Poster Information


EMBARGO

All accepted abstracts (unless withdrawn by the official withdraw date) for the AMP Annual Meeting & Expo are embargoed until the first day of poster presentations at the Annual Meeting. The embargo means that the information contained in the abstract cannot be presented or published on any national or international forum (online or print) other than The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics (JMD) prior to the first day of poster presentations at the AMP Annual Meeting & Expo.


    POSTER FORMAT REQUIREMENTS

    Each accepted abstract will be required to present a Printed Poster and upload an ePoster. Please see below for format requirements and general information.

    Required Elements of the poster are as follows:

    • Introduction: a brief discussion of the background or rationale of the study and/or the question addressed
    • Materials and Methods: the experimental approach, materials, and methods used in the study
    • Results: the data and results obtained in the study
    • Conclusions: the conclusions and/or implications of the results

    Including the Abstract is optional unless the scientific content has been altered since its submission. If substantive changes to the data and/or conclusions have been made since the abstract was submitted, the following must accompany the poster presentation:

    1. A clear notice in the poster content stating that the abstract has been revised since submission, and
    2. The revised abstract must either be printed on the poster itself or posted as a separate document on the poster board.

    Printed Poster Format

    Poster Size Requirement: All posters must be no larger 4 ft (122 cm) high x 6 ft (1.8 meters) wide. AMP reserves the right to remove posters that exceed the size requirement.

    • All Posters should be in LANDSCAPE (horizontal) format  
    • The aspect ratio (ratio of width to height) should ideally be set to 16:9. This is now the default aspect ratio in the newer versions of PowerPoint. If you’re using PowerPoint 2010 or older, you will have to change the aspect ratio from 4:3 to 16:9. (Design tab -> Page Setup -> “Slides sized for:” -> Choose “On-screen Show (16:9)”)
