WORLDSymposium 2025 Poster Sessions

Last year, over 400 scientific abstracts were presented at four separate poster sessions. These sessions are an excellent opportunity to see, hear and discuss specific research topics directly with the abstract authors. Although the ePoster content will be available to registered attendees throughout WORLDSymposium 2025 via the Mobile App, the opportunity for live Q&A with the presenters is limited to their assigned live poster sessions.

The 2025 Poster List will be released in early January 2025. Assigned poster numbers will be posted on the WORLDSymposium website in mid-January.

Abstract Submission Site opens August 1, 2024. The submission site closes on October 1, 2024 at 17:00 CDT.

Late-Breaking Abstract Submission Site opens November 1, 2024 and closes December 1, 2024 at 16:00 CST.

All abstracts received by the October 1, 2024 deadline will be considered for platform presentation and inclusion in the special lysosomes issue of Molecular Genetics and Metabolism (MGM) which will be published in February 2025. Poster acceptance notifications will be emailed to the first author of the submitted abstract on or around November 4, 2024. Assigned poster numbers will be available on the 2025 poster listing.

Due to publication deadlines, late-breaking abstracts are published in the program materials, and are not published in Molecular Genetics and Metabolism (MGM). Late-Breaking Poster acceptance notifications will be emailed to the first author of the submitted abstract on or around December 16, 2024.

2025: Posters will be presented in three (3) Sessions

The poster sessions provide an excellent opportunity to discuss concepts, share knowledge, and exchange ideas with abstract authors and other WORLDSymposium participants. Authors who accept a poster presentation will be assigned to present their abstract during one of four Live (in-person) sessions in the Exhibit Hall, based on the final abstract category for each abstract. Poster presenters are required to be in attendance at their poster for their assigned timeframe.

In addition to a printed poster for the live meeting presentation, all poster presenters are required to submit an electronic version of their poster, which will be available to attendees throughout WORLDSymposium 2025 in the Mobile App. Details on both the printed poster and ePoster requirements will be emailed to the first author within the acceptance email. An ePoster submission link will be sent to all first authors approximately one month prior to the start of WORLDSymposium 2025.

All registered attendees will have access to the posters and ePosters beginning at 05:00 PST, on Tuesday, February 4, 2025. The printed posters will be displayed on poster board kiosks in the Exhibit Hall, during Exhibit hours at WORLDSymposium and will remain available throughout WORLDSymposium 2025. ePosters will be available on the WORLDSymposium Mobile App and the On Demand program until March 14, 2025.

All posters will be in the Exhibit Hall in the Seaport Ballroom:

  • Basic Science Abstracts will be presented on Tuesday, February 4 from 15:30-17:30 PST
  • Translational Research Abstracts will be presented on Wednesday, February 5 from 15:30-17:30 PST
