Poster Program

SOCRA’s Annual Conference Poster Program is an opportunity for individuals to share their research, findings and achievements with their colleagues. SOCRA offers dedicated times for poster presenters to present and discuss their posters with the diverse group of attendees. Presenting a poster at SOCRA’s Annual Conference is a noteworthy way to share expertise or accomplishment in a specific area while contributing to clinical research. Please consider participating in this great event and becoming an integral part of SOCRA’s Annual Conference. 

Special Recognition Award Competition

Attendees interested in participating in the Poster Special Recognition Award Competition have an opportunity to compete for a $500 award and a fee waived registration to next year’s SOCRA Annual Conference.  All posters will be uploaded and viewed by Annual Conference attendees with the opportunity for virtual discussion.  Selected posters will be scheduled for the broadcast of recorded presentations. 

Posters may be entered in one of two categories:

  • Clinical Trials: Scientific papers reporting on findings of treatment, intervention, or survey studies.
  • Clinical Research Management: Critical reviews, position papers, or descriptive case reports dealing with issues associated with implementation, coordination, or management of clinical research programs.

The deadline for the 2020 Special Recognition Award competition is July 22, 2021. To be eligible for the competition, abstracts must be received by July 22nd. After that date, abstracts may be submitted but will not be eligible for the Special Recognition Award. The deadline to submit abstracts for the Poster Program and not be considered for the Special Recognition Award competition is August 24th.  

Please review the Abstract Submission Guidelines for complete instructions.

Poster boards are 4' x 8' and posters should fit within these dimensions. Poster boards will be freestanding, with a surface that will allow push pins to secure the display. Because posters are evaluated partially on their layout, SOCRA does not suggest a particular format or layout to the poster information.
