without prior authorization from SNM Scientific Program Chair, may be recorded as an author infraction. Please

This year, SNM will select 10 posters from each scientific track as candidates for poster awards. Candidate posters
will be selected prior to the Annual Meeting, based on their scores. Each award candidate poster will be identified in
the Poster Hall (Exhibit Hall E) by a color-coded ribbon placed on the poster board next to the poster.

All 10 candidate posters from each track will be judged onsite by a panel of experts. The top three from each track
will be announced as winners during the 45-minute “Meet the Author” poster session for the relevant track.

AUTHORS OF MULTIPLE POSTERS: It is imperative that Presenting Authors are available for Q&A during their
scheduled “Meet the Author” sessions. If you have multiple posters scheduled during the same session, post a note
on your poster board(s) to indicate your location so that attendees can find you to ask questions.

        title, author(s) and affiliation(s). All text should be readable from a distance of 10 feet (3.05 meters).

        permitted for educational purposes only; marketing materials for promotional/commercial interests are
        NOT permitted under any circumstances, and will result in your poster being removed from the program.
