Are you interested in presenting a poster at this year’s annual conferences? The first step is to submit a proposal that includes your poster’s title, objectives (three things someone will learn from your poster) and an abstract of 200 words or less (abstracts can be structured or unstructured). Poster proposals with or without outcomes will be considered. However, outcomes must be included within the completed poster. Mentors are once again available to help you develop your proposal and poster. Authors interested in this opportunity can state as such on the proposal submission site and you will be contacted by one of our mentors.
Submit your proposal online, click here, by Friday, April 6, 2018.
The ISMTE Poster Committee will review and judge your poster proposal based on three criteria: originality; significance and relevance to the field; and practicality and applicability. If your proposal meets the bar for acceptance, the chair of the Poster Committee will contact you with instructions by the end of March for how to prepare and submit your poster for the conference presentation. When all posters are received, the committee will determine the winners of the awards.
Presentation at Conferences
ISMTE will provide you with a template to help you design your poster. Although not mandatory, we encourage that you attend either the North American or European conference so you can talk about your poster with other attendees at the designated time. See the "Prize" section below for details on complimentary attendance to present your poster at one or all of the conferences.
The first-place winner will receive complimentary registration to both conference, and the second-place winner will receive complimentary registration to the conference of their choice. Complimentary registration can be used by the submitting author or transferred to a colleague who would present the work instead. The first-place winner can attend some or all-of the conferences and transfer the others to colleagues.
All poster abstracts will be published in an online supplement to the August 2018 issue of EON (to view the 2017 issue click here), which freely available online as a reference) and all posters will be posted to the ISMTE website.
Also new this year! Previously limited to North American Conference attendees, all ISMTE members will now have the opportunity to vote for their favorite poster, and the member-choice winner will be highlighted in a future issue of EON.
Please carefully consider if you will have the time to develop a poster from your proposal, if it is accepted for poster display. Accepted poster proposals are expected to be developed into subsequent posters for display. Notifications will be emailed in early May, with a provided poster template, and you would have approximately 2 months to develop your poster. All final posters much be provided electronically to ISMTE by June 29, 2018.
