Poster Sessions

WORLDSymposium™ 2021 abstract submission site opened August 1, 2020.

Last year over 480 scientific abstracts were presented at three separate 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.

If a poster number is not listed, it means the first author of the abstract chose not to present a poster at WORLDSymposium 2020.

All abstracts received by the October 1, 2020 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 2021. Poster notifications and assigned poster numbers will be sent to the first author of the submitted abstract at the beginning of December, 2020.

Late-breaking abstract submission (for poster consideration only) will open on November 1 and close on December 1, 2020. Accepted late-breaking abstracts will not be published in the February 2021 special “Lysosomes Issue” of Molecular Genetics and Metabolism but will be published in the WORLDSymposium mobile app and program materials onsite.

Registered attendees will have access to an electronic copy of the program and abstracts via the WORLDSymposium 2021 Mobile App. Registered attendees must login to the Mobile App using the confirmation code they receive with their invitation to the Mobile App. The program and abstracts are 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.

2021: Posters will be Divided into Three (3) Separate Sessions

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

  • Monday, February 8, 2021
  • Tuesday, February 9, 2021 and
  • Wednesday, February 10, 2021

All posters may be mounted beginning at 9:30 AM on the assigned presentation date, but no later than 4:00 PM on the day the abstract is scheduled to be presented. All posters must be taken down at 6:30 PM the same day after being presented. New abstracts will be presented each day.

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.

ePosters in Exhibit Hall and in Mobile App

In addition, all poster presenters are required to submit an electronic version of their poster to be available to attendees throughout WORLDSymposium 2021.

Details on ePoster submission will be sent to all first authors.

All registered attendees will have access to the ePosters at electronic kiosks in the Exhibit Hall, during Exhibit hours at WORLDSymposium. The ePosters are NOT available after the close of the conference.
