AACE 2019 Abstracts and Press Releases
In advance of its annual congress, AACE publishes online the content of scientific abstracts that have been accepted for poster presentations and oral presentations. All accepted abstracts will be posted at the AACE 2019 website (am.aace.com) two weeks prior to the annual congress and as a supplement to the Association’s peer-reviewed journal, Endocrine Practice. However, the content of these abstracts is embargoed until the date and local time of presentations.
Please refer to the following website address for a complete listing of abstracts and the dates of presentations:
Academic institutions and private organizations may issue a press release about information contained in the abstract to coincide with the posting of an AACE Annual Congress abstract on the AACE website. However, AACE continues to require that any information that goes beyond the information contained in the abstract (e.g., discussion of the abstract done as part of a scientific presentation or presentation of additional new information that will be available at the time of the meeting), is under embargo until the designated date and time listed above.
Likewise, press releases for select AACE 2019 presentations, abstracts and/or posters will be available for review at www.media.aace.com/press_releases. However, releases also are embargoed until specified dates and times. Please refer to the embargo date listed on each release for this information.
AACE strictly enforces its embargo policy, which prohibits the distribution or publication of the contents of abstracts and press release information ahead of the embargo date and time. News media are required to abide by the embargo and confidentiality policies governing AACE 2019. Failure to do so will result in IMMEDIATE SUSPENSION of media credentials.
If you have any questions regarding an embargo date and time, please contact email@example.com.
Only press releases produced by AACE can be distributed in the Media Room. No press materials or press conferences arranged by other organizations are allowed in either the Media Room or Interview Room.
