Injury Prevention Coalition Symposium - Poster Submission Information

Participate in the Trauma Prevention Coalition's mission to advance, promote and distribute information through research, education and science.  At IPCS 2017, present your poster on evidence-based solutions, review of current literature, research or best practices to an audience of your peers and the broader trauma and injury prevention community.


General Requirements

Presentations for the annual TPC Symposium poster presentation exhibit may be submitted by any attendee of the symposium.  The presentation must be made by an author of the scholarly work.  A literature review must include evidence from at least five primary sources.  Selection for participation in the poster session will be based on quality of research, clarity of the abstract and adherence to the guidelines.



All those who wish to present a poster at the meeting must submit an abstract detailing their project in the appropriate style.  

  • Title and Author Information
  • Introduction
  • Materials & Methods
  • Results 
  • Discussion

Abstracts must be submitted through the form below by March 17, 2017.  Depending on the amount of space and submissions, those who are invited to present will be notified by March 24, 2017.


The posters will be displayed in an exhibit space during the annual IPCS 2017 meeting.  Presenters will deliver an overview of their work for the conference attendees and be available for a question and answer question period. 


Poster Guidelines

  • The poster display boards will be provided by the TPC.  The display surface will be approximately 4 feet in height x 8 feet in width. The recommended poster size for display at the meeting is 36” x 48”.
  • The poster should have the title placed at the top with the authors' names and affiliations (optional) beneath it. We recommend lettering of at least 1.5 inches high for easy readability. The title should match that submitted with the abstract.
  • The poster should also include a copy of the abstract and expanded sections of the purpose, methods, results and conclusions as appropriate to the type of abstract. Use large enough fonts for subtitles and text so that the poster can be read from approximately 2-3 feet away.
  • Charts, drawings, and illustrations might well be similar to those you would use in making slides; preferably simple and more heavily drawn.
