ABCT Women's SIG

ABCT SIG Poster Exposition & Student Poster Award


The Women's SIG invites you to send poster submissions for the 2017 ABCT SIG Poster Exposition and Cocktail Hour!

Presenters should submit a full, complete poster by August 15th, 2017 to Laura Sockol (Laura.Sockol@gmail.com), with "ABCT 2017 Women’s SIG Poster Submission" in the subject line. If the first author of the poster is a student (undergraduate or graduate), please indicate this in your email in order to be considered for the Women’s SIG Student Poster Exposition Award (see below). Please note that incomplete submissions (e.g., abstracts rather than the full poster) or posters that are not formatted correctly (please see guidelines for appropriate dimensions) will not be accepted. You do not need to submit an abstract with your poster. For more information about formatting guidelines for SIG Expo posters, please review these guidelines. Please feel free to contact Laura Sockol with any questions.​

All members of the Women’s SIG are eligible to submit, and content of the poster should focus on women’s issues. Membership dues are $16/year for full members and $8/year for student members. You can become a member by visiting the Women’s SIG website “Pay Dues” tab, found in the menu to your left! 

Student (undergraduate or graduate) members whose posters are accepted for presentation at the SIG poster exposition will be automatically considered for the Women’s SIG Student Poster Exposition Award. In order to be eligible, the student must be the first author of the poster and must state that s/he is a student upon submitting the poster. In addition to being recognized at the Women’s SIG meeting at this year’s conference, the winner will have an opportunity to meet for coffee with a senior member of ABCT. 


All poster submissions must be received by August 15th, 2017. Presenters will be notified of the status of their submission by September 8, 2017. 


We look forward to seeing you in San Diego!
