All submitted abstracts are reviewed anonymously based on scientific strength, methodology and the data provided, as well as on the novelty/originality of the findings.

Guidelines for late-breaking abstract submissions
A late breaking abstract should contain new and exciting information that was not yet available at the regular abstract submission February deadline. The late-breaking abstract deadline is not an extension of the regular abstract submission deadline.
You can submit your late breaking abstract online. All submitted late-breaking abstracts will be forwarded to the Scientific Programme Committee for their consideration. A notification regarding acceptance or rejection will be sent to the presenting author of the abstract before the end of July 2013.
For your information, the acceptance rate of the 1st round abstracts is around 80%. The acceptance rate for the late-breaking abstracts is under 50%.
For the first round, when submitting an abstract you could apply for an Abstract Grant to travel to the ERS Annual Congress, and for ERS Sponsorship.
