Due to space limitations at the venue, it is possible that not all posters can be accommodated. Abstracts will be reviewed by the Heads of Delegation in February 2023, and at that time a decision will be made regarding which posters will be displayed during the poster session.

  • Complete the Poster Presentation Application Form before January 20, 2023.
  • Submit an electronic version of the poster in advance of the MoP. The exact date for submitting the electronic version of the poster will be communicated to presenters with approved posters.
  • Develop, print, and bring the poster to the meeting venue.

Polar Bear Range States responsibilities:

  • Evaluate and approve poster applications.
  • Distribute poster abstracts with the meeting material.
  • Provide space and materials to display the posters.
