Guidelines for Poster Presentation

The poster session will be held virtually on September 18, 2020. The virtual poster session features electronic poster viewing, a pre-recorded video presentation, and an interactive chat function for Q&A with the presenters. Detailed instructions for poster presentation will be sent to the presenter upon acceptance of the abstract. We will also update the information here as it becomes available.

Guidelines for Poster Competition

During the poster session, there will be a competition for all non-faculty presenters to compete for Outstanding Poster Awards of the Forum, which consists of $200 prize and a Certificate. Up to 8 outstanding poster awards will be provided based on the quality of work and presentation.

To participate in the Poster Competition, the presenter of the poster must be the first author (non-faculty: a graduate or undergraduate student, postdoc, resident, or fellow) and available for the judges during the official poster viewing session. Each author can only submit one abstract for competition as the first author, but may co-author multiple abstracts.
