Oral Presentations

Sessions are 30 or 60 minutes in length and should allow for discussion time. This is a competitive process and all abstracts may not be accepted for oral presentations. Additionally, in some instances, the committee may only be able to afford a 30 minute time slot when a 60 minute slot is requested. Oral presentation abstracts not selected may be afforded the opportunity to instead present with a poster session.

Presentations with more than three speakers must send additional speaker information to kylie.nissen@med.und.edu.

Submit an Oral Presentation abstract

Poster Presentations

Poster presentation sessions occur during one 45 minute session the first day of the Conference, and two 30-minute sessions the second day. The designated time for Conference participants to visit posters is also the time they are allowed to visit Conference exhibits. In the event that there is more than one author on a poster, only one author (the presenter) is required to register for the conference and be in attendance during the poster session times.

Failure to display a selected poster presentation at the Conference will result in an automatic $50.00 cancelation fee and will jeopardize the selection of future abstracts for both oral and poster presentations. Penalties may not apply under extenuating circumstances that are approved by the planning committee prior to the start of the Conference.

Posters with more than three authors must send additional speaker information to kylie.nissen@med.und.edu.
