See our keynote speaker on May 13th, 2015 from Philadelphia and broadcast live to Georgia! For the first time, poster sessions highlighting student and faculty research will be held on two different afternoons.


Philadelphia’s poster session will be held May 13th, 2015 and abstracts were due April 30th.  The official poster competition will be from 12:00pm to 4:00pm.

Georgia’s poster session will be held May 12th, 2015 and abstracts were due April 27th. The official poster competition will be from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.  Lunch will be provided from 12:00pm to 1:00pm with judging commencing at 1:00pm. The 5th Annual PCOM Research Day keynote speech will be simulcast from Philadelphia in Room 1040 at 12:00pm on Wednesday, May 13th.

Georgia poster boards are 3 feet in height and 4 feet in width, so the posters will need to be a little smaller than the boards.
