Because of the “hybrid” format of the meeting there will be no Poster exhibition and nor oral Poster session in 2021. Therefore, nor Poster submissions will be accepted for the 2021 Workshop.
The abstract must be structured, including the following sections:
Aim(s), Methods, Results (some numerical data, including confidence intervals on differences, when appropriate, must be included), and Conclusions. The abstract should not exceed a maximum of 250 words. In addition, authors should provide a written statement on:
What is already known about this subject
This statement should contain a summary of the state of scientific knowledge on this subject before you did your study along with a justification why this study was needed to be done in up to three short bullet points (not more than 50 words in total).
What this study adds
This section should provide a simple answer to the questions “What do we now know as a result of this study that we did not know before?” and “What take-home-message do you want to impart to the readers?” in up to three short bullet point sentences (not more than 50 words in total).
Abstracts of posters will be included in the conference materials and will be made available on the Marbach DDI website.
Poster must have portrait format and size should be no larger than 120 x 140 cm (47.24 x 55.12 inch).
Please be prepared to display your poster during registration on Sunday, May 17th or latest on Monday, May 18th, before the first session begins.
There is no formal poster presentation scheduled. All posters will remain displayed throughout the conference. Poster presenters will therefore have ample time for discussion with attendees during breaks and panel discussions.
A total of 4 Posters will be selected by the Faculty for oral presentation during the Monday afternoon session (10-minute presentations with 5 minutes of discussion).
Approved poster applicants are responsible for completing a workshop attendance registration form and payment of fee by April 30th, 2020, and for the shipping of the poster itself.
Please contact Professor Derendorf for any questions or comments.
