Presenting a poster at SLAS2018 is an effective way for participants to communicate their research to their colleagues and is often the "presentation method of choice" for many scientists.
To be considered for a poster presentation, you must first submit an abstract for consideration by the SLAS2018 Program Committee. Space is limited so; submit your poster abstract today by clicking the box to the right.
Please note that a schedule of poster presentations will be available via the SLAS Event Scheduler in late-November, 2017.
Poster Presentations Sessions are scheduled for Monday, February 5th, Tuesday, February 6th, and Wednesday, February 7th in the SLAS2018 Exhibition Hall at the times shown below. Posters may be displayed for the duration of exhibition hours on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Poster presenters will be assigned a poster presentation number and presentation date upon acceptance of their submitted abstract.
Presenters must be present for the duration of their scheduled poster presentation session to "present" their poster content. However, SLAS encourages poster presenters to display their posters for the duration of exhibit hall hours on all three exhibition dates.

Poster presenters are encouraged to display their posters for the duration of the exhibition hours at SLAS2018, but presenters are required to be available to present their poster content based on their scheduled presentation date and time. Presenters will be assigned to one of the following five poster presentation sessions:
Posters will be displayed in three distinct and marked areas throughout the SLAS2018 exhibition floor. Poster numbers are color coded by track and include a unique four digit presentation number. Each presentation number is preceded by a letter (A, B, C, D or E) which designates which session the poster is presented within. A key is on this page above. Presentation date and numbers will be distributed on a rolling/monthly basis between October and January upon review/acceptance by the SLAS2018 Program Committee:
|Advances in Bioanalytics, Biomarkers and Diagnostics||Blue|
