WCIO 2018: Abstract Submission 

June 7-10 in Boston, Massachusetts

Abstract submission window has closed and all notifications have been emailed to the submitter.


All oral presenters will have nine minutes for complete presentation. This includes seven minutes for presentation and two minutes for audience questions. PowerPoint presentations should be created using the 16:9 aspect ratio.


SIO will be hosting a Poster Presentation Reception on Saturday, June 9, 2018 from 6:30-7:30 PM. You are required to attend the reception to answer questions from fellow attendees.

If you have requested a printed poster and received emailed confirmation of a space, you are still required to upload an electronic poster. Your printed poster should must be able to fit in the allotted space of 4 feet tall by 8 feet wide (1.22m x 2.44m/landscape).

For more information, download the e-Poster Guide.


On rare occasions, presenters scheduled to present their poster fail to show up and have not notified SIO of the change in plans. When presenters do not appear to present their poster, the planning efforts of the Scientific Chair and Program Committee in providing a quality program are diminished significantly, there are significant cost implications, and the audience is unnecessarily disappointed with empty poster boards. Staff will audit all posters for no shows and this may result in ineligibility for future SIO meetings.


Acceptance of the abstract by the review committee obligates the author to be present. If circumstances prevent attendance, the author must arrange for the poster to be presented by a substitute, preferably a co-author. If you wish to withdraw your abstract, you must submit your request in writing by Monday, April 30, 2018 to education@sio-central.org including the abstract title and first author. Failure to comply may result in ineligibility for future SIO meetings abstract submissions as first author.


For questions regarding the abstract process, you may contact SIO via email or by phone 202-367-1164.
