Poster Presentations

Poster Presentations


March 15th, 2019


Please follow the instructions carefully and include all requested information. All submissions must be in English. Participants are encouraged to not submit more than one oral presentation, and you may be listed as a co-author of several abstracts.

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

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


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 ≤300 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 substantive results, and end with a clear conclusion. Do not use vague statements such as “results will be discussed.”

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.” Please be aware, no more than the first 5 authors will be listed to retain program readability.

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 2019 conference theme is “Transient or Transformative: Does Human Dimensions Matter?” This theme will guide the development of our plenary and training program. We encourage posters that fall within the Pathways 2019 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. Please visit the theme section of the Pathways website to learn more about the Pathways 2019 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, you will reply “no” here. If this submission is an organized session, return to Step 1 and mark it as an organized session and follow the organized session instruction steps instead.

If your abstract is selected, you will be notified with an acceptance e-mail as soon as possible. All accepted submissions will be notified by May 1st, 2019.
