A Scientific Presentation may be given as a traditional podium presentation performed in PowerPoint, or as a poster. Abstract submitters will be notified at the time of their acceptance which type of presentation their abstract has been accepted for. During the abstract submission process you will be asked if you would like your abstract to be considered as a “Podium presentation or Poster” or as “Poster-Only”. Those marked “Podium presentation or Poster” will FIRST be considered as a podium presentation; only those that are not accepted as a podium presentation will be then considered as a poster. PLEASE do not duplicate your abstract in both the podium presentation and the poster.

More details will be provided at the time of abstract acceptance.


The podium presenter will present for 5 minutes which will be followed by a few minutes of discussion led by the moderator at the end of the session.
