IDWeek Call for Abstracts
Late breaker abstracts will be accepted beginning on May 24, please review the submission guidelines to help you prepare. There are several steps during the submission process. We recommend you begin your submission a few days before the late breaker deadline, July 12.
Submitting an abstract to IDWeek will provide numerous opportunities to have your research reviewed by colleagues and leaders in the field. It also provides an excellent opportunity for fellows in training to showcase their research. Selected poster presentations will be featured in the popular Poster Discussion Round sessions, and selected abstracts will be awarded commendations.
Types of Abstract Presentations
Poster sessions are abstracts that have been selected and grouped together by category/topics. Poster presentations give authors an opportunity to acquaint attendees and experts in the field with the fundamentals of their abstracts and research. Presenting authors are required to be present at their poster boards for one and a half hours on assigned dates.
The presenting author is expected to discuss his or her scientific research and summarize the data into a comprehensive 10-minute presentation, with five minutes designated for questions and answers. Presenting authors are required to use PowerPoint slides to accompany their oral presentations.
Authors do not have to be a member of one of the four sponsoring societies (IDSA, SHEA, PIDS, and HIVMA) to submit an abstract.
