Poster Sessions (abstract-driven)
To encourage scientific discussions and to facilitate the exchange of information,
posters are grouped by related topics, keyword (selected by the first author at the
time of abstract submission), and alphabetical order by the last name of the first
author. The first author listed is the presenting author. The program number and the
abstract/poster board number are one and the same. It appears in bold print followed
by the abstract title and author names. Each number is followed by a
Thursday), or
Friday)to indicate the day on which authors must be present at
their poster board. Each author is expected to be present for one of the two hours
during that day. The posters are expected to remain on the boards for all three poster
sessions. See page 125 for poster mounting/removal schedule and presentation
times. Poster listings begin on page 127.
