View some fantastic posters from the 2014 CIMT Annual Meeting on F1000 Posters. More than 321 abstracts were presented at CIMT 2014.

F1000Posters is an open access repository that provides a permanent, structured environment for the deposition of posters and slide presentations as well as a trustworthy venue for ongoing discussion and development of the information being presented.
The early scientific information presented in conference presentations is universally agreed to be an important resource but, unfortunately, it is almost always completely lost once a conference is over. As a result, the work is only viewed by a handful of people before it disappears, either forever or until the research is later published as a paper. F1000Posters enables researchers to maximize the value of their presented work by dramatically increasing access and by helping to prevent lengthy delays before others can benefit from new research. The feedback gained by scientists from such early dissemination may help direct future work and also may reduce the duplication of effort between labs and departments, whether by speeding progress towards a similar goal or by preventing the replication of work that has previously failed.
