Call for Posters


IAHCSMM would like to invite you to submit a poster presentation for the IAHCSMM Annual Conference and Expo. Now's the time to put your positive learning experiences in front of conference attendees and showcase them in this important educational offering.

Poster displays, which are prominently featured during the conference for all attendees to read and examine, have become a popular educational offering for Annual Conference attendees. Not only do they offer a unique way to share your knowledge and experience with CS professionals, they open the door for you to highlight a wide range of CS-related successes - from quality improvement, cost saving and patient safety initiatives to infection prevention, staff development and customer relations improvements, and much more.

Submission Standards:

  • Attendee Posters must be non-commercial
  • Vendor Posters may contain commercial information, but must have an educational (not sales) focus
  • Posters must be submitted as a single high resolution image, or as a nine-slide PowerPoint Presentation (Note: IAHCSMM will not accept posters in any other format. If you need assistance with available Presentation Templates, please contact Siri Sorensen by email)
  • Authors must submit a signed Poster Release Form, authorizing IAHCSMM to publish and present your poster both at the conference and online.


All poster submissions must be received no later than 11:59pm CST, Thursday, January 31, 2019. Incomplete submissions will not be accepted.

Display Format

IAHCSMM will convert accepted submissions to both digital and poster formats (mounted on a 4'x6' foam-board) for display during the Annual Conference in Anaheim, California. A list of posters and authors will be printed in the Conference Program and Guide to the Expo, and a PDF version of the poster will be made available online after the conference ends. Please Note: you do not need to be present in order to showcase your poster. We do not have a designated presentation time.

Selection Process

IAHCSMM reviews each poster submission and reserves the right to refuse to publish any poster. Confirmation of acceptance/denial of your poster submission will be given by February 15, 2019.


IAHCSMM will bear the cost for the creation and shipment of the poster to Anaheim for display. If you would like to keep your poster after the conference, all shipping materials and expenses to return the poster will be at the expense of the poster author.

Deadline: Thursday, January 31, 2019
