All abstracts, posters and oral (platform) scientific presentations are under strict embargo once ACMG has notified a presenter of their abstract’s acceptance. 

An embargo means that information from any abstract, poster or presentation is confidential and may not be announced, publicized, or disseminated before the embargo lift dates and times, as detailed below. The purpose of the ACMG Embargo Policy below is to protect the scientific integrity of all content presented at the ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics meeting and to ensure publicity is not released prematurely. 

All ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting content to be presented or published is embargoed until the time of an actual conference presentation, ACMG has updated its guidelines to reflect the current e-publishing and online environment. The Embargo Policy below provides more details regarding the types of content that are embargoed. 

The ACMG Embargo Policy is based on trust. Violation of the ACMG Embargo Policy may result in the abstract being withdrawn from the meeting and other measures deemed appropriate may be taken. Media who violate the Embargo Policy may lose their ACMG press credentials and be removed from the list to receive embargoed copies of ACMG news releases.
