Poster Blitz


The ARO Council cordially invites all junior scientists, including undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdocs, to submit their poster abstract for the Poster Blitz competition. Based on scientific merit and research area, 20 submissions will be invited to the Poster Blitz session at the beginning of the ARO Midwinter meeting. Those 20 junior scientists will be given the opportunity to showcase their work to the ARO community in five-minute talks during the Poster Blitz. A diverse panel of researchers and clinicians will rank (1) the presenter’s ability to convey the impact of their work, (2) the clarity of the presentation, and (3) the overall impression of the project.


The Poster Pitch Blitz will occur on Saturday, February 9, 2019 from 4:15 – 6:15pm. This year we are changing the format so that students and postdocs will compete in their own, separate categories. The winners of the Poster Blitz will be recognized at the beginning of the Award of Merit Lecture. 


Please submit your application via the  Poster Blitz Electronic Application Form by Monday, January 21, 2019. You will be asked to include:

  1. Career stage (undergraduate, graduate, or postdoc).
  2. A short description of your research, highlighting innovation and impact.
  3. A summary of your contribution to the research reported in the poster.
  4. The primary and secondary area of your research.
  5. A copy of your accepted abstract.


Accepted participants will be notified by Wednesday, January 30, 2019 and will need to submit the slides for their talk by Thursday, February 7, 2019
