Types of Abstract Presentations
Poster sessions are abstracts that have been selected and grouped together by category/topics. Poster presentations give authors an opportunity to acquaint attendees and experts in the field with the fundamentals of their abstracts and research. Presenting authors are required to be present at their poster boards for one and a half hours on assigned dates.
The presenting author is expected to discuss his or her scientific research and summarize the data into a comprehensive 10-minute presentation, with five minutes designated for questions and answers. Presenting authors are required to use PowerPoint slides to accompany their oral presentations.
Please be patient it may take up to two minutes for the link to open.
