Embargo Policy

Accepted abstracts are embargoed until 5:00 PM EDT on Tuesday, May 5, 2020. This means that information regarding any abstract submission may not be released before this time. Failure to honor embargo policies will result in the abstract being withdrawn and barred from presentation.

Accepted Late-Breaking Clinical Trials abstracts are embargoed until 8:00 AM EDT Friday May 8, 2020. For more information, please contact media@HRSonline.org.

The Heart Rhythm Society reserves the right to alter embargo times at its discretion. All press materials on presentations and Late-Breaking Clinical Trials must have the abstract number as well as the date and time of the embargo prominently displayed at the top of the press release. Press releases may be issued in the months prior to Heart Rhythm 2020 Science, but the release must not in any way reveal the data or study results. If the study results are reported prior to the embargo date and time, the abstract is subject to removal from Heart Rhythm 2020 Science.
