Call for 2017 Poster Presentations
Share your expertise! The Association of Educators in Imaging and Radiologic Sciences invites you to submit a proposal to present a poster presentation at the 2017 AEIRS Annual Meeting being held at The Chase Park Plaza in Saint Louis Missouri.
Posters are research reports summarizing information using written statements and graphic materials, such as graphs, charts, figures and photographs and are an excellent mechanism to facilitate the communication of imaging and radiologic science research. They should visually guide viewers through the basics of the study displayed while the presenter focuses on explanation and clarification of the key elements of the work and answers viewer questions. The poster presentation format is less formal and more interactive than an oral platform presentation because it provides the opportunity for viewers to engage in discussion and to have one-on-one interactions with both fellow reviewers and the presenter. As a result, poster presentations offer the potential for new collaborations to develop among colleagues.
For more information, please see the attached AEIRS Poster Presentation Guidelines and Poster Application.
A total of ten posters will be accepted for presentation at the 2017 Annual Meeting. The submission deadline is January 1, 2017. Submit your completed poster application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
