The EASL Congress 2023 Embargo Policy

By submitting an abstract to the EASL Congress 2023, you agree to abide by this embargo policy. The policy states that authors, presenters and/or their sponsors may not share data or key results from the abstract in any form (print, broadcast or online publication, media release or conference presentation) until this embargo is lifted. Authors, presenters and/or their sponsors may, however, publicise the fact that their abstract has been selected for inclusion in the congress programme before the abstract is officially released. In this context, they may publish the title of their abstract together with the names of the authors and institutions.

Embargos according to the category of submission

A detailed breakdown of the embargo policies for different types of abstracts is available below. All conference delegates, presenters, industry employees, sponsors, and media agree to respect this policy when submitting their abstracts or registering for the event. 

A.      Accepted abstracts selected for the following sessions should not be disclosed before the start time of the session in which the abstract is presented, or prior to the start time of the press conference in which the abstract is featured. Authors will be informed during the abstract notification process if their abstract has been selected for one of these sessions. 

    • General Session I 
    • General Session II 
    • Late-breaker Session 

B.     Abstracts in an EASL Congress 2023 press conference: data from a select number of abstracts, which are pre-selected for an official EASL Congress 2023 press conference, may not be sharedprior to the start time of the press conference in which the abstract is featured. Authors will be informed during the abstract notification process if their abstract has been pre-selected for potential inclusion during an official EASL Congress 2023 press conference. Press conferences are likely to take place over the first three to four days of the event. Pre-selection of an abstract does not, however, guarantee definite inclusion in an official EASL Congress 2023 press conference. 

C.    EASL Congress 2023 Late-breaker abstracts (poster presentations only): Data from abstracts submitted during the late-breaker submission period and which have been selected for poster presentation may not be disclosed before the start of the EASL Congress 2023 at 08:00 CET on Wednesday, 21 June 2023 (the opening day of the congress). 

D.    Accepted abstracts selected for the following sessions should not be disclosed before 08:00 CET on Wednesday, 7 June 2023 (i.e. two weeks before the start of the congress). 

    • Oral sessions(excluding General Session I, General Session II, Late-breaker Session, or pre-selected abstracts for potential inclusion in an EASL Congress 2023 press conference) 
    • Poster sessions(excluding pre-selected abstracts for potential inclusion in an EASL Congress 2023 press conference) 

Note: All pre-recorded presentations may not be disclosed before the start time of their presentation in the official programme. ePosters and ePoster videos may not be disclosed before 8:00 CEST on the first day of the event. 

Embargo breaks

Examples of breaking the embargo include publishing data from the abstract in a journal or via a public outlet before the abstract is presented at the congress. Violation of the embargo policy, above, will be taken seriously. Individuals and/or sponsors who violate it may face sanctions relating to current and future abstract submissions, presentations, and visibility at EASL event. The EASL Governing Board is at liberty to ban attendance and/or retract data.

 

If you find out that data from an abstract you submitted to the EASL Congress 2023 is scheduled for publication prior to the lifting of the embargo, please inform the EASL Congress 2023 team immediately at abstracts.easlcongress@easloffice.eu. 

 

Please direct any questions or concerns about the EASL Congress 2023 embargo policy for authors and presenters to the EASL Congress 2023 team at abstracts.easlcongress@easloffice.eu.
