Abstract Presentation Guidelines

Thank you for submitting your science to SCAI 2024 Scientific Sessions

The information below pertains to only invited abstract presenters. Presenting authors have been notified and informed of their assigned poster or podium presentation.

Poster Presenters

As a poster presenter, you are required to prepare a printed poster and display it at your assigned time. As an option, you may also prepare a PDF of your poster and upload the PDF in the Speaker Service Center. The text of your abstract will be available in the meeting app two weeks before the conference start date, and if you choose to upload a PDF of your poster, this will also be available in the meeting app. 

All abstract poster presenters must register for the meeting with the complimentary access code provided in your acceptance email. Please see additional details and instructions below. 

SCAI has partnered with FedEx Office to offer a special discount on the SCAI 2024 Scientific Sessions Posters. Submit your order here. All posters ordered through this site will be delivered to the Long Beach Convention Center and will be available for pick up at the Poster Check in Desk, in SCAI Central, Exhibit Hall A, starting on Thursday, May 2, 8:30 am. For questions, call 562-495-5767 or email usa0328@fedex.com.

Poster Specifications 

  • Printed posters are MANDATORY. Complimentary registration for the poster presenter is conditional on your poster being displayed during your assigned poster time. You will be charged the registration fee if you attend and do not display your poster. 
  • The allowable size of the poster is 45” wide and 45” high. You must keep your poster 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, including the background, methods, results, and conclusion. 
  • Please include the title of the abstract, your name, and institution on the poster. 
  • Please note that we cannot allow poster presenters to make special requests for date or time of the presentation. All presentation dates are final. 

Poster Set-up and Take-Down 

  • Please arrive 10-15 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 Theater Presenters 

Congratulations on being selected as a featured abstract. You are invited to prepare a 5-minute PowerPoint presentation.
