Abstract Presentation Guidelines | SCAI

Abstract Presentation Guidelines

This information only applies to invited abstract poster presenters who have been notified of their assigned poster or podium presentation.

Poster Presenters

As a poster presenter, you must prepare and display a printed poster at your assigned time. You may also create a PDF of your poster and upload it at the Speaker Service Center. The PDF will then be available on the meeting app.

All Abstract Poster Presenters must register for the meeting with your complimentary access code provided in your acceptance email. Please see additional details and instructions below.

Poster Specifications

  • Printed posters are MANDATORY. Complimentary registration for poster presenters is conditional upon the display of posters at their assigned time. You will be charged the registration fee if you attend the conference and do not display your poster.
  • The allowable size of the poster is 45” wide and 45” high. Your poster must keep within these dimensions. There will be two posters on each side of a poster board.
  • It is recommended that you include your full-text abstract on the poster, which includes the background, methods, results, and conclusion.
  • Please include the title of the abstract, your name, and your institution on the poster. 
  • Please note that we cannot allow poster presenters to make special requests for a date or time of their presentation. All presentation dates are final. 

FedEx Poster Printing

SCAI will be partnering with FedEx Office (201 E Washington St, Ste 101, Phoenix, AZ 85004) to offer a discounted printing price for posters. FedEx will be offering a 42"x42" basic matte poster print available for $59.99: other finishes will also be available. The link to order will be available in late March; please check back for the link. 

Poster Set-up and Take-Down

  • Please arrive 10–15 minutes before your scheduled poster session time to hang your poster (see below for session times). 
  • Please take down your poster immediately after your scheduled poster session time ends. 
  • DO NOT leave your poster or holder on the floor in the poster area. We cannot guarantee the security and safety of your poster. If you leave your poster on the floor unattended, it may be discarded. 

Featured Abstract Stage Presenters 

Congratulations on being selected as a Featured Abstract. In ADDITION to your printed poster, you are also invited to prepare a 4-minute PowerPoint presentation. You will present your abstract in the Exhibit Hall during your assigned presentation time. You may also upload a copy of your PPT presentation at the Speaker Service Center. The PPT will then be made available on the meeting app.

All Abstract Presenters must register for the meeting with your complimentary access code provided in your acceptance email.

Please contact Rachel Pham if you have any questions about your presentation.
