Chair and Vice-chair, Annual Meeting Scientific Committee
The presentation of new science and research is one of the main attractions at every Annual Meeting. This year there was a record-breaking total of 2,874 abstract submissions.
Digital and paper posters will be on display in Hall D during the poster viewing hours:
- Sunday, September 14 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
- Monday, September 15 10:00 a.m. - 6:45 p.m.
- Tuesday, September 16 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
We are very excited regarding the new format for the digital poster presentation sessions, based on feedback that we received. Each year, we look for ways to enhance and fine tune the various scientific sessions based on feedback from our members and we will continue to do so moving forward.
This year’s digital poster discussion sessions will be held in the Poster Hall. Sessions will begin with 15 minutes of poster viewing on monitors located outside of the session room. Attendees and presenters will then move into the session room to hear brief four-minute oral presentations from each poster presenter, highlighting key “take home” messages. The session will end with discussant presentations that compare, contrast and tie the abstracts together. The sessions will take advantage of touch-screen technology to present more in-depth information, and the monitor structure has been redesigned to allow for easier viewing and discussion with colleagues.
Stop by the poster reception on Monday, September 15, from 5:30 p.m. – 6:45 p.m. in Hall D. During this time, poster presenters are available to answer questions and discuss their research. Poster award winners are presented their awards at the beginning of this session, and they will provide a short oral presentation of their abstract in the poster presentation area within the hall. Respond to this blog with suggestions or ideas to enhance the poster sessions or to let us know what you think about these changes.
