The deadline to submit abstracts has passed. Thank you for your entries!

Abstract Guidelines

Poster Presentations

The dimension of the poster easel is 8 feet wide (122 cm) by 4 feet high (244 cm). Therefore, the suggested poster size is a maximum of 42 inches (106 cm) wide/horizontal by a maximum of 47 inches (119 cm) high/vertical (a portrait format). Each easel therefore will hold two posters.
Your display should include the title, author(s), and your abstract.

You have complete freedom to display your information as text, figures, tables, and photographs. Suggested guidelines for organizing the presentation would include abstract, introduction, brief description of procedures and materials, results, and discussion as topic headings. Trade names may be initially defined, but generic names should subsequently be used throughout.

The poster must cover the same material as your approved abstract.

You are responsible for delivering your poster to the meeting site, mounting the poster on the easel prior to the session, and taking the poster down at the conclusion of the poster session.

Poster numbers will be published in the final program brochure, available online shortly before the meeting.


Oral Presentation

Twelve minutes are allowed for the oral presentations, which includes time for any questions from those in attendance. Therefore, you should plan your formal presentation to last approximately 10 minutes. This will allow the program to remain on schedule should any questions be asked. Strict adherence to time limits is mandatory as a courtesy to those that follow and will be strictly enforced.

Presentations must be submitted in digital format as indicated in the final acceptance letter.

Room assignments, including oral presentation number, will be published on the meeting web site.
