Abstract Information

 Please note that poster titles and abstracts are due prior to posters and videos. Read below carefully so you do not miss your dates. Late entries will not be accepted. 

Further instructions will be sent by e-mail to all students planning to submit a poster, so it’s important that you check the box during the registration process that you are considering presenting a poster at the annual meeting.


The poster sessions will be held on Monday, August 16th at 3:30-4:30 PM EST, and Tuesday, August 17th at 3-4 PM EST. Poster presenters must be registered and presenter must be attending the session online at these times.

You are allotted and expected to pre-record a 2 minute video to speak about your poster and 2 minutes to answer questions in small poster rooms (10 – 12 posters) in your assigned time slot. There will be multiple concurrent “poster rooms” during each of the poster sessions.

Judges will be present in each of the poster rooms. Posters will be evaluated in advance to the poster competition (hence the due date is early). The poster competition will also consider your presentation and ability to answer questions.

Please contact Dr. Neha Kothari with further questions.

  • Posters: The recommended poster size is VERTICAL for everyone.
