Podium Presentation

Presenters are not required to state authors' disclosures. The audience will be directed to all authors'  disclosures in the Final Program PDF.

Moderators review the abstracts and conflicts of interest listed by the authors to try to ensure there are no undisclosed conflicts or bias.  Disclosures are listed in the Program PDF that will be sent prior to the meeting and located via the LSRS website.

During discussion times members of the audience will be asked to disclose any conflicts of interest as they pertain to the topic, when they ask a question of the presenters. 


Talks are meant to stimulate discussion and we should leave ample time for audience questions and moderators must be award of leaving ample time for audience questions.

Handouts will be included in the course Electronic Program book.

Rapid Fire Presentations are scheduled to 2 minutes with 1 minute in-between.

Slide Uploads:  Must be uploaded by April 1, 2019 via https://owpm1[dot]com/abstracts/LSRS/acceptance/ use email to log in. Slides must be in 16:9 ratio.

Presenting authors must confirm their participation by Monday, February 11, 2019 for their rapid fire presentation to be included in the program.

Each presenting author may give no more than 2 presentations (includes both podium and rapid fire presentations).  If you need to change the presenting author, please contact the LSRS.  

If presenter is a medical student, the PI or other senior-level author on the paper is required to accompany so as to field discussion questions.

Rapid Fire presentations are limited to a total of 5 slides.  Due to the restricted timeframe for Rapid Fire presentations the program committee requests that the presenter forgo lengthy introduction ensuring that the science is presented thoroughly.  


Visual Abstract presentations are 2 minutes in length, presented from the podium, and are designed to be highly visual and engaging for the audience. Visual Abstracts are podium presentations within the rapid-fire category, however, visual abstract presenters forgo a formal introduction and highlighting disclosure information, informing on the science and outcomes visually.  Visual Abstracts are limited to 3 slides.

Key components of the visual abstract include:  

Summarize Key Question Being Addressed:  This usually comes from the abstract title or the heading of the key figure.

Summary of Outcomes: While abstracts may have more than 3 key findings, the visual abstract will focus on 1-3 of the primary findings of the research.

Authors: List authors, optional to limit to the PI, attendees will possess the abstract in total as well as all authors’ names and disclosures. (see ‘Example 6’ below) 

State Outcome Comparison: A short phrase that clearly states the outcome with some directionality.  For example, “Decreased Need for Blood Transfusions” is used rather than simply, “Blood Transfusions.” As much as possible, the language used should use the same prose and interpretation as the language in the abstract.

Visual Display of Outcome: A simple, single colored icon that represents the outcome.

 Data of Outcome (Units): In addition to stating the outcome, visual abstracts give the numeric representation with clear labeling of the units.

A note to authors: Pre-registration is required for acceptance of printed posters. As long as 1 author on the abstract is registered we will secure a space for your poster. You have until March 20, 2019, to register/confirm this.

Poster presentations consist of a visual display of research highlights on a fiberboard background.  The content of an effective poster presentation should be focused and concise. Poster must be printed and brought to the meeting. We will not collect an electronic version of your poster.

Poster location:  Sofitel Magnificent Mile - Paris Foyer, 3rdFloor, adjacent to the Annual Meeting Ballroom. 

All posters will be on display for the entire duration of the 12thAnnual Meeting Program:  Thursday, April 4 from 7AM to Friday, April 5th, 1PM.  

There will be no formal presentation, however, it is recommended that authors who are in attendance at the annual meeting stand near their posters during breaks to facilitate discussion.

Poster Set-up/Tear-down:

·       Posters must be set up by 6AM on Thursday, April 4, 2019

·       LSRS will provide a poster set-up block of time on Wednesday, April 3rd, from 3PM to 7PM.  Staff will be available at that time to answer questions and assist with set-up. This timeframe coincides with the LSRS Instructional Course and Pre-Annual Meeting Registration  

·       A numbered board spot will correspond with the pre-assigned number which is listed as your ‘assigned ID’ in the Acceptance Notifications. This will be the number by which your poster is identified in all print material.

·       LSRS will provide the pushpins required for attaching your poster to the board.

·       Do not mount your materials on thick poster board as it may be too heavy to attach with pushpins to the fiberboard.

·       Do not write or draw on the fiberboard or use adhesive putty.

·       Posters may not be removed until after the close of the LSRS 12thAnnual Meeting. If your poster is not removed after the meeting has ended, LSRS staff will discard it.

Preparing a Printed Poster:

·       Posters should contain succinct headings that organize and logically display the information.  

·       Graphics should be explicit and brief.

·       Poster Board displays are 4ft high x 8 ft wide. We will display 2 posters on each side. 

·       The dimensions of your poster should not exceed 45 inches wide and 36 inches high, you may use any standard poster size that fits within the 45”x36” space allotted for each poster.

Please note that a card containing your poster’s QR code tag will be placed next to your poster, mid-level on the board. Please do not cover this code. This QR code will link your poster to your full abstract and all authors disclosures and will allow for ease of viewing on the part of attendees.

Posters may not include company produced slides or slides with company logos on them.  This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and the Lumbar Spine Research Society.  The AAOS is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical information and subsequent designation of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
