If accepted, authors must notify AMP of their participation by emailing Emily Gibson at egibson@naccme.com and registering for the meeting. Please note: AMP will not hold or guarantee space for poster displays until notified of the author’s participation.

 

ABSTRACT PRESENTATION

All accepted abstracts will be poster presentations. The poster size should be no larger than 8' wide x 4' high (243 cm x 121 cm). The orientation for posters is horizontal.

 

POSTER NUMBERS

Poster numbers will be assigned in early July and primary contacts will be notified via email.

 

WITHDRAWAL POLICY

Acceptance of the abstract by the review committee obligates the author to be present. If circumstances prevent attendance, the author must arrange for the poster to be presented by a substitute, preferably a co-author. If you wish to withdraw your abstract, you must submit your request in writing by Friday, July 13, 2018 to egibson@naccme.com, including the abstract title and first author. Failure to comply may result in ineligibility for future AMP meeting abstract submissions as first author.

 

NO-SHOW POLICY

On rare occasions, presenters scheduled to present their poster fail to show up and have not notified AMP of their change in plans. When presenters do not appear to present their poster, the planning efforts of the Abstract Committee in providing a quality program are significantly diminished, there are significant cost implications, and the audience is unnecessarily disappointed with empty poster boards. Staff will audit all posters for no-shows, which may result in ineligibility for future AMP meetings.
