Poster Break-Down

Please remove your poster immediately following the afternoon poster viewing session (Thursday at 16:45 and Friday at 17:00). Posters not removed from the poster boards by the times listed, will be taken down and disposed of by the CCIB staff. We cannot be responsible for the status of your poster after this time.

Poster Size

0.9 meters tall x 1.5 meters wide. Presentations will be hung using push pins or t-pins that you MUST provide. You are responsible for printing your poster and bringing it to the Congress venue (the CCIB). Posters may not be shipped directly to the Congress venue.

Poster Location

CCIB, Exhibit Hall

Once you have your Congress badge, please check in at the “Poster Check-In” table the morning of your poster viewing between 8:30 – 10:00. The table is located outside the Exhibit Hall. Once you have checked-in at the table, you can proceed into the Exhibit Hall to hang your poster.

Poster numbers will be located on the poster boards in the Exhibit Hall, in numerical order using the Abstract Number. This number can also be found listed in the Annals of Oncology Journal Supplement which will be located in your Congress bag. Do not move your number or hang your poster in the place of another submission.

We ask that you stand with your poster during the poster viewing times listed with each abstract type listed above. If for some reason, you are unable to attend the Congress and you have not withdrawn your abstract, please contact wgiabstracts@imedex.com

Oral Presentation Guidelines

A select number of abstracts have been chosen for oral presentation as clearly stated in your acceptance letter. You will be required to give a 7 minute PowerPoint presentation of your data followed by 3 minutes for questions. Please submit your presentation by 27 June.

If you wish to upload a new version of your presentation at the Congress, please bring a copy of your slides on a thumb drive to the Faculty Room and introduce yourself as an oral abstract presenter. (Please note: You cannot check in at the Faculty Room unless you are a speaker in the plenary session.) You must bring the final version of your presentation to the Faculty Room at least 1 hour prior to your talk. IF YOUR ABSTRACT PRESENTATION IS SCHEDULED FOR A MORNING SESSION, YOU MUST BRING THE FINAL VERSION OF YOUR PRESENTATION THE DAY BEFORE.

Poster Discussion Guidelines

A select number of abstracts have been chosen for poster discussion as clearly stated in your acceptance letter. A Session Chair will present abstracts selected for poster discussion during the poster discussion session. You will need to submit a PowerPoint file of your poster so that the Session Chair can discuss your poster. Please plan to attend this session in case the panel or audience has specific questions regarding your poster. Please submit your slides by 24 June.

If you have any questions regarding your presentation, please contact wgiabstracts@imedex.com
