On behalf of the 27th CGA-IGC Annual Meeting Planning Committee, we would like to thank you for submitting your work for presentation. The online submission and evaluation process will be administered by Kenes M+ Annual Meeting Organizing Secretariat.

Please take a moment to read the below guidelines before proceeding to submit your abstract.

(The system servers are located in GMT+3 time zone. Please make sure to check your time difference to determine the submission deadline according to your local time.)






Please take a moment to read the below guidelines before submitting your abstract.

  • All abstracts must be written in English.
  • All abstracts must be submitted online through the abstract submission system. Abstracts that are sent via e-mail will not be included in the abstract review process.
  • Use acronyms only when necessary and define all abbreviations and concepts in your abstract at first use.
  • Always make sure to check the final abstract with the system’s preview function before submission and edit or replace as necessary. It is the authors’ responsibility to submit a correct abstract. Any errors in spelling, grammar or scientific fact will be reproduced as typed by the author.
  • The submitting and presenting authors are required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before the submission.
  • Only studies based on new and not-previously published results can be submitted.
  • All abstracts will initially be reviewed and will either be accepted or rejected by the Scientific Committee. The Organizing and Scientific Committees reserve the right to determine whether an abstract submission is accepted as an oral or a poster presentation.
  • Only the abstracts of presenting authors who have completed their registrations and paid their registration fees by the registration deadline for abstract presenters (August 14, 2023) will be included in the Scientific Program and the abstract publications in the Familial Cancer Journal.
  • Withdrawal of abstracts is only accepted if notified in writing and subsequently confirmed by the CGA-IGC Annual Meeting Organizing Secretariat.
  • By submitting an abstract, the authors consent to giving 2023 CGA-IGC permission to publish their abstracts in the Familial Cancer Journal.
  • Since there will be no editing process on the abstracts, the authors are requested to avoid any typing errors, mis-ordering of the authors, wrong spelling/writing about the institutions, etc.



Step 1 / 10: Presentation Options

Topic: An abstract topic (see list here) that is relevant for your abstract must be selected during Step 1 of the submission process. The Scientific Committee reserves the right to change the topics during the abstract assessment process.

Preferred presentation type: Please choose one of the following:

Podium (Oral) or Poster

Poster Only

The Scientific Committee reserves the right to change the presentation type according to the requirements of the scientific program.


Step 2 / 10: Institution Information

Institution(s): The institution(s) of the authors should be indicated fully with the "department" and "institution" names while avoiding any abbreviations such as Dept., Inst., Hosp., etc. Please include the City and Country for each institution. (For US, please make sure to enter the country information after the state name).

The institution, city and country should be written in lower case while the initials of each word are written in capitals.

Enter each affiliation only once: i.e., if there are 5 authors and 3 of whom are from same affiliation and 2 of whom are from another, you will have 2 institutions, NOT 5. However, if there are 2 or more departments at the same institution represented, they can be entered separately.

If any of the authors have more than one affiliation, enter both affiliations in a compounded style as one affiliation: i.e., if there are 5 authors and 2 of whom are from same affiliation (Institute A), 2 of whom are from another (Institute B), and 1 of whom is from both affiliations (Institutes A and B), you will have 3 institutions, NOT 5 or NOT 2. (First institution: Institute A, second one: Institute B and the third one: Institute A & Institute B). Include the City and Country for each affiliation.


 Step 3 / 10: Author Information

Author(s): First, middle, and last names of all the authors must be fully indicated correctly and in the right order. Please pay attention to match the institutions to the right authors, and make sure that you select the “presenting author” correctly.


Step 4 / 10: Presenting Author Information

Step 5 / 10: Abstract Title
