Meeting Posters:

All registrants are invited to submit an abstract for the poster sessions at the CSI meeting, June 6 - 9, 2023 in Orford, Quebec.

  • Due to space constraints, abstracts submitted by undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral trainees will be given priority for in-person poster presentation.
  • Only one poster per presenting author will be given a physical poster spot and considered for judging and awards.     
  • All abstracts have the option to submit their posters to be included in the Mobile App (a 3-minute video presentation recording).

Note: Due to space constraints, the first 200 submitted abstracts will be given a physical poster onsite.

Poster Awards:

Awards for the best posters presented by student and PDF members of CSI are presented at the conference. Please indicate your wish to have your abstract considered for a poster award during your abstract submission online. Judging requests made on-site for a poster will not be accepted.

In order to prepare a winning poster you might use the following guidelines:

  • Prepare a poster as if you were going to an international meeting. Indicate your name and that of your supervisor and of everyone else who contributed significantly to the work presented (supporting you morally by making jokes or drinking together over the miseries of experimental science does not qualify your best buddies as co-authors). The work presented should be mostly yours. Also tell us which department, hospital, institution and city you come from.
  • Present the data in a clear and professional fashion, so that the reader should be able to understand easily your rationale, data and conclusions. Check your spelling so that the English or French is clear and concise.

A panel of judges will review the posters and will try to identify the most novel, challenging, original and well executed ones.

Notes for the preparation of Posters:

The dimensions of the poster should not exceed 3' 5" (w) by 4' (h). Push pins will be provided.

Judging Process:

  • To be eligible for poster awards, one needs to be a current CSI member and must indicate that they wish for their poster to be judged during the online abstract submission. Judging requests made on-site for a poster will not be accepted.
  • The first 200 submitted posters will be judged in two rounds. The first round of judging will be virtual, and the second round will be conducted in person at the meeting venue during Poster Session 1, 2, or 3. "All eligible posters will be judged by video and again in person at the CSI 2023 meeting. No posters will be judged only on the basis of a video."
  • Judges will be required to view video presentations in advance of the meeting and provide their scores (round 1).
  • There will be three in-person poster sessions (Tues/Wed/Thurs) with up to 67 posters to be judged each night (by 7 teams of judging pairs). The format for in-person judging will be as usual – that is 8 minutes of oral presentation followed by 2 minutes set aside for Q&A.
  • Each poster will receive two scores, which will be added to determine the final score for ranking.
