Please register online, or by phone, fax or mail. Indicate that you would like to present a poster. (Speakers, please contact the Poster Coordinator. Sponsors and Exhibitors, please refer to your Exhibitor Kit or contact the Poster Coordinator.)
Once your registration has been fully processed, we will send an email with a unique link and instructions for submitting your abstract using our online abstract submission tool. If you do not receive your link within 5 business days, please contact the Poster Coordinator. Your registration must be paid in full and your abstract received by the conference’s poster deadline to be considered for a poster presentation. See below for approval guidelines. For select conferences, a special discount may be applied to your registration. If your abstract is not received and approved by the poster deadline, the discount will be reversed and your registration charged.
If you want to submit another abstract, you must request another link. (Please note, depending on space availability, we may limit the poster quantity to one per person.)
Please refer to the following guidelines when preparing your poster:
Cambridge Healthtech Institute reserves the right to publish your poster title and abstract, in whole or in part, in any CHI marketing materials or products, including but not limited to conference brochures, websites, program guides, speaker presentation links, CDs, DVDs, and CHI social networking sites.
* Please verify your content has proper patent and/or company approvals prior to submitting an abstract.
1. Your registration must be paid in full and your abstract received by the conference’s poster deadline to be considered for a poster presentation.
2. Abstract content should be scientific and relevant to the conference topic. Advertisements or solicitations will not be approved.
3. Abstracts should be one page printed type. This should include the title, co-authors and their affiliations, identifying each co-author to a particular affiliation with superscript, brackets or similar.
4. Some scientific characters/symbols (i.e. Greek letters) do not translate well to our system and should be substituted with the English equivalent. Tables (even tabbed columns) do not translate at all and should be limited to a single column list or left out completely. Images should also be omitted. Feel free to include these items in your actual poster.
Approval letters will be emailed approximately one week after the poster deadline. Notification can be sent earlier upon request.
Onsite Poster Information:
1. Posters should be portrait orientation, with maximum dimensions of 36 inches wide (3 feet) x 48 inches high (4 feet). (Note: For some conferences, special poster dimensions may apply. Please verify poster dimensions before printing your poster. Oversize posters may not fit. Poster dimensions are available on the specific conference’s Poster web page.)
2. You are responsible for transporting your poster to the conference and setting it up, which occurs during onsite registration. There are no printing facilities onsite. Posters are affixed with pushpins to the poster board. You are encouraged to bring a small supply of pushpins, as conference staff sometimes runs out of them. Velcro may also be used. Additionally, you are responsible for removing your poster from the exhibit space in a timely manner. CHI is not responsible for posters remaining in the exhibit space once the poster session closes.
3. Poster sessions usually occur in the exhibit hall. We do not assign specific time slots for individual poster presentations. Posters are accessible to attendees during the exhibit hours. Poster viewing and presentations generally occur during all refreshment breaks.
