I submitted my abstract to Lyon23 and OCP23 and it was converted to OCP23 only. Can I still present at Lyon?

If your abstract was originally submitted for presentation in Lyon and was converted to OCP only, you may request to be on the waiting list to receive an invitation if additional space becomes available or if invited authors do not accept their invitations using the form at https://iamcr.org/lyon2023/waitlist

One of my abstracts was accepted for Lyon23 and OCP23 and another converted to OCP23 only. Can I present both in Lyon?

It may be possible to present both. The status of the converted one will need to first be changed to accepted for Lyon23 and OCP23. To request that the abstract be converted back to Lyon23 and OCP23, complete the form at https://iamcr.org/lyon2023/convert



Can we add presenting authors to our abstract accepted for presentation in Lyon?

No. Only authors identified as presenting authors at the time the abstract was submitted will be able to register for and attend the conference.

My abstract was accepted for presentation at Lyon23 but I will not be able to attend the conference. Can I have my abstract converted to OCP23 only or withdraw it?

My abstract was accepted for presentation in Lyon but I haven't received an invitation to register for the conference.

1. Check your spam/junk mail folders of the email address you registered with in Ex Ordo to see if the invitation to register ended up there.

2. If your abstract has more than one author, only those identified as presenting authors at the time the abstract was submitted were invited to register and attend the conference in Lyon. See the presenting author(s) of your abstract by logging into Ex Ordo via https://iamcr2023.exordo.com/login

Co-authors who were not initially identified as presenting authors cannot have their status changed.
