NACFC 2021 Abstract Submission is Now Closed


Accepted Abstracts
All accepted abstracts will be showcased in the online virtual poster gallery. You are required to submit a one-page, single PDF file containing your poster, presenter headshot, and oral narration.  Your poster file should be uploaded at the highest resolution possible with an aspect ratio (ratio of width and height) of ‘16:9’.  The poster fonts should be sans-serif (e.g. Arial, Calibri). Font size cannot be smaller than 6pt. Please include your poster number in the top right-hand corner of your poster.

Along with your poster, you are required to submit a brief audio recording of no more than five minutes in length.  The narration should be used as an opportunity to walk an attendee through your poster similar to how you would explain your poster to a person who approaches you at your poster onsite. 

These materials should be submitted via the Poster Harvester and you will be able to record your narration using a built-in recording feature in the portal. The deadline for submitting your poster and audio file has been extended to October 1. If you believe you have not received the upload portal log-in, please contact us at

While we do not provide a conference poster template, when preparing your poster, we encourage you to view the following video on building better posters. Click here for video.

Please note that all accepted poster presenters are required to register for NACFC 2021.

Accepted Abstracts: Oral Presentation
Certain abstracts will be selected for oral presentation. If an author’s abstract is accepted for oral presentation, they will receive notification with detailed instructions.

Abstract Publication
All accepted abstracts will be published as a supplement to the Journal of Cystic Fibrosis (JCF). JCF will publish all accepted abstracts online on two websites: the JCF website  and ScienceDirect (an Elsevier portal that delivers journal content to universities and institutions). The abstracts will be numbered in a fully searchable PDF format.
