Submit Poster Abstract - Submit E-Poster (new for 2018)

Social Event, Poster Session, and Reception:

Following the Plenary Session, members and guests are invited to spend the afternoon at our social event, poster session, and reception. Our excursion this year will take us to the Merion Tribute House in Merion Station, PA. While at the Merion Tribute House we will enjoy the entertainment of Kevin Bethea, Corporate Magician and Illusionist. Kevin will provide a full blown 45-minute show that includes magic, comedy, and incredible feats of mind-reading along with tons of audience participation. While enjoying cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, members and guests will view the posters, exchange knowledge with their peers, and enjoy old and new friendships.  Also during this time Kevin will do strolling magic, it is performed up close for just a few people at a time. Magic happens right in your own hands! A buffet dinner will follow. At the conclusion of the event, bus transportation will take guests back to the Best Western Plus, Concordville Hotel. Click here to learn more about Kevin Bethea!

Poster Session Information:
The Technical Committee Chair, Mark Rodriguez, encourages members to submit posters or displays for the poster session.

Poster Guidelines 
Poster boards are 40 inches high, 60 inches wide, and about 1/4 inch thick, comprised of foam board. Pins and Velcro will be available to attach your poster to the foam boards. Authors are asked to post their presentations approximately 15 minutes prior to the start of the session.

Guidelines for Preparing Abstracts
Abstracts will be posted as received on the ICDD webpage. If you do not want your abstract posted, please note your request in your e-mail message when you submit it. Abstracts must not exceed one page in length and must include the title, author(s), affiliation(s), and the text. To provide uniformity, it is recommended that abstracts be prepared in Microsoft® Word, according to the following guidelines:

Abstract Format

  • Paper Size: 8.5 x 11 inches; A4 paper must be formatted for 8.5 x 11 inches
  • Size: Entire abstract, including title, author(s), affiliation(s), and text, must fit into a maximum area of 7.9" (20 cm) high by 5.9" (15 cm) wide. Please allow a top margin of 1.5” (3.8 cm) and 1” (2.54 cm) margins on all other sides
  • Font: Times or Times New Roman, 12 point
  • Title: bold, centered, all uppercase (except where lowercase letters are needed for clarity)
  • Text:
    • Should appear flush left; do not indent
    • Leave one blank line between the title and the author(s)
    • Author and affiliation, mixed upper and lowercase, centered; if there is more than one author, underline the presenting author's name
    • Leave two blank lines before beginning text
    • A blank line is recommended between new paragraphs
    • Use line spacing sufficiently large enough to allow the abstract to be read easily, including subscripts, superscripts and Greek letters

Submission
The preferred method of submitting your abstracts is in a PDF format via this ICDD submission form.

However, if you require an alternate method, please contact Eileen Jennings –
E-mail: jennings@icdd.com or Tel: +610-325-9814.

Abstracts should be submitted no later than 2 March 2018.

 

NEW FOR 2018 - E-POSTERS!

E-POSTERS

In addition to the traditional poster session on Tuesday evening, poster presenters are invited to submit an electronic file of their poster for viewing at ICDD headquarters throughout meeting week. An eposter station will be positioned in the front lobby of the ICDD building giving members the opportunity to thoroughly study the poster presentations.

The following are guidelines for formatting and submitting your eposter to ICDD:

E-POSTER FORMAT:

  1. Your poster file must be in full landscape format and be one page only.
  2. Create your poster in PowerPoint (or equivalent).
  1. Title: Bold, Center, Mixed upper and lower case.
  2. Author(s), Affiliation(s) and Contact Author E-mail Address: Center directly under Title. Leave one blank line after the Contact Author’s E-mail Address before beginning text of poster.
  3. It is strongly recommended to use a 16:9 aspect ratio (widescreen), with a simple and clear typeface (Arial, Arial black, Calibri...) and regular text size not less than 28 for the body of the different sections (depending on the amount of data you will be adding and the design you are using).
  4. Images/pictures or graphs, the suggested minimum resolution is 300 dpi. To check that they appear correctly on the final/printed version, zoom in at 100% and check the images, pictures and graphs. It is better to use high quality images/graphs when creating the poster and then convert it to PDF (as PDF files can be compressed).
  5. Provide clear labels or headings for each section of your presentation to avoid confusion.
  1. Convert to PDF format
  2. PDF file cannot exceed 10MB
  3. Attach your PDF to an email and send to ICDD by 5 March 2018. Please email your file or any questions to Denise Zulli: zulli@icdd.com

HELPFUL HINTS:
Try to avoid the use of red or green in fonts or backgrounds as they are colors that are difficult to read.

EXAMPLES:
coming soon

Deadline:
Please email the PDF of your eposter to Denise Zulli - zulli@icdd.com by 5 March 2018.
