Space will be available for posters, and this format provides another opportunity for scientists to attend WCBR. Posters are displayed in daily sessions with a special evening poster session for the highest ranked poster abstracts by junior investigators. Presenters of these posters may be eligible for awards given at the banquet – please plan to attend the banquet. The size of the poster board is 4′ tall x 6′ wide. If accepted, please prepare accordingly.
