Late breaking abstracts
Authors wishing to submit a late breaking abstract for presentation at the 2014 conference must declare this to Diabetes UK by 17.00, Wednesday 2 October. Your declaration must include a brief summary of the abstract and the circumstances as to why/how this would be late breaking.

All declarations will be reviewed by the Conference Organising Committee in early November from which invitations will be sent to selected abstracts for submission of a formal abstract. Late breaking abstracts will be scored accordingly taking into account quality, impact and importance of rapid dissemination. Those accepted will be invited to present as a poster at the conference in a separate late breaking poster area. In exceptional cases, abstracts may be invited to present within the Hot Topics session on Friday 7 March 2014. Accepted late breaking abstracts will only be published online in the conference supplement of Diabetic Medicine.
