Deadline: March 12, 2012
Submit your Abstract!
E-posters (electronic posters) will continue to be the format for displaying scientific posters. These are a great for presenting scientific material – either laboratory or clinical – where an active exchange between the author and the attendee is desired. E-poster displays are the perfect medium for unusual or multiple clinical case presentations. There are many benefits to having an eposter displayed – more room for creativity, ability to incorporate multi-media (i.e., video), and additional space for content.
Download the Poster Presentation Call for Abstracts
All abstracts that are accepted as an e-poster will be available for viewing at designated viewing stations in the exhibit hall during the Annual Meeting. Some poster presenters will also be asked to display a standard poster in addition to the e-poster. More details and guidelines will be available upon acceptance.
IMPORTANT: If your abstract is a good candidate for either a Paper/Podium presentation OR an E-poster Display please submit your abstract under the Paper / Scientific Session Abstract activity. There will be an option to indicate your preference as “paper or poster.” Please DO NOT submit your abstract as a Paper and again under the Poster section.
Abstracts should be 400 words or less and must briefly state the hypothesis of the study, describe the materials/methods used, report the results, as well as the statistical treatment accorded the data and summarize the research findings. The summary should not be a traditional ‘discussion’ but rather a prioritized, bulleted statement that indicate the study’s significance, value and clinical relevance in relation to the existing knowledge on the topic. Abstracts may include up to two graphic attachments (i.e. tables, illustrations and pictures). A total of six authors (including the primary/presenting author) can be listed on any abstract. Each abstract MUST include the following section labels within the abstract text: Hypothesis, Methods, Results, and Summary Points. Level of Evidence is also collected at the time of abstract submission and will be reviewed by the Evidence Based Practice Committee. The committee reserves the right to change the level submitted based on their review.
