HCRA invites our members to submit an abstract from any area of translational cancer research for oral and poster presentations at the 2017 Hunter Cancer Research Symposium.

Abstracts selected for oral and poster presentations will be printed in the Symposium handbook and published online, as a supplement to the Asia-Pacific Journal of Clinical Oncology, prior to the meeting.

Prior to submitting your abstract please check the content of this form thoroughly and ensure that you have provided the full form of any abbreviated terminology.

The maximum abstract length is 300 words (including sub-headings). The word count does not include title, authors & author affiliations.

Before getting started we encourage you to draft your abstract in a word document and once you are happy with the content, copy & paste into this form.


Each abstract submitted must represent distinct research. Co-authorship of abstracts is permitted, and you may be first author on more than one abstract provided each abstract submitted represents distinct research.

Submission details:

  • Abstracts must be submitted by Friday 4th August, 2017
  • All abstracts will be peer-reviewed as part of the selection process
  • Presenting authors will be notified of submission outcomes via email in early September 2017
  • There will be awards for oral and poster presentations at the Symposium, with individual categories for early career researchers and students.

If you experience any difficulties completing this online form please email HCRA@newcastle.edu.au
