We are pleased to announce that the 2019 Human Performance Optimization Symposium will feature a poster session. This will provide symposium attendees with another way, in addition to the oral presentations to share and exchange information. If you plan to attend the symposium, please consider creating a poster for display at the University Club. Your poster can then be viewed by other symposium delegates at their leisure, as well as during designated times for poster presenters and other symposium attendees to interact.
Posters should address information on findings learned from varying levels of experimentation or applications related to human performance optimization. This is a good fit for scientists, engineers, graduate students, or young researchers. It is also a good fit for practitioners to present knowledge gained from clinical experiences.
Poster categories include: (1) Strength and Conditioning, (2) Sports Medicine and Injury Prevention, (3) Sports Wearables & Analytics, (4) Nutrition. Attempts will be made to place poster in the author's desired category. However, posters may be reassigned to alternate categories as needed.
The applicant is responsible for assuring the submission information complies with the requirements. Posters will be peer reviewed by members of the Poster Committee prior to the symposium based upon the following criteria:• Merit of work (methodology, data & information, soundness of conclusions/observations)• Originality• Significance to the human performance field• Quality (presentation format and professional appearance)
The poster session will be Tuesday, June 11, 2019 from 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm. The times for poster judging will be provided. Poster session awards, generously supported by the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine, are $300/$200 for 1st/2nd place (Best poster/Honorable mention).
Posters must not exceed 44" width x 42" length. (Two poster per board side/face) Poster boards will not come with push pins. Please bring your own materials with you to hang your poster.
**The submission deadline is April 30, 2019** (Deadline has been extended to May 15th!)
One poster from each Symposium thematic area will be chosen to give a five-minute oral presentation of your poster during the symposium program.
