We are pleased to inform you that your abstract entitled “Hip And Knee Joint Mechanics During Cutting Maneuver With And Without A Lacrosse Stick” has been accepted for presentation in a poster session at the 59th Annual Meeting and 3rd World Congress on Exercise is Medicine of the American College of Sports Medicine being held at the Moscone West Convention Center in San Francisco, California, May 29- June 2, 2012. Your abstract will be published in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, Volume 44:5 Supplement. Your presentation date and time are as follows:
Session Details Attendees consider the poster sessions an important and valuable part of the educational program of the Annual Meeting and World Congress on Exercise is Medicine. Therefore, the Program Committee has extended the viewing times of the posters. If you are presenting your poster in a morning session, you must mount your poster on the assigned display board at 7:30 a.m. and remove your material at 12:30 p.m. (If presenting on Saturday, you will need to remove your material at 11:00 a.m.) If you are presenting your poster in an afternoon session, you must mount your poster on the assigned display board at 1:00 p.m. and remove your material at 6:00 p.m. You are required to be present at your poster during the entire one and one-half hour presentation time, which is listed above. Your poster must be mounted for the entire viewing time as listed above.
Because of the importance of the poster sessions, we have a policy that applies to those infrequent instances when a session does not occur as scheduled. We note there have been several “no shows” among posters over the last few years, which disappoints attendees and detracts from the program. To address this, and maintain the quality and dependability of the program, the Program Committee now has assigned a chairperson to oversee the poster sessions. The chairperson will monitor that posters are placed on boards as assigned and that the author is present at the poster during the designated time.
Failure to present is considered a no-show and the Program Committee will contact you following the meeting for an explanation. The Board of Trustees has a long-standing policy stating that speakers who fail to provide notice of a reason acceptable to the Program Committee for not delivering an accepted paper will be prohibited from presenting at future Annual Meetings and World Congress on Exercise is Medicine. Also, be advised per Program Committee policy, only the first author may withdraw the abstract.
In the event an emergency arises prior to or during the meeting that prohibits you from presenting your material, please immediately inform Lindsay Cooper in the Education Department at ACSM in writing by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or faxing to 317-634-7817.
Please prepare your poster according to the "Poster Presentation - Session Format" and follow the "Instructions for Poster Presentations ..." Click here for the poster instructions.
The Program Committee has worked diligently to minimize content overlap among the concurrent sessions at the meeting. As I am sure you will appreciate, it is quite an undertaking to create a meeting program without overlapping sessions in any given topical area. Because changes to the time or day of any sessions would have a ripple effect throughout the program, we can not consider any change requests related to the date and time of sessions. We appreciate your understanding.
