AirBorne Conference Pages

Poster Presentation

Attendees are invited to submit a research poster to International Biomedical’s poster presentation contest adding an additional educational element to the annual AirBorne Transport Conference.  Each poster should present individual or group research on neonatal and/or pediatric transport topics. Winners will be selected in part by fellow attendees and the conference education board and will be awarded (2) tickets to the 2019 AirBorne Transport Conference. The posters are judged based on their technical content, design clarity and visual appeal.

*Poster presenters must be registered for conference general session

2018 Poster Submission Guidelines

1. The International Biomedical Neonatal and Pediatric Transport Conference accepts abstracts related to any aspect of neonatal and/or pediatric transport care.

2. Abstracts will be accepted for poster presentations. Poster presenters may be given the opportunity to discuss their abstracts in a brief oral presentation (5 minutes).

3. The International Biomedical Neonatal and Pediatric Transport Conference will consider original research, quality improvement initiatives and/or case reports. Priority will be given to submissions that feature new findings that may lead to changes in practice and improvements in patient care.

4. Awards are available for the best abstracts presented during the program.

5. Presenters of accepted abstracts should notify Bob Lynch at rlynch@int-bio.com as soon as possible if they must cancel their presentation.
