The deadline for poster abstract submissions is January 18, 2021. Abstract submissions are limited to 250 words or less. Selected poster presenters will be notified in mid-February 2021. 

Virtual Poster Format: To ensure all aspects of your poster are viewable on a computer screen, presenters should create a “5-slide poster” instead of a traditional 36 x 48 inch poster. Posters will be accessible during the entire conference, so presenters should also be prepared to pre-record a short elevator pitch to accompany their poster, invite questions, and facilitate discussion. More instructions on how to prepare your 5-slide poster and elevator pitch will be provided if your poster abstract is accepted. 

Throughout the conference week, attendees can leave written questions/comments that the presenter can respond to at any time. Presenters are expected to be “at” their poster for live Q&A sessions that will take place on March 22, 2021 from 12:00 – 1:00 pm and March 24, 2021 from 4:00 – 5:00 PM PST. Each poster presenter will have their own virtual “room” to allow for chat or audio/video conversations during the live Q&A sessions.

Registration for the conference is required for all poster presenters. Presenters will be responsible for paying their own conference registration fees. Registration grants are available on a rolling basis for students, early-career academics, and early career professionals. If you haven’t already, submit your application here to secure a grant!
