Scientific posters will be in FULL DIGITAL DISPLAY at the ACRM 99th Annual Conference in Chicago – making poster presenting convenient, economical and environmentally friendly.

What is a Scientific Poster?

A Scientific Poster (aka research poster) is a graphic presentation of a scientific paper with a required 3-5 minute recording and optional 3-5 minute presentation on site (in Chicago). A poster display summarizes information or research concisely and attractively to help publicize and generate discussion.

ACRM has upgraded the format of poster displays for 2022. ALL scientific posters will now be fully digital.

  • More convenient, economical, and environment friendly
  • No more printing your poster

  • No more hanging your poster
  • No more taking your poster down
