Childhood Cancer Data Initiative (CCDI) Symposium
Scientific stakeholders and leaders from academia, government, industry, and advocacy organizations will gather in Washington, DC, July 29–31, 2019, for the NCI Childhood Cancer Data Initiative (CCDI) Symposium—a scientific planning session to gain a common understanding of the current issues and opportunities in childhood cancer research that can be addressed through enhanced data collection and maximum utilization of that data. Discussions will help inform the development of goals for the initiative.
Call for Poster Abstracts
NCI invites researchers to submit abstracts to be considered for poster presentations at the symposium.
Areas of interest for poster submission include research, methodologies, and tools that focus in any of the following categories:
- Scientific and clinical research data needs in childhood and adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancers
- Establishing meaningful datasets for clinical care and associated research progress
- Building infrastructure to enable federation among disparate databases
- Extracting knowledge from data
- Developing adequate and equitable policies for shared data resources
Accepted poster presentations will be on display the first evening of the symposium (Monday, July 29) from 8:00 p.m. to 9:30 pm. Presenters must be available to attend the symposium in person at that time, if selected.
Abstracts may have a maximum length of 350 words (no tables or figures) and should provide the following content:
- Description of relevant program, product, service, or methodology
- Applicability to childhood/AYA cancers and/or data sharing and management of data infrastructure
- Potential for broader use in the research or participant communities
- Evidence of success and critical lessons learned
The deadline for abstract submissions is June 30. Submissions received by June 15 will receive early-bird consideration.
All accepted abstracts with author names and titles will be posted online in July. Abstracts will not be edited.
Posters can measure up to 6 feet wide by 4 feet high.
