Abstracts: Posters and oral presentations

Abstract submissions are due April 15, 2019.

Submitting authors will be notified by email in May whether their abstract has been accepted for the 2019 ENTIS Meeting.

About the oral presentations

Oral presentations are 15 minutes in total. Please prepare approximately 10-12 minutes to leave room questions/discussion.

About the posters

Poster dimensions must not exceed 960 mm x 1400 mm (portrait).

Some basic tips for posters: Remember that your poster should be catchy and visually enticing. The title should be visible from a distance. Do not use too much text. The most common mistake is excessive text and concomitant illegible font sizes. Do not overuse figures, colours or create too much turmoil on your poster. Avoid lengthy or facile titles. Attractive titles often involve interesting questions or answers to those. Do not write the entire poster in one paragraph. Use breaks and subheadings to separate. In general, people will not spend more than 3-5 minutes on a poster. Make these minutes count. Follow a standard pattern with subheadings for your poster, e.g. background, goals, material and methods, results and conclusions.

About the posters spotlight session

There are two poster spotlight sessions:

Session I Saturday 7th 10.00 – 10.30
Session II Saturday 7th 13.30 – 14.30 ​

Poster presenters must prepare a 3-min presentation which will take place by the posters. The poster spotlight session will be moderated. The role of the moderator will be to keep the time and to moderate the discussion. There will be room for one or two questions depending on time.

Tips: prepare 2-3 sentences that summarize the main point of your work and why it is important. This can be done in several manners, but should be fairly catchy, easily understood points.

Questions to think about:

  • What is the background for your research? (Why is it important?)
  • What is the question you want to answer?
  • How did you do it?
  • What are your main results?

Publication of abstracts

Accepted abstracts will be published online in Reproductive Toxicology.
