ACMG Annual Meeting Embargo Policy

All meeting attendees, presenters, authors, the media, exhibitors, institutions, industry and all other organizations and individuals are required to abide by the ACMG Annual Meeting Embargo Policy.

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 Violation of the ACMG Embargo Policy may result in the abstract being withdrawn from the meeting and other measures deemed appropriate may be taken.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.

Specific Embargo Dates and Times:
Abstracts – Embargoed until February 10, 2023; posted on the ACMG Meeting website

Accepted abstracts will be made available online in advance of the ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting and will also be published in a special online supplement to our official open access journal, Genetics in Medicine Open. The information contained in abstracts is embargoed until the abstracts are available and published online. Information contained in abstracts may not be released in any format, including preprints, until the abstracts appear online.

ACMG continues to require that any information that goes beyond that contained in the submitted abstract is under embargo until the times specified below.

Posters – Embargoed until Wednesday, March 15, 2023, at 5:00 pm MT
For abstracts selected for posters, the embargo will lift when the e-posters are published via ACMG.

Oral (Platform) Scientific Presentations – Presentations embargoed until start of live session

The embargo for all scientific presentations will lift at the start time of the session in which the live presentation is being made. Interviews with presenters as well as any information to be presented for the first time at the ACMG Annual Meeting are embargoed until the time of the live presentation in which the paper will be given.
