posted on July 17, 2018

All AIAMC members are invited to submit abstracts for poster presentation at our 2019 Annual Meeting, to be held March 28th – 30th at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson, Arizona.  A selection committee made up of AIAMC members serving on the 2019 Annual Meeting Planning Committee will choose posters for oral presentation and/or staffed display. Abstracts are due no later than September 14, 2018. 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

Results: clear and unambiguous statement of what changed and how

Conclusions: implications of the project beyond the local setting

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, March 28th thru Saturday, March 30th. On Saturday morning, March 30th, 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. In accordance with AIAMC policy, all registration fees and travel expenses will be the responsibility of the presenter’s home institution. Submitting an abstract is a commitment that, if the abstract is accepted, all poster presenters will attend the 2019 Annual Meeting and conduct sessions at the times assigned.
