The poster should convey your key findings and be visually appealing. Posters must include the following:

  • Clear and concise title describing the content of the poster, including the author(s), including name(s) and affiliation(s).
  • A 25-50 word abstract that will summarize the main findings or message of the research.
  • Clear objectives of the research or work presented in the poster.
  • Materials and methods addressing the research work in a concise and informative way.
  • Results and discussions including figures and tables.
  • Conclusions that summarize the main findings of the research and its impact.

Project goals/objectives, methodology, results/findings, future work and other discussion should be presented in terms that can be understood by a technical and clinical audience. We encourage the use of tables, photographs, diagrams, charts, and other graphics to help convey important information.
