* Posters that are not removed by the time indicated above will be thrown away.

  1. Poster board surface is 48” tall by 94″ wide. The poster dimensions should be no greater than 44” x 91”. You are limited to this surface.
  2. A header which includes the Title, Authors, and Affiliations should be mounted at the top of the board.
  3. All presenters are expected to place a disclosure statement at the top of their posters. The United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology protects the integrity of its educational program content by strict enforcement of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) Standards for Integrity and Independence in Accredited Continuing Education. In accordance with requirements of the ACCME, USCAP requires all individuals who are in a position to control the content of a CME activity to disclose all financial relationships with any ineligible companies that you have had in the past 24 months. An ineligible company is any entity whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients. There is no minimum financial threshold; you should disclose all financial relationships, regardless of the potential relevance of each relationship to the education.
  4. All illustrations, charts, graphs, and printed material should be legible from a distance of 3 feet or more. Keep illustrative material simple. Photographs show up better if they are matte finished. Avoid heavy backing material which is difficult to attach to the board.
  5. Pushpins will be provided for mounting posters on the poster board.
  6. If you have any questions on-site regarding posters, or if you arrive to setup and there is already a poster on your board, please visit the USCAP Poster Information Booth #322 for assistance.

Poster Printing

Please note, USCAP is not offering an on-site poster printing/pick-up option at the Annual Meeting. There is a FedEx across the street from the convention center, or your poster will need to be printed in advance and brought to the meeting. Please visit the Poster Presenter Information page for additional information.

Embargo Policy

Unless otherwise noted, all abstracts presented at the USCAP Annual Meeting are embargoed until the date and time of presentation. They cannot be presented in any national or international forum or be published (online or print) in abstract or manuscript form prior to the first day of the USCAP annual meeting. USCAP reserves the right to lift the embargo on specific abstracts that are selected for promotion prior to or during the USCAP Annual Meeting. If the accepted abstract is also submitted as a manuscript for publication, authors are responsible for coordinating a publication date that abides by the Academy’s embargo policy. If publication occurs online or in print before the USCAP 2023 Annual Meeting March 11-16, 2023, the abstract must be withdrawn. Please notify the Academy via email at [email protected]. If the accepted abstract is found to have been presented or published prior to the USCAP 2023 Annual Meeting it will be removed from the program.
