Poster Sessions

WORLDSymposium 2019 abstract submission site will open July 1, 2018.

Last year, over 410 abstracts were presented at the two WORLDSymposium poster sessions. These sessions are an excellent opportunity to see, hear and discuss specific research topics directly with the abstract authors, as well as enjoy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar with colleagues from around the globe.

All abstracts received by the October 1, 2018 deadline will be considered for platform presentation and inclusion in the special lysosomes issue of Molecular Genetics and Metabolism (MGM) which will be published in February 2019. Poster notifications and assigned poster numbers will be sent to the first author of the submitted abstract at the beginning of December, 2018.

Late-breaking abstract submission (for poster consideration only) opens on November 1 and closes on December 1, 2018. Accepted late-breaking abstracts will not be published in the February 2019 special “Lysosomes Issue” of Molecular Genetics and Metabolism.

Registered attendees will receive an electronic copy of the program and abstracts when they check in at the WORLDSymposium 2019 registration desk. The program and abstracts become copyrighted and will be available to non-registrants through Elsevier.

It is the policy of WORLDSymposium to publish all abstracts with the list of authors exactly as the abstract was submitted to WORLDSymposium. The first author of the submitted abstract will be listed as the presenting author on the Preliminary Program, Agenda, and Poster List.

2019: Posters will be Divided into Two Separate Sessions

Poster receptions are scheduled on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 and Wednesday, February 6, 2019 from 4:30 – 6:30 PM.

Poster presenters with a last name starting with A-L (First Author Last Name) will present their posters on Tuesday, February 5, 2019, from 4:30-6:30 PM. Posters must be mounted no later than 4:00 PM on Tuesday, and will be removed after the Tuesday poster sessions ends.

Poster presenters with a last name starting with M-Z (First Author Last Name) will present their posters on Wednesday, February 6, 2019, from 4:30-6:30 PM. Posters must be mounted no later than 4:00 PM on Wednesday, and will be removed after the poster sessions ends.

All late-breaking abstracts will be assigned to the poster session on Wednesday, February 6, 2019, from 4:30-6:30 PM. Posters must be mounted no later than 4:00 PM on Wednesday, and will be removed after the poster sessions ends.

Poster presenters are required to be in attendance at their poster for their assigned timeframe. The poster sessions provide an excellent opportunity to discuss concepts, share knowledge, and exchange ideas with abstract authors and other WORLDSymposium participants.
