These posters will be presented at the 2019 North America Conference,
and the 2019 European Conference.
Poster presenters will receive one $50 discount to the meeting of their choice. Details will be provided once the committee has determined which proposals have been accepted for poster presentation.
For guidance on developing a poster, click here to see our webinar "Demystifying the Poster Process." Poster Committee members Alethea Gerding, Jason Roberts, and Kurt Spurlock describe the types of posters, how to develop and present ideas, and other details of the poster process.
Poster topics from the 2018 posters included, among others:
- The questions authors ask: A survey of three peer-reviewed journals;
- Researchers' sharing behaviours: piloting a new "shareable PDF" to leverage authors' use of scholarly collaboration networks and reclaim "lost” usage ; and
- Creating Gold Standards for Peer Review

Are you interested in presenting a poster at this year’s annual conferences but aren’t quite sure where to begin? Do you have an idea for a case study or research project? We now have two official category types (case study and research project) and welcome you to think of a proposal for either category. Examples of each category can be found online [here]. 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 April 30, 2019.
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 May 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.
Instead of first and second place prizes, there will now be a first-place winner selected from each category: case studies and research projects. The first place winner from each category will receive complimentary registration to both conferences. 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 2019 issue of EON (to view the 2018 issue click here), which is freely available as an online reference, and all posters will be posted to the ISMTE website.
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 must be provided electronically to ISMTE by June 29, 2019.
For questions, please email email@example.com.
