Abstract Presentation
Accepted abstracts will be posted in full length on this website and on the conference app one week prior to the conference. Poster board dimensions and other information will be provided in email correspondence to the abstract presenters. The organizers will provide poster numbers and pushpins.
From the accepted abstracts, authors of highly rated abstracts will be invited to deliver oral short talk presentations of their work.  All abstracts will be considered.  Instructions will be sent to the ABSTRACT PRESENTERS with the date, time, and format for these presentations. If abstract authors do not receive a short talk invitation, then their abstract has not been selected by the abstract review committee.

Poster Awards
At the meeting, all poster entries will be judged by an international judging panel to select the 2019 Poster Award winners. The winners will be honored during the 2019 CIMT Social Event on May 22. The Social Event participation fee for poster award winners will be waived/reimbursed.

Abstract Format Information

As a guideline, the abstract text should not exceed a maximum of 3,000 characters (incl. spaces). Please submit text only. Double-check all your special characters. SI units should be used throughout (liter and molar are permitted, however). Abbreviations should be used as sparingly as possible. They should be defined when first used.

All accepted abstracts will be presented as posters during the meeting. From all accepted entries, the abstract committee will select abstracts to be presented as short-talks. Please indicate during abstract submission whether you would prefer to only present a poster or, if selected, to give a short talk as well.

At the conference, you will be provided with a 1m (width) x 1.5m (height) bulletin board for your poster. Authors selected to present in the short-talk sessions will have 10 minutes for presentation and an additional 5 minutes for discussion. All accepted abstracts will be made available online.
