What You Will Need to Submit a Poster:

  1. A title for your submission with no more than 130 characters—including spaces and punctuation. Use mixed-case letters and appropriate punctuation in your title. No period at the end of a title.
  2. Two review panel choices.
  3. Focal Areas and Aspects as directed on the Submission Website.
  4. Unique Identification for Each Person: (a) Enter the affiliation first; (b) then enter a complete, formal name—rather than a nickname and (c) a current email address. Please DO NOT use all upper-case letters when entering this information. Establishing a unique identity for each person ensures that he/she receives both Author Information Verification email messages and decision status notification.
    Author Information Verification. (1) Every time a person is included on a submission, he/she is notified of this inclusion and sent login information via email so that contact information can be kept up-to-date. (2) After the final submission of a presentation, every person associated with that submission receives a status notification email message. Thus, an author may receive multiple emails if included on several submissions, but need only complete the verification process once.
  5. Enter your “group author” (consortium, program, etc.—NOT funding support) in the “Additonsal Details” step on the Submission Website.
  6. An abstract with a maximum of 500 words (3780 characters with spaces). Your abstract must be typed or copied and pasted into the Submission Website; no file uploads are allowed.
    1. Use standard reference citations (last name, year) and do not include a reference list.
    2. Do not include names or other identifying information or research support in your abstract. If you are required to acknowledge research support, do this during the presentation if your submission is accepted for the program.
  7. Graphics are encouraged, but are optional; they do not count toward the maximum word count for your abstract. Tables /figures may be uploaded in GIF, JPG, or TIF format. The two graphics allowed may be:
    • 2 tables, or
    • 2 figures, or
    • 1 table plus 1 figure.
