ATA Abstract Submission Policy and Responsibilities of the Author: The 15th ITC organizers requests submission of abstracts for consideration at the Congress to feature new data presented as posters or oral presentations. The 15th ITC goal is to provide the audience and the media with new data that are unpublished (in print or electronic) which are being publicly presented for the first time. Authors are asked to strictly comply with this requirement; data that are to become available to the public in the setting of a national or international meeting before their presentation at the ATA meeting are not eligible for presentation at the ATA meeting. Data may be submitted for publication before or after abstract submission to the ATA. However, data accepted for publication prior to the 15th ITC meeting would REQUIRE the authors to request the publisher to embargo their publication (electronic and print) until 8:00 am local time the first day of the meeting, or would REQUIRE the authors to withdraw their abstract from the ATA meeting. Many editors are favorable to embargo requests because of the attention that may be drawn to the publication after original presentation of the data at a major meeting. Further, the authors are welcome to announce the date and place of their anticipated publication if known. Abstracts are reviewed in confidence by the 15th ITC Program Organizing Committee with possible ad hoc members.

Additional policies:

  • CHARACTER LIMIT: There is a limit of 2,245 characters (approx. 300 words) for the text of your submission.
  • Authors of accepted posters are required to register and be present during the assigned poster sessions.
  • Scientific materials presented must not have been submitted for publication at the time of abstract submission or presented at a scientific meeting before the 15th International Thyroid Congress (local and regional meetings excluded).  
  • All abstracts must be filed electronically via the American Thyroid Association abstract submission site. Submissions will not be accepted by fax or mail.
  • All materials must arrive on or before the abstract deadlines noted above.
  • Authorship on multiple abstracts is permitted.

  • Autoimmunity

Presentation Types Available
Abstracts may be submitted for consideration as a: (1) Poster, (2) Oral Abstract Presentation, or (3) Posters with Short Oral Presentation. When submitting your abstract, please make sure to select which presentation method you want to be considered. Highly scored abstracts submitted will be accepted for oral presentations (12-minute presentations with 1-2 minutes for discussion) or posters with short oral presentations (poster plus one slide with maximum 5-minute presentation). All other abstracts will be considered/accepted for poster presentation. Once notifications are released, all submitters will be provided with a deadline to respond regarding acceptance of abstract placement (poster, oral or poster for short oral discussion).

Short Call Abstracts

  • Short Call Abstracts are reserved for the presentation of the very latest, important thyroid-related research with high impact. Submission of a Short Call Abstract does not guarantee acceptance for presentation. (Please note that regular research reports should be submitted by the Regular Abstract deadline.)
  • Only Six (6) Short Call Abstracts will be selected for 10-minute oral presentations during a special symposium. Selected additional Short Call Abstracts may be presented as special posters. All other submissions will not be published.
