​Late abstract submissions are now open for poster consideration at the 2023 Annual Conference. Abstracts will be peer reviewed and subject to selection. Accepted abstracts will be presented as traditional posters during the Annual Conference and published in the Quality of Life Research Journal Abstract Supplement.

All submissions related to the theory, methods, and application of health related quality of life research are welcome. There are no limitations based on “late-breaking” research. All presenters are expected to travel to Calgary, Alberta, Canada to present their research in person.

Deadlines for late abstracts are firm and will not be extended.

  • 7 July: Late abstract submissions deadline
  • 14 August: Late abstract submission presenters notify their intent to present and purchase conference registration

We invite you to submit a late abstract, or share this message with your colleagues and mentees and encourage them to submit!

Please note: Starting in 2024, the late submissions will be phased out and the ISOQOL Office will no longer be accepting late-breaking abstracts nor general abstracts after the spring submission deadline.
