Annual Scientific Meeting
Leading experts will tour posters in their areas of specialty, talk with the presenters, and share their insights. Attendees can join an Expert's group at the Poster Counter, located behind the ACG booth (#1244) in the Exhibit Hall, 10 minutes before the start time. Rounds will begin on Sunday at 5:15pm, and on Monday and Tuesday at 1:00pm.
The College is pleased to continue the "Outstanding Poster Presenter" recognition at this year's ACG Annual Scientific Meeting. ACG is working to cultivate the ability of clinical GI researchers to use critical storytelling and presentation skills essential for a career as a clinical investigator and scientific communicator.
During Poster Rounds, poster presenters may be invited to give a succinct and informative two minute briefing or "elevator pitch" on their research followed by one minute of Q & A with expert faculty judges. Each judge will then select one or more "Outstanding Poster Presenters" who are best able to communicate their key findings, the significance of their data, as well as to articulate the potential impact of their work for clinicians and patients. Multiple awards may be made in each abstract category. A red ribbon and certificate will be given to each recipient. (All abstracts selected for poster presentation, with authors present at the assigned time, are eligible.)
