Presenting authors are asked to submit their abstracts online via the submission form »


You must be registered to submit an abstract. An abstract received without registration will not be considered. Please enter your Registration Confirmation Number at the time of your submission. This number is found in your Conference Registration confirmation email.

In addition to Invited Talks, the conference will feature:

  • Short Talks (including Next Generation and Cutting Edge Science)
  • Poster Presentations

During the submission process, you will be asked if you would prefer your abstract to be considered for a Short Talk only, a Poster Presentation only, or either a Short Talk or Poster Presentation.

New for 2018:
We are excited to announce a new session to this year’s conference called “Next Generation Researchers in Cancer Cachexia”. The purpose of this session is to highlight young scientists and clinicians committed to careers in cancer cachexia by providing them the opportunity to give an oral presentation.

Selected talks will be 10 minutes in length, with 5 minutes of questions to follow. All early stage investigators are encouraged to apply but preference will be given to postdocs, clinical fellows, and pre-tenure faculty. Interested individuals planning to attend the meeting should submit their abstract along with their CV by July 15th via the online submission form link.

Note: Should you select Short Talk and not be selected to speak, your abstract will automatically be added to Poster Presentation.
