[The abstract submission site is now closed; for detailed information on the poster session, visit the instructions for presenters page]
To reduce the chance of scheduling difficulties, you are restricted to a maximum of: one ISSRM oral presentation as the main author & presenter; one ISSRM poster presentation as the main author & presenter; and one ISSRM organized session in a speaking role. (You can, however, still be listed as a co-author on multiple presentations and posters.)
Scientific Poster Abstracts are due February 10th, 2012.
Poster presentations have some advantages over traditional scientific papers. They give more people time to review your work and to interact with you than would an oral presentation and facilitate the presentation of non-academic or applied work. At the 2012 ISSRM in Edmonton, the designated time slot for poster presentations will be on Monday, June 18 from 6:00 to 8:30 pm, during which time there will be no other sessions. Poster authors will be expected to be available for discussion and refreshments will be provided to encourage attendance. Posters on similar topics will be grouped together so that you have the opportunity to have discussions with other presenters who share your interests. A committee will award prizes for the best posters.
Poster presentation abstract submissions must:
- Specify the title, all of the authors, their affiliation, and their countries.
- Specify who the author to be contacted is, and her or his email address.
- Clearly state that you want to do a poster presentation.
- Provide a clear description of the topic, key research questions, and substantive results. This information should be less than 350 words in length.
Abstracts submitted after February 10th, 2012 will not be accepted!
Individuals will be restricted to only one ISSRM poster presentation as the main author & presenter; however, they may be listed as a co-author on more than one poster. We also encourage participants to consider alternative forms of communication and research dissemination (panel discussions, etc.).
If your poster abstract is accepted, you will be notified as such the week of March 19th, 2012.
