Although the posters are not designed for basic science, abstracts that consider unknown MOA (mode of action) of medications or pathophysiology of related medical conditions may be accepted.   

Abstract Poster Presentations
Abstracts may be submitted for poster presentation. If selected for poster presentation, the author(s) or presenter(s) are required to register for the Congress and to be present during the poster sessions. The presenter in attendance must be one of the authors listed in the abstract. 


Abstract Oral Presentations
Four of the highest-ranking abstracts will be selected for the Abstract Oral Presentation Session. In some cases, the committee may consider Late-Breaking Abstracts for oral presentation. The authors of the winning abstracts will present their research findings in a 10-minute presentation, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A. If selected, an author is required to register for the meeting and to be prepared with a PowerPoint presentation. Oral presenters who have an interest or involvement in selling a technology, program, product, and/or service to healthcare professionals must submit an official disclosure document to be considered for and to present their work at the abstract oral session.   ​
