  Poster Sessions and Presentations

One author or colleague must be present at your poster during the assigned poster session time on the day of your presentation to explain your research and answer questions from viewers. Poster session assignments cannot be rescheduled. Posters displayed on a day or on a board to which it is not assigned will be removed without prior notice.

  Poster Set-up and Removal

All posters must be set-up between 07:00 - 08:00 on the day of the presentation. Posters must be removed the same day as the presentation – any posters that are not removed will be discarded.

Poster Schedule

  Locating your assigned poster board

The abstract number will determine the location of where you will display your poster, and will also correspond with your abstract in the final publication. All poster boards will be clearly labeled with the appropriate abstract number prior to set-up.

Abstracts are grouped by category and numbered consecutively within each poster session.


All regular abstracts presented at the PAS Congress are embargoed until 8:00 (EST) on the day of presentation. Late-Breaking abstracts are embargoed until Friday, February 14, at 8:00 (EST).
