The 2020 National FHB Forum will feature a virtual poster room.  Everyone is welcome to submit a poster (content protected PDF).  This year there will be a few slight changes to the poster sessions.  There won´t be any set poster sessions; posters will be virtually available for viewing by registered Forum attendees for one week (Dec 5th-11th).

Poster presenters need to attend the corresonding Research presentation session for their poster, where there will be a short Question & Answer period towards the end of the session for Forum attendees to ask questions about the posters.

First authors are encouraged, but not required, to submit a 3-minute pre-recorded video explaining their poster.  For information on how to make a pre-recorded video, please click here.

First authors will receive instructions for uploading a content protected PDF of their poster with an accompanying video (if applicable) to a secure website no later than November 16th.




Graduate students, post-doctoral researchers and early career professionals have the opportunity to present a Flash and Dash (F&D) presentation for their poster during their designated research session.  When registering a poster, the graduate student/post-doctoral researcher/early career professional should indicate their intent to present an F&D and then select the appropriate USWBSI research category that best fits their research.  Flash and Dash presentations should consist of a 5-minute pre-recorded video accompanied by a 3 slide PowerPoint presentation which highlights your research.  These video presentations will be viewed during the selected research session followed by a live Q&A for all presentations given during the research session.
