Poster Sessions

WORLDSymposium 2020 abstract submission site opened July 25, 2019.

Last year, over 440 abstracts were presented at the two WORLDSymposium poster sessions. These sessions are an excellent opportunity to see, hear and discuss specific research topics directly with the abstract authors, as well as enjoy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar with colleagues from around the globe.

All abstracts received by the October 1, 2019 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 2020. Poster notifications and assigned poster numbers will be sent to the first author of the submitted abstract at the beginning of December, 2019.

Late-breaking abstract submission (for poster consideration only) opens on November 1 and closes on December 1, 2019. Accepted late-breaking abstracts will not be published in the February 2020 special “Lysosomes Issue” of Molecular Genetics and Metabolism.

Registered attendees will receive an electronic copy of the program and abstracts when they check in at the WORLDSymposium 2020 registration desk. The program and abstracts become copyrighted and will be available to non-registrants through Elsevier.

It is the policy of WORLDSymposium to publish all abstracts with the list of authors exactly as the abstract was submitted to WORLDSymposium. The first author of the submitted abstract will be listed as the presenting author on the Preliminary Program, Agenda, and Poster List.

2020: Posters will be Divided into Three (3) Separate Sessions

Poster receptions are scheduled from 4:30-6:30 PM on:

  • Monday, February 10, 2020
  • Tuesday, February 11, 2020 and
  • Wednesday, February 12, 2020

All posters are to be mounted by 4:00 PM on the day the abstract is scheduled to be presented, and must be taken down at 6:30 PM the same day after being presented. New abstracts will be presented each day.

Poster presenters will be assigned to a specific poster session, Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday from 4:30-6:30 PM. Date and time assignments will be communicated to the first author, and posted by on the website by December 1, 2019.

Poster presenters are required to be in attendance at their poster for their assigned timeframe. The poster sessions provide an excellent opportunity to discuss concepts, share knowledge, and exchange ideas with abstract authors and other WORLDSymposium participants.
