Call for Abstracts: 15th Annual AACI CRI Meeting


The AACI CRI Steering Committee is currently soliciting abstracts for the 15th Annual AACI CRI Meeting. This year’s meeting theme will focus on taking innovations in cancer clinical research from abstract to reality. The purpose of the abstracts is to inform meeting attendees about clinical trials office challenges and solutions implemented at AACI cancer centers.

Updates to the 2023 Submission Process

This year, AACI has changed the abstract submission categories to provide more detail. The seven newly-named categories are: Community Outreach and Engagement and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; Quality Assurance, Remote Monitoring, and Auditing; Regulatory; Resource Management and Finance; Trial Recruitment and Study Conduct; Trial Start-up, Activation, and Protocol Development; and Training, Career Development, and Staff Retention.

As in 2022, abstracts will be submitted online. The online submission tool will open February 1. In the meantime, we strongly encourage you to draft your abstract using the abstract template provided here and on the 2023 Call for Abstracts webpage. A style guide has been made available to help standardize the format of all abstracts to facilitate their review and publication for the abstracts and posters book created by AACI.  

Three abstracts will be selected for oral presentation at the meeting. Up to two authors of each winning abstract will receive a complimentary meeting registration or a refund for a previously paid meeting registration fee. While AACI encourages collaboration with external organizations, only employees of AACI member cancer centers are eligible for complimentary meeting registration. All accepted abstracts will have the opportunity to submit a poster, which will be on display during the poster session for attendees to view and will be featured in the 2023 AACI CRI Abstracts and Posters Book.

Information about the poster session is forthcoming.
