WORLDSymposium™ 2020 will feature over 480 scientific abstracts 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, 2019 deadline were 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 were sent to the first author of the submitted abstract at the beginning of December, 2019.
Late-breaking abstract submission (for poster consideration only) opened on November 1 and closed on December 1, 2019. Accepted late-breaking abstracts will not be published in the February 2020 special “Lysosomes Issue” of Molecular Genetics and Metabolism but will be published in the WORLDSymposium program materials onsite.
Registered attendees will have access to an electronic copy of the program and abstracts via the WORLDSymposium 2020 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.
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 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 assigned a Presentation Number and assigned to a specific date and time. Due to space limitations, each poster will only be presented on the assigned date. The date and time assigned are communicated to the first author of the abstract.
- Abstracts numbered 1-164 will be presented on Monday, February 10, 2020.
- Abstracts numbered 165-328 will be presented on Tuesday, February 11, 2020.
- Abstracts numbered 329-436 and all late-breaking abstracts will be presented on Wednesday, February 12, 2020.
- Late-breaking abstract presenters should look for their poster number starting with LB- at the end of the regular poster section on Wednesday.
All poster sessions are from 4:30-6:30 PM in the Exhibit Hall.
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 2020.
Details on ePoster submission were sent to all first authors. Deadline for uploading ePosters is February 3, 2020.
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.
