All PAG attendees and exhibitors with paid registration are invited to submit poster abstracts. A poster abstract is a visual presentation where materials in addition to the abstract — such as genetic maps, physical maps, photographs, graphs, and/or tables — are presented on a display board along with textual summaries of the material. Over 1,100 poster abstracts will be presented at PAG, and for attendees this is a very valuable aspect of the conference.

PAG 2020 083 sm 2

All abstracts will be reviewed by the Abstract Coordinators. Accepted abstracts will be presented at the conference in the Exhibit Hall and will also be included in the Final Program, Abstract and Exhibit Guide. After the conference, the abstract will also be available online in the searchable archives.

Physical Poster Specifications

The poster presentation space available is 3ft wide x 4ft high, or 36in w x 48 in h (91cm x 122 cm) Dimensions are for a vertical poster. It is important to note that there is an approximately 1 inch metal rim on the border, which reduces the poster board VISIBLE space to 34 inches wide by 46 inches high (86 cm x 117 cm). 

Posters are displayed directly next to each other, so there is no room on the horizontal sides for overflow. Should you require more vertical space however, posters greater than 46 inches in height can hang a few inches beyond the edge of the presentation board on the bottom.


Late Abstract Submission Information

Once the official Poster Abstract Submission deadline has passed, we will offer a link for Late Poster Abstact Submission. Posters submitted late will be assigned a poster number for displaying on-site in exhibit hall, and will be included online and in the mobile app. Late posters will be accepted up until the beginning of the conference.
