VIEWING ePOSTER PRESENTATIONS:

ISHLT will continue to highlight ALL presentations with ePosters, a virtual online poster hall. This free service provided by ISHLT enables authors to create an online version of their presentation for viewing before, during and after the ISHLT 2017 Annual Meeting. This opportunity enhances the value of the presentation and extends the life of the authors' research and its availability to all ISHLT members, including those who are unable to attend the meeting.  Rich content can be shown via ePosters, including audio and video. The link to the ePoster viewer site will be posted here on April 5, 2017.

PRESENTATION FORMATS:

Work based on submitted abstracts will be presented in one of four formats: Featured, Oral, Mini Oral, or Poster presentation. If you are a presenter, visit the Speaker Information page for detailed instructions on presenting at the ISHLT Annual Meeting.

Featured Presentation:
Authors of the highest scoring abstracts appealing to the widest audience are invited to give a featured presentation in a Plenary Session. In this format, the presenter will have 15 minutes for their presentation followed by 5 minutes of questioning led by an expert interactive discussant.

Oral Presentation:
Authors whose work is selected for oral presentation are scheduled in one of 53 Oral Sessions organized by theme. Each 90-minute session will include six 10-minute presentations, each followed by 5 minutes of discussion and questions from the audience, moderated by the session co-chairs.

Mini Oral Presentation:
Authors whose work is selected for mini oral presentation are scheduled in one of 18 Mini Oral Sessions organized by theme. Each 60-minute session will include twelve 5-minute presentations. The Mini Oral presentation is meant to be a "rapid fire" summation of the key learning points of the study. Each presenter will have 3 minutes for presentation (introductory information should be excluded) followed by 2 minutes for discussion and questions from the audience, moderated by the session co-chairs.

Poster Presentation:
Over 800 posters will be presented in 3 Poster Sessions scheduled from Wednesday, April 5 through Friday, April 7. Assigned posters will be displayed for viewing during the day, and abstract presenters will stand beside their posters during the evening one-hour poster presentation time. Designated Poster Discussants have been assigned to circulate through the poster hall to engage poster presenters in quality discussions of their abstracts.
