Accepted Abstracts: Poster Presentation

All accepted abstracts must be presented in 4' x 4' poster form and displayed in The Exchange. Instructions for poster presentation onsite will be included in the acceptance notifications to presenting authors.

Accepted Abstracts: ePosters

As an enhancement to the NACFC program, posters will once again be submitted electronically for NACFC 2018. ePosters allow participants to view the posters electronically at their convenience, only in The Exchange during the conference. This will provide increased exposure to authors’ posters, in addition to the poster discussion presentation time during the scheduled NACFC poster session. Details regarding ePoster submissions will be included in the acceptance notifications to presenting authors.

Accepted Abstracts: Thematic Poster Sessions 

NACFC 2018 will once again feature thematic poster sessions. They will consist of two key parts: (1) poster presentations of abstracts focused on a central theme followed by a (2) moderated discussion. These sessions are designed to engage the authors and members of the audience in a discussion that ties together ideas from multiple posters in the session. For further details, please review the NACFC 2018 Thematic Poster Session Description.

Accepted Abstracts: Oral Presentation

In addition to being presented in poster form, certain abstracts will be selected for oral presentation in specific Workshop sessions. If an author’s abstract is accepted for oral presentation, they will receive notification with further instructions.

Best Abstract Awards for Junior Investigators

First (presenting) authors of accepted abstracts who are enrolled in a graduate program or, at the time of the conference, are a post-doctoral or clinical fellow, who indicated they were interested will be eligible for consideration in a competition for two awards: (1) “Junior Investigator Best Abstract in Basic Science Award;" and (2) "Junior Investigator Best Abstract in Clinical Research Award." The five highest scoring abstracts will be chosen for oral presentations during the Junior Investigator Sessions, designed to highlight abstracts by junior investigators in the field of CF basic science and clinical research. The candidate with the best overall abstract and presentation will receive the respective award during NACFC.
