By January 28, 2010, all submitters will receive notification of their submitted abstracts status for the meeting. If you do NOT receive an email notification regarding your abstract by January 28th, please send an email inquiry to Technical Support at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-866-759-5440.
Your email will receive a prompt answer. Inquiries before January 28, 2010 will not receive a response. All presenters are expected to cover their own travel and lodging and pay the registration fees.
Abstracts selected for ATC will be presented in plenary, concurrent and poster sessions that will highlight the most outstanding papers from all transplant specialties. Notification of acceptance of these papers have been sent.
All accepted abstracts will be published in the official ATC program book, a supplement to the joint ASTS/AST journal, American Journal of Transplantation (AJT). The supplement will be mailed to all AJT subscribers prior to the meeting. All abstracts selected for presentation and the final program will be available online through the ATC website by March 9, 2010.
In compliance with the Securities and Exchange Commission's Regulation FD (Fair Disclosure), the accepted abstracts are made available to the public on the ATC website and are published in a special supplement of American Journal of Transplantation (AJT) in advance of the meeting. Thus, the first release of the abstracts is a public release. Coverage of additional research being presented at the annual meeting is under embargo until the date of presentation.
Academic institutions, private organizations, and companies with products whose value may be influenced by information contained in an abstract may issue a press release to coincide with the availability of an abstract. However, the ATC continues to require that information that goes beyond that contained within the abstract, e.g., discussion of the abstract done as part of a scientific presentation, is to be embargoed until the start of the scientific sessions. Violation of this policy may result in the abstract being withdrawn from the meeting and other measures deemed appropriate. Journalists failing to abide by the embargo may have their press credentials revoked.
