All Poster Presenters

The main abstract author must present his/her poster during the date and time designated for the abstract category to which the abstract was accepted. Details pertaining to presentation times were sent to the main author in January 2017.

Presenter Requirements: All main authors are required to register for the meeting (Annual Meeting or TAS) online and pay the registration fee. Additionally, the main author must log into the Speaker Information Center, and complete the forms listed below in order to present at the Annual Meeting or TAS.

IMPORTANT: If the author does not complete these forms, the author may not be permitted to be present. To access your forms, follow the steps below:

  1. Visit either the Annual Meeting or TAS Speaker Information Center (select the meeting at which you will be presenting)

Changing the Main Author: If the main author is unable to present at the meeting, you must send an email to education@scahq.org providing the name and email address of the replacement abstract presenter prior to the meeting. Unless the SCA is notified of a change in presenting author, only the main author will be allowed to present the abstract.

Cancellation Policy: In case the abstract presentation must be cancelled in its entirety due to an unforeseen emergency, an email must be sent to education@scahq.org explaining the situation in appropriate and sufficient detail. Please note: Any main author who fail to notify SCA Staff of a cancellation may be prohibited from presenting another abstract at subsequent SCA meetings.

The poster display boards on site will be double-sided. Your assigned poster number that was provided in your acceptance letter will be in the upper right hand corner of the poster display board, along with your abstract title. Your poster may be a maximum of 48 inches tall and 96 inches wide, in order to fit on the display boards. SCA will provide tacks for you to hang your poster with at the meeting.
