Call for Abstracts

Building on the success of the last Symposium, the Programme Committee is pleased to once again issue a Call for Abstracts for oral and poster presentations.

Interested participants are invited to submit abstracts on topics related to hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Submissions are welcome from all disciplines. Specific topic categories are listed below. Abstracts may be in English or French and must not exceed 300 words.

Abstracts accepted for presentation as orals will be included in the programme as 10-minute proffered papers. Presenters will take part with the invited faculty in the question and discussion period scheduled in each session.

Abstracts submitted for oral presentation and not accepted as orals will be automatically considered by the Review Committee for poster presentation. Please do not resubmit your abstract.
