Abstract submissions for poster presentations at the 5th Annual Sport Concussion Symposium in Cleveland, Ohio on April 28-29, 2017 are now closed
Review, Selection, and Status Notification: Submissions will be selected on the basis of merit by means of blind review. Authors will be notified of the outcome of their submission via email on or about Monday, March 20, 2017.
Poster Presentations: PLEASE NOTE NEW POSTER DIMENSIONS AND ORIENTATION FOR THIS MEETING. For the 2017 SNS meeting, we will be a new sized poster board, so poster dimensions will be different than previous SNS meetings. The poster boards will be VERTICAL or PORTRAIT orientation (instead of landscape as in previous years),
MAXIMUM POSTER SIZE: Your finished, printed poster should measure no more than 34.25 inches in width by 46 inches in height (or no more than 87 cm width by approximately 116 cm height). This will leave some space on all sides of your poster, which will make it easier to mount and will help ease crowding (as two authors will be sharing each poster board).
POSTER SESSIONS: The poster sessions will take place on Friday April 28, from 4:45 to 7:00 PM, along with a welcome reception. A presenter or designated representative must be present at the poster session and are expected to remain with the poster to entertain questions. Poster authors are encouraged to bring copies of their abstract or a handout for interested viewers.
ON-SITE INSTRUCTIONS: Posters will be collected at the Registration desk until the 2:55-3:15 PM break in the Symposium Schedule, and posters will be mounted for you. Thumb-tacks will be available for you on-site. Otherwise, please report to the poster hall no earlier than 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start of your session to mount your poster. A volunteer will be available near the entrance to the poster hall to distribute approved fasteners. Upon your arrival, please refer to the final program to confirm your FINAL poster board number. Please note that your Poster Board Number may change prior to the meeting, so please confirm this on-site as directed.
