    NEW! Electronic Poster Viewing Session Format

    New for 2018, all poster viewing presentations will be displayed as electronic posters! Posters will be integrated into the Exhibit Hall in a new and exciting floorplan that will offer large, touchscreen monitors and an interactive format for all poster presenters. No more paper posters, tubes or poster printing!

    The electronic format will allow for:

    • Scheduled presentation times for each author in order to foster networking and improved visibility of individual posters, similar to Poster Q&A in 2017.
    • Integration of posters into Exhibit Hall; no separate poster hall.
    • Utilization of new technology to build better posters; including video and other graphics.
    • Elimination of paper posters, traveling with poster tube and poster waste. A nominal fee of $60 will be assessed for digital upload.
    • “Posters on Demand” feature, to search and view all posters at stations in the Exhibit Hall, on the mobile app and the Online Conference Planner, during and after the meeting.
