ACCP invites you to submit an abstract to be considered for presentation during the 2023 ACCP Virtual Poster Symposium (VPS), May 23 and 24, 2023. The VPS was launched in 2012 for those who found it difficult to attend a symposium in person because of travel, funding, and schedule conflicts. ACCP continues to host the VPS as an alternative means for individuals to present their research and scholarship to peers and engage in dialogue with colleagues.

All investigators in the field of clinical pharmacy and clinical pharmacology, ACCP members and nonmembers alike, are invited to submit abstracts. There is a $50 fee to submit an abstract.

The deadline to submit abstracts (EXCLUDING Research-in-Progress abstracts) is March 27, 2023. The deadline to submit Research-in-Progress abstracts is April 10, 2023.

Posters will be on display May 20–28 for asynchronous viewing and comment. In addition, two interactive sessions will be held on May 23 and May 24, when authors and their virtual posters will be available for real-time online question-and-answer interactions. The technology required for presenters and the poster-viewing audience is minimal – a broadband internet connection and a current version of an internet browser.

What is the ACCP VPS?

The VPS involves the electronic submission of an abstract. If the abstract is accepted, a poster is created and saved in standard PDF format. The poster is made available for viewing by all attendees during the designated VPS dates. Virtual poster presenters will be virtually present (either May 23 or May 24 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. [EST]) via an online, real-time chat feature. Presenters also have the option to offer live Q&A via their preferred video/audio platform (e.g., Zoom, Teams, Hangouts Meet) during their assigned poster session. Presenters will be able to discuss their findings with students, residents, fellows, seasoned practitioners, and even family and friends during the symposium. Of importance, VPS attendance is free. All are invited to attend – ACCP members, colleagues, friends, and family.

All abstracts accepted for presentation, except for “Encore” and “Research-in-Progress” presentations, will have full-text abstracts published online in JACCP. Only the abstract title, authors, and original citation will be published in JACCP for “Encore” presentations.
