All AIAMC members are invited to submit abstracts for poster presentation at our 2018 Annual Meeting, to be held April 5th thru 7th at the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad (San Diego), California. A selection committee made up of AIAMC members serving on the 2018 Annual Meeting Planning Committee will choose posters for oral presentation and/or staffed display. Abstracts are due no later than September 15, 2017. All submitting authors will be notified of the committee’s decision by mid-October.


Criteria for Selection:

Introduction: clearly articulated context for project or research study, including relevant literature

Hypothesis/Aim Statement: clearly stated purpose of the project or research study

Methods: clear description of how the project was conducted and/or implemented, with sound and appropriate project design

All accepted poster presenters are required to register for the conference. Please do NOT submit an abstract if your attendance at the Annual Meeting is questionable. Accepted posters will be on display for the entire conference, i.e., from Thursday, April 5th thru Saturday, April 7th. On Saturday morning, April 7th, the top abstracts chosen for oral presentation will be presented in a “poster slam” format, followed by a staffed poster display of all posters accepted. Poster presenters are asked to make travel plans accordingly.
