Poster Presentations

Poster Presentations


We understand that several of you need to apply for visas to visit the United States for the Pathways Conference. If this is the case and you need an expedited review process, please email us at Thank you!

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

You may submit your abstract by visiting the Survey Monkey website and filling out the information accordingly.

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


Step 0) Navigate to Survey Monkey to fill out your poster submission.

Step 1) Select the “Poster” format. If you need to submit an Organized Session, follow this link instead.

Step 2) Enter the title and abstract. The title must be ≤8 words and abstracts must be ≤300 words in order to submit. Each abstract should include a clear statement of the problem or objectives, give brief methods and substantive results, and end with a clear conclusion. Do not use vague statements such as “results will be discussed.”

Step 3) Enter authors and their affiliations. All co-author’s email addresses must be included. You must also designate “corresponding authors” and “presenting authors.” Please be aware, no more than the first 5 authors may be listed to retain program readability. Up to 2 authors may be listed as presenting.

Step 4) Choose up to 3 topics 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 Pathways theme is “Life Without Salmon?” This theme will guide the development of our plenary and training program. We encourage individual presentations that fall within the Pathways 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.

Step 5) You will be asked if your submission is part of an Organized Session. If this submission is part of an organized session, please select “yes” to the question “is this abstract part of an Organized Session?” and enter the title of the Organized Session.

If your poster is selected, you will be notified with an acceptance email no later than February 28th, 2022. 



If your abstract is selected, please prepare your poster in 1M x 1M format (36″x36″). Presenters must bring their own posters, as the Pathways team is unable to print for you.
