Poster walks are led by expert faculty who review and put into context some of the most significant and thought-provoking research at the Annual Research Meeting (ARM), while providing a venue for networking and informal discussion.

The poster walks are limited to students and Fellows. There will be four poster walks at the conference, one theme during each poster session. Each walk is grouped by topic and lasts approximately 45 minutes. Additional details, including specific times for each poster walk within the poster session, will be added to the online agenda in the coming weeks.

There is no pre-registration for the poster walks, and no additional registration fee. Each walk will be capped at ten participants and accommodated first come, first served. To reserve your spot, please come to the desk outside of the poster hall (Halls A-B, Level 100, Baltimore Convention Center) 20 minutes before the walk starts. (Names will not be taken more than 20 minutes ahead of time.)

*Please note that you may not register to attend a poster walk if you are already scheduled to give a poster presentation during that poster session.*
