Poster Session General Guidelines

The 5th Annual Vesalius Trust Poster Session will take place at the AMI 2012 Toronto meeting: This opportunity is open to all 2012 Vesalius Trust Applicants, regardless of scholarship status. This would also be in ADDITION to but NOT REQUIRED for the presentations given by invited awardees at a concurrent Vesalian Scholars Session. The Vesalius Trust is excited to continue to bring to the AMI Continuing Education in the form of current an ongoing research, especially from those who are just entering the field, bringing with them the newest contributions to the disciplines of art, science, and technology. We look forward to giving students the opportunity to present in a formal professional setting, to share, collaborate, network, learn and contribute overall. ALL APPLICANTS are invited to participate in the poster session component. Applicants who would like to participate in this opportunity must be present at the meeting.

Due to finite space, we must limit presenters to a 3′ x 4′ poster. By submitting a poster to the Vesalius Trust Poster Session, participants certify that the poster is their original work; or original work conducted by the participant and other authors, and any co-authors are appropriately credited for their contribution and have been informed of the submission.

Only one poster will be allowed per VT poster presenter. Multiple posters received from the same student will all be automatically rejected. Once a poster is submitted to for printing to the VT, it cannot be modified (i.e., an updated version will not be accepted later, even if before the submission deadline). Please thoroughly proofread your abstract before submitting it.
