they are received, so please make sure that your abstract is a final version when you submit it to AACI.
Are examples of other CRI meeting abstracts available for review?
Yes. You may view abstracts and posters from the 10th Annual AACI CRI Meeting in the 2018 Abstract and Posters Book
