Poster Presenter Information
The 2021 Annual Assembly will include 400+ posters presented via a dynamic and interactive platform. All posters will be on display in our ePoster Gallery for registered attendees to view beginning the week of November 8th.

These presentations will be presented live in Nashville, please refer to the meeting agenda for specific times.
If you would like to change the presenting author, contact email@example.com by Wednesday, September 15, 2021. Only listed co-authors are eligible to present research.
The following guidelines will ensure that your work is presented in the most rewarding and effective manner.
Poster's should be a stand-alone, self-explanatory display, allowing viewers to read on their own. Every electronic poster should lend itself to presenting information in a self-explanatory format. The time spent at a poster is determined by the viewer; an effective poster will have a good balance of easy-to-see figures, graphics, and text.
- Length - A single 16:9 PowerPoint Presentation Slide in PDF format.
- Font - Suggest Times New Roman, Calibri or Arial.
- Minimum Font Size - 8
- Review the Electronic Poster Guidelines for assistance with formatting.
- Heading - A heading for the top of the poster should be prepared indicating: (1) title, the same as that of the abstract submitted, (2) author(s), and (3) institutional affiliation of the author(s).
- Content - An abstract of your research should be included in the upper left corner of the poster board.
- Graphics - Graphic material, tables and illustrations should be as simple as possible. Numbers or arrows to indicate the viewing sequence are of great assistance to viewers. Photos should have a matte finish.
- QR Codes - A QR code can be include if they direct participants to clinical content and are not promotional.
