Late-Breaker Sessions

THE UNION/CDC LATE-BREAKER SESSION ON TB

The Union World Conference on Lung Health 2022 and the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are pleased to announce a late-breaker session related to tuberculosis (TB). This year, the Union Conference will be held virtually.

This late-breaker session includes all aspects of TB prevention, diagnosis and treatment research (including basic and clinical science, epidemiology, social, behavioural, and health care delivery). Given the global COVID-19 pandemic, we will also consider select presentations that explore the intersection of COVID-19 and TB prevention and programmatic implementation. It will consist of 7 pre-recorded oral presentations of 8 minutes each and live Q&A at the end of the session. 

In keeping with the spirit of a late-breaker session, we ask that only new, innovative and significant findings of broad interest that have occurred after 12 May, or for which information has just become available, be submitted for the late-breaker sessions.

Abstract Submissions

Late-breaker abstract submissions will open on 18 July. Deadline is 16 August.

All abstracts must follow the abstract submission guidelines. Abstracts must include specific results. Abstracts that do not contain specific results, or that were previously submitted to this conference, will be disqualified.

During the submission process, the persons submitting abstracts will be required to provide:

  • Confirmation that the work has not been previously submitted for consideration to the general portion of the Union Conference
  • The date by which the work and analysis was mostly completed
  • The address, phone and e-mail address where the author may be contacted

All submitted abstracts will be scored by multiple peer reviewers and the highest scoring abstracts will be selected for presentation. Persons submitting abstracts will be notified of acceptance or non-acceptance of their abstract by 5 September. Note that decisions of the abstract review committee are final and cannot be appealed.

Even though the conference will be virtual this year, presenters will be required to be available on the date and time of their session presentation to engage with the audience for a Q&A session. The specific date and time of the session will be communicated in July.

A limited number of sponsored registrations are available for accepted presenters from LMIC.
