Call for Posters

Present your latest research and connect with like-minded integrative healthcare practitioners during the Poster Sessions at the Integrative Healthcare Symposium in February.

Once selected, presenters must register for the event with a Conference Pass. Exhibitor badges not accepted; presenters must be registered attendees.

The Call for Posters has closed.
For questions about Poster Sessions, please email info@ihsymposium.com


Integrative Healthcare Symposium poster abstract submissions must include unpublished, original research, evidence-based practice, leadership, ethics, clinical science, practice models and be submitted through the Integrative Healthcare Symposium poster abstract submission web page. Multiple abstracts can be submitted by the same presenting author but must address different research. All abstracts must be submitted in English with accurate grammar and spelling suitable for publication.

Authors: Abstracts must be submitted by the presenting author who is expected to present the poster at Integrative Healthcare Symposium. Co-authors can be included on the abstract.

Acceptance and Programming Notification: Presenting authors will be notified of poster abstract acceptance and programming via e-mail by the end of November. Please make sure your e-mail settings will allow emails from info@ihsymposium.com to ensure important program information gets through your spam filters.

Meeting Participation: Submission of a poster abstract constitutes a commitment by the author to present it if accepted. If an abstract must be withdrawn due to unforeseen circumstance, please contact rschmitt@divcom.com immediately. In the subject line, please include “Abstract Withdrawal”. Failure to present at the meeting, if not justified, will jeopardize future acceptance of abstracts for the Integrative Healthcare Symposium conferences.

Poster Tips

  • The material must be readable for distances of three feet or more. You are strongly encouraged to use type font at least ¼ inch high (22-point type minimum) to ensure legibility. Please make sure all print is very dark (preferably block style) on very light (preferable white) background. Please do not use a dark-colored background. Note that smaller type, especially standard 12-point print, will be very difficult to read.
  • Your presentation should be written concisely, keeping the number of pieces to a minimum. Charts, drawing, and illustrations should be similar to those you would otherwise use in making slides and anything that is more heavily drawn. Try to avoid using very fine lines or rules; these items are difficult to see from a distance. Keep everything as simple as possible and avoid “artsy” or overly ornate presentations. Bold lettering adds emphasis and clarity. Captions should be brief; labels few but clear.
  • It is recommended that you provide the viewer (by numbers, letter, or arrows) a preferred sequence to follow while studying your poster.
  • Your poster should be self-explanatory; this allows you to provide supplemental information and discuss particular points of inquiry during the poster session. The poster session provides a more intimate forum for informal discussion than the regular presentation, but this becomes more difficult if you are obliged to devote most or your time to merely explaining your poster to a succession of visitors.
  • When discussing therapeutic options, it is our preference that you use only generic names. If it is necessary to use a trade name, then those of several companies must be used. In addition, should your presentation include discussion on any unlabeled or investigational use of commercial product, you are required to disclose this at the time of presentations.
  • We will provide pushpins for securing your poster to the presentation board.
  • Picture taking in the Poster Session is NOT permitted.
  • Do not leave personal belongings unattended at any time. Only handouts should be left with your poster.
