Poster Competition

Presenting a poster at the AMCA Annual Meeting is a great way to give your colleagues an opportunity to interact with your research while away from the labs and field sites during the Annual Meeting. The American Mosquito Control Association will present awards to 3 posters. The winners will be awarded with first, second, third place prizes. Poster presenters can opt out of participating in the Poster Competition. Individuals participating in another competition category (Student Competition, Latin American Student Competition) are ineligible to participate.

Abstract Guidelines

The recommended abstract length is between 150 and 300 words, except for the Student Paper Competition and Latin American Student Competition, which are 75 words. Abstract titles should be brief, clearly indicating the nature of your presentation. When entering your title online, use mixed case (do not use all caps) and do not put a period at the end of the title. Please do not send supplemental materials (photos, articles or reports) with your abstract. These will not be seen by the program review committee.

The primary abstract contact will receive an email message confirming the receipt of the abstract. Please notify your authors/co-authors that the confirmation was received. All papers submitted will be reviewed by the AMCA Program Chair at the close of the paper submission period. Acceptance notifications will be sent in late October.


Registration Requirements

Accepted authors are expected to register and present their abstract at the 85th Annual Meeting. Accepted authors are expected to pay their own travel expenses and meeting registration fee(s).
