Q. What is a late breaker abstract?

A. 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. Late breaker submission will begin in May.
