Late-Breaking Abstracts Now Open

Late-Breaking submissions must be the results of a major clinical trial or epidemiological study. In order for your abstract to be considered for review, it must meet this criteria.

Deadline: February 1, 2022 at 11:59pm EST. This deadline will not be extended.


Late-Breaking Abstract Guidelines and Notes:

  • Authors will have access to the abstract template to enter in their research
  • Authors can work on their abstract as a draft and revisit before submitting
  • Abstracts allow up to 2500 characters which includes letters, spacing, title, authors, tables, charts, and images
  • If accepted, images will appear small in the journal (about the size of a postage stamp) and reduce 400 characters from the total count
  • Image files must be in jpeg or png file no larger than 2MB

Poster and E-Poster Guidelines

General submission abstract notifications have been distributed. Congratulations to all all accepted authors!


All accepted research publications have the option to display a physical poster at SCM22, upload an e-poster to the online gallery, or both. Note that e-poster upload will not be available until March, and authors who choose to display a physical poster are required to bring their poster on-site at SCM. Please see the resources below for more information.

Abstract Publication

NKF is pleased to announce the transition to electronic-only publication for the Physician, Nephrology Nurse and Technician, and Renal Dietitian abstracts.
All SCM abstracts will be published together as an e-only Supplement into the April issue of AJKD, allowing viewers to easily navigate through the abstracts.
This transition will increase visibility for all authors, while making it easier for learners and attendees to locate abstracts based on topic. Nephrology Social Work abstracts will still publish in the spring issue of JNSW.

Abstract Embargo

In compliance with the Securities and Exchange Commission's Regulation FD (Fair Disclosure), the accepted abstracts are made available to the public on the NKF website and are published in AJKD, ACKD, JRN, or JNSW (dependent on discipline) in advance of the meeting. Thus, the first release of the abstracts is a public release. Coverage of additional research being presented at the NKF Spring Clinical Meetings is under embargo until 8am on April 7, 2022.
Academic institutions, private organizations, and companies with products whose value may be influenced by information contained in an abstract may issue a press release to coincide with the availability of an abstract. However, the NKF continues to require that information that goes beyond that contained within the abstract, e.g., discussion of the abstract done as part of a scientific presentation, is to be embargoed until the start of the Meetings. Violation of this policy may result in the abstract being withdrawn from the meeting and other measures deemed appropriate. Journalists failing to abide by the embargo may have their press credentials revoked.
