Abstract and Poster

Student participants are asked to submit an abstract and present a poster at the meeting.

Deadline for submission is March 22.

Abstracts will be reviewed by the scientific committee prior to the meeting; selected submissions will be invited to present as the meeting as part of the conference program.

When logged into your account on the website, you can add your abstract. To access the upload form, choose the "Edit" tab and the "Research" subtab on your profile.

All abstracts will be assigned to a poster session. Please check this site as the meeting approaches for your poster number and session.

Poster guidelines

Your poster should be a graphically oriented summary of your research project.

Registrants will be assigned a presentation time during one of the two poster sessions. Registrants are expected to stand at their posters during the assigned sessions to discuss their work with those interested.

Each poster presenter will be assigned to and will share a poster board. Each presenter will have a net useable space in portrait/vertical format that measures 115.82 cm. wide x 115.82 cm. tall (3’8” x 3’8”) – equivalent to 12 letter-page –sized pages in which to exhibit the poster. If your poster is oversized and does not meet the dimensions above, please notify us by April 20 so that we can ensure adequate space for your poster.

The posters do not need to be laminated. You may make the poster into a one page display, or you may use smaller sheets.

Push pins for poster mounting will be supplied at the meeting.

All posters should be set up on Sunday, April 21 between 2:00pm and 8:00pm and will remain on display for the duration of the meeting. Posters should be removed by 10am on Wednesday, April 24.
