Abstract Numbers
Abstracts presented in oral abstract sessions are numbered according to each session, beginning with an "OS". Abstracts presented in poster sessions are assigned numbers based on the day they are presented, the session they are a part of, and their location in the poster hall. Poster abstracts will feature a prefix including a letter denoting the day of presentation (M=Monday, T=Tuesday, W=Wednesday). The number following the prefix indicates the board number in the poster hall on which the abstract will be posted. For example, a poster number of T-145 indicates that the abstract will be presented as a poster on Tuesday, 8 September on board number 145.

Posters will be located in the Congress Hall foyer. Each poster is up for a one-day period.

Please be sure your poster is up before 9:00 each morning. Supplies for mounting your poster can be found in the poster hall. We ask that you take your poster down by 19:00 each evening. If you do not, your poster will be removed and placed to the side of the room. Posters not claimed by the end of the Congress will be discarded.

Hours for the Poster Hall:
