Presentation Types

Featured Research Sessions
As part of the submitted program, these sessions last for ninety minutes and are organized entirely by researchers around a specific topic. Featured research sessions are CME accredited.

Oral Sessions
These 90 minute sessions are comprised of six segments with a different speaker for each segment. They are grouped by general topic and will begin with introductions by the session chairs. Each speaker will have approximately 12 minutes to present, followed by a three-minute question-and-answer period. Oral sessions are CME accredited.

New! A second block of oral sessions is being added to the schedule — one block in the morning and one in the afternoon — to increase the number of speakers included in the program.

Posters
More than 400 posters will be displayed daily by general topic. Posters will be displayed the entire day; presenters are required to be by their posters between 1-3:30 p.m. Poster sessions are not accredited for CME.

Fellowship Awards
A limited number of fellowships are available to presenting authors at both AAIC and the AIC. Fellowships will be provided in the form of conference registration, airfare and/or hotel.
