Poster Presentation

Deadline February 28th, 2018

Poster presentations provide an opportunity for research in progress, managerial case studies, and student presentations at Pathways 2018. This session allows for researchers early on in the research process and managers looking to share project results the opportunity to gain some feedback on projects/idea development.

  • Printed poster dimensions should be 48 inches wide x 36 inches tall (horizontal orientation)
  • The poster session will take place on Monday, September 17th in the evening
  • The session will be held in conjunction with a reception with beer, wine, and hors d’oeuvres



Please follow the instructions carefully and include all requested information. All submissions must be in English. Participants will not be allowed more than one poster presentation but may be listed as a co-author of several abstracts.

You may submit your abstract by visiting the Ex Ordo abstract submission system (you will be required to setup an account first):

If you have trouble submitting your abstract via the website, please e-mail us at and we will work with you.


POSTER PRESENTATIONS – Deadline: February 28th, 2018

Step 0) Create an account with Ex Ordo by visiting:

Step 1) Select the “Poster” track.

Step 2) Enter the title and abstract. The title must be ≤8 words and abstracts must be ≤500 words in order to submit. Abstracts that exceed the word limit can’t be submitted through the online submission system. Each abstract should include a clear statement of the problem or objectives, give brief methods and preliminary results/ hypothesis, and end with a clear conclusion.

Step 3) Enter all authors and their affiliations. All co-author’s email addresses must be included. You must also designate “corresponding authors” and “presenting authors.”

Step 4) Choose up to 3 topics/themes that accurately categorize your abstract. These topics will be used to place your abstract in an appropriate session if your submission is not part of an organized session.

The 2018 conference theme is Resurrecting the Wild. This theme will guide the development of our plenary and training program. We encourage individual presentations that fall within the 2018 conference theme, but this is not a requirement. The conference organizers have drafted a broader list of potential key topics areas that we hope will inspire the conference program. Click here to learn more about the 2018 theme and topics.

Step 5) You will be asked if you are submitting an Organized Session. This question is in reference to the submission that you are currently entering. Since this is a Poster Presentation, you will reply “no” here.

If your abstract is selected, you will be notified by an acceptance e-mail as soon as possible. All accepted submissions will be notified by May 15th, 2018.

Step 6) You should receive an email receipt from the system approximately 15 minutes after you submit your abstract. All accepted submissions will be notified by May 15th, 2018.



All presenters must register and pay for the conference no later than July 1st, 2018. Presentation slots are limited and cancellations prohibit others from presenting their findings, so please be considerate.
