With over 25,000 attendees, the ASCO Annual Meeting is the one of the largest educational and scientific events in the oncology community-an ideal venue for physicians, scientists and health care providers to present research results to a global audience of oncology professionals. This cutting-edge research helps set the standard for cancer care in the United States and around the world.

The abstract submission deadline is Wednesday, February 5, 2013 at 11:59 PM (EST). Presentation of your abstract at a recent co-sponsored ASCO Symposium does not preclude your submission of the same abstract to the 2013 Annual Meeting. In fact, this provides an exceptional opportunity to present your updated data to a significantly larger audience. Visit for detailed information on ASCO's abstract policies, submission guidelines, frequently asked questions, and coauthor disclosure forms.

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago.
