Posters should be mounted between 8:30 and 9:25am and must be removed by 4:00pm.  Presenters must be available to answer questions during the poster session.  Poster numbers will be assigned and will be available the morning of the retreat at the registration table.

  • Abstracts must be submitted online by the presenting author in Microsoft Word (only).

  • Include title of abstract, name and degree of all authors (bold and underline the name of the presenting author), and institutional affiliation (author name should be preceded by a superscript number corresponding to their home institution).
  • The abstract may not exceed 300 lines and should include text only - no figures, text boxes, graphs or references.
  • Font should be Arial 11 point. Text should be single spaced.
  • Save file name of uploaded abstract with presenting author name (ex. lastname_firstname).

All abstracts will be accepted and will be available online.  Authors should consider whether sensitive or unpublished findings are appropriate for such distribution.
