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 2024 Annual Conference.

Poster Program Guidelines 

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.
