ePoster Requirement: ALL Poster Presenters are REQUIRED to present their printed posters in-person in Charlotte, as well as upload an ePoster to the virtual ePoster Hall along with a 3-minute narration.

Abstracts accepted for poster presentation will take place in the Crown Ballroom on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, October 23-25, and accepted posters will be scheduled for display on one of those days. Presenting authors will receive the assigned date and time of their poster presentation, along with the assigned poster number, when acceptance notifications are sent out in late July. No changes in dates or times will be permitted. Poster size details and presentation guidelines, provided upon acceptance notification, can also be downloaded here.

Poster Size: The maximum poster size is 69 inches wide x 45 inches high (175 cm wide x 114 cm high). Standing poster boards cannot accommodate posters larger than this size. The recommended poster size is 64 inches wide x 36 inches high (163 cm wide x 92 cm high). Free poster templates sized for printed posters as well as ePosters can be downloaded at Genigraphics.com/ACG.

Each presenter is responsible for putting up and removing his/her own poster material. Printed numbers that correspond to assigned poster numbers will be pinned to the standing boards, in sequential order. Pushpins will be available at each board.

Presenters who have multiple posters scheduled on the same day that are not located together can ask a co-author to be present at one of the posters during the time authors must stand with their posters. Alternately, we recommend posting a sign on one of the posters indicating you will be standing at a different poster that includes your cell phone number for questions.

Presenters are required to display their posters for the entirety of their assigned Poster Session, and must also stand with and present their posters, according to their scheduled day and time.

Outstanding Poster Presenter Recognition

The College is pleased to continue the “Outstanding Poster Presenter” recognition at this year’s ACG Annual Scientific Meeting. ACG is working to cultivate the ability of clinical GI researchers to use critical storytelling and presentation skills essential for a career as a clinical investigator and scientific communicator.

During the daily Poster Rounds with the Experts, poster presenters may be invited to give a succinct and informative 1-2-minute briefing on their research, followed by one minute of Q & A with a faculty judge. Each judge will then select one or more “Outstanding Poster Presenters” who are best able to communicate their key findings, the significance of their data, as well as to articulate the potential impact of their work for clinicians and patients. Outstanding Poster Presenter recipients will be recognized with a red ribbon awarded on-site (winners may keep the ribbon), and will receive a certificate. Multiple awards may be made in each abstract category.

Only presenters standing with their printed posters during the assigned time are eligible to receive this distinction.
