Send us your best work in simulation!

Do you have exciting research or work in the field of simulation you’d like to share? Submit your abstract! If selected, you’ll be able to present your work in a dedicated poster session to simulation experts from all over the globe.

How do I submit my abstract?

Begin by filling out the submission form by the June 30 deadline. We will let you know if your abstract has been accepted by July 31.

You’ll have opportunities throughout the day to present your poster, including during breaks and a dedicated 30-minute block. Additionally, the posters will be open to conference attendees during the lunch hour for you to present if you choose.

While there is not a strict format for your poster, it should be self-explanatory. We encourage the use of QR codes as opposed to handouts to include additional information.

Remember, the poster session is an informal discussion about your work. Have fun and enjoy the opportunity to share your hard work.

If this is your first time developing a poster, reach out to Michael Blomquist at with the KCRSA research committee for resources or check out SlideModel’s comprehensive guide to research poster design.

  • You will have one side of a 4’ by 8’ poster board to display your work. The printed poster should fit within these dimensions: 4 feet tall by 8 feet wide (1.22m x 2.44m/landscape). Note that it often takes three to four weeks to print a poster.
  • Ensure your poster has the title, all authors and affiliations.
  • Keep illustrations clear and large enough for attendees to easily view from a couple feet away. There is no need to place the wording table or figure in your poster.
  • Use the space to highlight your project. References and additional supplements can be provided with a QR code or handout.
  1. You may arrive between 7-8 a.m. to set up your poster. The JCCC team will be available to assist during that time period. All posters should be set up by the start of the conference.
  2. We will provide a poster board and pushpins for your use.
  3. Please take your poster with you at the end of the conference. Any posters left after the reception will be discarded.

Yes! During the conference reception, we will present 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards. Posters are awarded on a scale of 1 to 5 points in these categories:

  • Contribution to Simulation
  • Design and Readability
  • Cohesiveness
  • Storytelling
