The development and presentation of posters promotes interdisciplinary sharing and collaboration, and facilitates the exchange of ideas, information, and practical strategies for managing the many challenges faced by research professionals. If your institution has an innovative program related to the successful work of HRPPs/IRBs, or if you are you conducting empirical research or conceptual analyses of topics or questions relevant to research involving human subjects, consider participating in the AER17 Poster Program. AER17 will take place on November 6-8, 2017, in San Antonio, TX.
Poster abstracts should be based upon new program initiatives, empirical research, or conceptual theses or analyses. PRIM&R's poster format includes five designated sections for each abstract category and, in total, these sections make up the body of the abstract. Abstracts must include information in each section to be considered. Below find information on each poster category and submission requirements:
To submit an abstract, complete the online submission form by April 21, 2017 at 5 PM ET. Late abstracts will not be considered. Please review all information pertaining to abstract categories and submission format, as well as the submission guidelines before submitting an abstract online. Decisions will be sent via email to poster authors by June 30, 2017.
This year, PRIM&R will pilot a program for authors who have implemented programs or started research, but who will not yet have results by April 21, 2017 at 5 PM ET. PRIM&R will allow authors to submit data and conclusions at a later date (see below) and their posters will be considered for one of 10 late-breaking poster slots.
In that there will only be 10 late-breaking poster slots, it is highly recommended that poster authors who have data submit their complete application by the deadline April 21, 2017 at 5 PM ET. Even if a late submission is considered worthy of being accepted into the program, it may not be accepted due to the space restrictions of this late-breaking program.
Please review the following carefully if you feel your poster may fall into this category:
Posters accepted for inclusion in the Poster Program will be displayed onsite at the conference in the Exhibit Hall, and outstanding work will be featured during the "Innovations in…" panel series (three concurrent panels on different themes featuring three posters each).
A poster is a visual presentation that combines text and graphics that illustrates the processes and results of your project or explores and analyzes a concept related to research involving human subjects. A poster must clearly articulate the question or problem you are addressing, a description of how you addressed the question or problem, and an explanation of how the work contributes to the field of advancing ethical research. Whenever possible, posters should incorporate illustrative elements such as tables, graphs, or photographs.
No. However, if you are interested in becoming a member, please review the range of benefits that come with membership and contact Korin Roehm, membership assistant, to get started.
Review the information on this page about poster categories, submission format, and guidelines, and then submit an abstract using the online submission form. Abstracts must be submitted by April 21, 2017 at 5 PM ET.

Yes, it is permissible to submit an abstract drawn from previously published materials (except for posters already accepted and displayed at an AER Conference).
This year, PRIM&R will pilot a new program for authors who have implemented programs or started research, but who will not yet have results by April 21, 2017 at 5 PM ET. PRIM&R will allow authors to submit data at a later date and their posters will be considered for one of 10 late-breaking poster slots. Please note that abstracts submitted via this method are not guaranteed inclusion in the program – there is limited space. Poster authors who have data/results are highly encouraged to submit their abstract by the deadline date listed. Please see the section above on late-breaking poster slots for more information on the process of submitting data at a later time.
Yes. The electronic submission form allows abstract authors to include 500 words for the body of their abstract. The abstract title, authors, keywords, and funding information (if applicable) are not included in this word count.
The Poster Abstract Subcommittee, which is composed of volunteers from among the PRIM&R membership, will review all abstracts and select those that will be presented at the conference.
The Poster Abstract Subcommittee will select authors with outstanding submissions to present their work orally during a special panel series titled, "Innovations in…"
You can view abstracts submitted to prior conferences on PRIM&R's Knowledge Center.
