What is a Poster Presentation?

A Poster is a visual presentation of your research or clinical project.  Use schematic diagrams, graphs, tables and other strategies to direct the visual attention of the viewer, rather than writing text as you would for a journal article. 


The first step you want to take is to create your abstract. The person presenting the paper must be listed as the First Author, and that person is the only person who presents the poster, barring extenuating circumstances. There may only be one presenter per poster, although all authors may be present for the presentation. When multiple Abstracts are submitted, headings and authors names must remain consistent for proper indexing.


Please read the abstract instructions and guidelines thoroughly before beginning to write/layout your abstract.
