General E-Poster Session


The General E-Poster Session is open to postdocs and professionals. E-poster submissions must represent sound science or program evaluation, which will be reviewed by AAAS staff for acceptance.

Each applicant can only submit one abstract and must include the non-refundable $25 abstract submission fee.

Co-authors names can appear on the e-poster pdf, but they cannot be listed in the abstract submission nor can they participate in the oral presentation video.

Research proposals and promotions of a product or a program will not be accepted.

Submissions that do not meet these criteria will be disqualified.

If you are enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program, please submit to the Student E-poster Competition.

New for 2021 Meeting: Science Policy Showcase

Science has never been more important for informing sound decision-making and ensuring progress for all citizens. For the 2021 AAAS Annual Meeting we will be spotlighting Science Policy. This will include an additional General E-poster category and an invitation for these approved e-poster presenters to participate in live 15 minute feedback and collaboration sessions during the meeting. We would like to thank the AAAS Office of Government Relations with assisting with this program.

Getting Prepared

Please review the 2021 General E-poster Guidelines for important deadlines and instructions on how to prepare your abstract.

All approved presenters will have their abstract, e-poster pdf and oral presentation videos available for on-demand viewing on the meeting website beginning in early February 2021.
