Poster Session Information 

The 2023 Pediatric Cancer Research Symposium will feature a Poster Session from 7:00-8:00am and will also be available during breaks and the lunch hour.

Below are the details for the poster submission. If we receive more than 40 submissions, we will be closing the registration due to space limitations. 

  • We accept scientific posters that are relevant to pediatric cancer research from all levels of investigators.
  • Must be registered to participate (registration is free, and we highly encourage all poster presenters to attend the symposium in person to be able to interact with attendees).
  • Please fill out this intake form no later than August 15th if you plan to have a poster so we can have a spot reserved for you in the atrium.
    • PCRG is supporting printing costs if needed (no reprints please). By using this form, you can help us get the information we need to submit your poster to the print shop (if needed). Posters will be printed in gloss if we process the order on your behalf.
    • Email chri@unmc.edu your poster files for printing (if needed) no later than August 16th. Any rush charges will be the responsibility of the investigator.
    • Investigators will be responsible for approving the proof and picking up the final poster from the print shop unless they select on the form that a CHRI representative can pick up on your behalf.
  • Posters should fit on a 48” x 36” board (Please use Brandwise Templates to meet branding requirements – Posters J and N will fit on the boards, and the 56x40 templates can be reduced).
  • If you are a CHRI member, we encourage you to add the CHRI logo.
  • If CHRI is not picking up your poster, please plan to bring your poster on the morning of the event August 29th to be ready for viewing at 7am. Specifics about where to drop them off will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
  • All posters will need to be retrieved at the end of the symposium unless previous arrangements are made with CHRI administrative staff.

You will receive a confirmation email and Outlook calendar invitation for the poster session.
