To submit an abstract, the following criteria must be met

    If none of the abstract authors is an ASH member, the abstract must be sponsored by a current ASH member or it will not be reviewed. ASH members are urged to use their judgment in restricting sponsorship to a reasonable number of abstracts, keeping in mind that they are endorsing the authenticity and quality of each abstract that they sponsor.

  • Research and/or studies must fit into one of the ASH 2021 Abstract Review Categories.
  • Updated analyses will be considered only if the abstract is a significant extension of previously published work. The author must provide an explanation to show how the abstract contains significant new information.

    *Note: Abstracts submitted to other ASH meetings (e.g., the 2019 Meetings on Lymphoma and Hematologic Malignancies) are exempted from the above meeting-size restriction and are eligible to be re-submitted to the 2021 ASH Annual Meeting.
