First presented in 2014, the Interdisciplinary Spotlight Concurrent Session continues within the 2017 meeting program. This session has been organized around a theme rather than a category and includes a full range of bench to bedside approaches. This year's topic focuses on "Frontiers in Atopic Dermatitis." This session will take place on Thursday, April 27th, 2017 from 2:00 - 4:30 pm. It is listed in the Abstract Status Notification grid as Concurrent Minisymposium 3.

New to the 2017 SID Annual Meeting is "Selected e-Poster Discussions." In an effort to further increase participation and visibility of abstracts submitted to the Annual Meeting, the SID is pleased to add this new feature to the meeting.

Selected e-Poster Discussions will take place during Poster Sessions that will occur on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of the Annual Meeting at five (5) iPad terminals located outside of the Poster/Exhibit Hall. The discussions will be thematic tours of selected electronic posters accompanied by a presenting author. Each poster presenter will be asked to briefly describe their work (3 min), followed by a short group discussion (3 min), that will be held with the help of a moderator. If your poster has been selected for e-Poster Discussions, please join the appropriate group at the relevant         e-Poster kiosk. See the venue map when onsite for dates, times, categories, featured posters, and moderators.


The Come See My Poster sessions give opportunities to select presenting authors of highly scored abstracts to give a brief one-minute (and one slide) introduction to their submitted abstract. This rapid paced session leads right into one of the SID's Poster Sessions...providing both an excellent starting point into the Poster Hall and the generation of excitement for all attendees. Those abstracts selected for Come See My Poster are listed on the Abstract Outcomes Notification Spreadsheet labeled as "CSMP-#" in the session order column. Authors will also receive additional notification(s) on how to plan for their talk.
