Scientific posters are an essential element of the CRS Annual Meeting & Exposition. The display of posters allows annual meeting attendees an excellent opportunity to share with one another important scientific achievements and learn the newest technologies in delivery science on a personal basis. Each submitted poster abstract is peer reviewed and chosen based upon predetermined selection criteria. Each year, CRS offers posters in a variety of session categories.

New This Year!

  • Posters are back in the expo hall
  • All posters will be displayed Sunday – Tuesday
