HOPA Annual Conference (Fort Worth, TX): April 3-6, 2019

HOPA will use the information provided in conference materials so please ensure that author names, credentials, and titles, are written accurately. Degrees and certifications provided will only be included in published material. Selected completed research abstracts will be published in a supplement issue of the Journal of Oncology Pharmacy Practice.

Final posters for selected research abstracts are required to be submitted prior to the Annual Conference for viewing of attendees. The deadline for ePosters is set typically one month prior to the Annual Conference. Should an institution have restrictions on the use of data in an online forum, please contact HOPA Education Coordinator, Laura Smith, at lsmith@hoparx.org for further instructions.

HOPA invites you to submit your research abstracts to present in the following topics at our next Annual Conference in Fort Worth, Texas:



Abstract authors do not need to be a HOPA member in order to be considered for a completed poster presentation at the HOPA Annual Conference. However, the presenting author must be a HOPA member and must also be the principal or co-principal investigator of the research in order to be considered for a platform presentation.

Research presented at other professional meetings will be considered for “Encore” presentations. Encore presentations are not eligible for HOPA abstract/poster awards or platform presentation of their work.

Abstracts must be the presenter’s original research. The author must be available to present during poster exhibition sessions and to discuss questions from participants. All authors should have;
1) provided substantial contributions to the conception or design of the project, or acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data; AND 
2) draft the work or critically revise it for intellectual content; AND 
3) provide final approval of abstract and poster; AND 
4) agree to be accountable for all aspects of work related to accuracy and integrity.

ePosters at Annual Conference

An electronic poster (ePoster) is an electronic submission of the poster presented at the annual meeting. Posters will be created according to the guidelines provided upon acceptance and upload an electronic copy to a specified website for reviewing. Final ePosters will be due approximately 2 weeks prior to the meeting to allow time for off-site review. Further details and information will be communicated with the accepted presenter regarding the electronic poster process upon notification of abstract acceptance. 

Responsibility for Expenses

The HOPA Annual Conference gives hematology/oncology pharmacy professionals the opportunity to present their work within an atmosphere of support by peers and national leaders. Presenters must register for at least the day on which they are scheduled to present. Only those presenters (or representatives) committed to attending the conference may submit an abstract. Presenters are responsible for all expenses such as travel, hotel, and meeting registration fees.

Avoidance of Commercialism

All presentations must avoid commercialism. Presentations that constitute promotion and advertising (including the use of logos) will not be considered. If the cost of any presentation has been underwritten to any extent, a clear acknowledgment stating the support, identifying the source, and describing the methods for keeping the content unbiased should be included. Advertising matter that in any way promotes the commercial interest of a particular company, enterprise, or the author(s) may not be distributed or displayed. Statements made in the presentation are the sole responsibility of the author and are not viewed as, or considered representative of, any formal position taken on any product, subject, or issued by HOPA.
