FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THE FORMAT OF THE NANOS 2022 ANNUAL MEETING?
The meeting will be held in-person in Austin, TX.

IS THE ROOM SHARE AVAILABLE AGAIN THIS YEAR?

IS THERE A VIRTUAL COMPONENT TO THE MEETING?
On-demand content will be available for CME viewing approximately one month after the in-person meeting.

CAN I PRESENT MY ABSTRACT VIRTUALLY?
All presentations are expected to be delivered in-person. Virtual presentation may be allowed for uncontrollable events (i.e. government travel restrictions, acute illness) and not simply upon request.

WHAT IS THE EXPECTATION FOR THE VIRTUAL POSTER SESSION?
All poster presenters will be required to upload a virtual presentation of their poster and be able to participate in the Meet the Poster Author session live in Austin.

WHY IS NANOS NOT OFFERING A HYBRID MEETING?
A hybrid meeting is significantly more expensive and requires resources we simply don't have, as well as dramatically increases the cost of registration for each member. Instead, we will offer an on-demand CME option approximately one month after the meeting for those who cannot attend live.


CALL FOR ABSTRACTS


The deadline to submit is October 14th, 2021 at 11:59 pm EST.

New this year! – All posters will be presented as ePosters. There will be two poster sessions where attendees can meet the poster author and ask questions, and all presenting authors should plan to attend the respective poster session(s) for their ePoster.

PLEASE NOTE: There are 3 types of submissions with differing presentation formats and schedules:

  • Walsh: Abstracts selected by the committee will be presented as oral presentations during the Walsh symposium on Sunday, February 13th, 2022.  Abstracts that are not selected for inclusion in the Walsh symposium will be offered the opportunity to present as a virtual poster presentation in Poster Session I on Sunday, February 13th, 2022. Please see separate instructions for submitting a Walsh abstract.
  • Descriptive studies: This includes studies such as case reports, case series, literature reviews, etc. without a comparison group and statistical analyses. These studies are generally not considered for platform presentation or awards. Descriptive Studies will be presented virtually during Poster Session I on Sunday, February 13th.
  • Analytical studies: This includes basic science, clinical trials, epidemiological studies (cohort, case-control, cross-sectional studies, including electronic health record analyses and chart reviews with subgroup comparisons), and quality improvement/evaluation studies. These studies nearly always compare one or more groups of patients/subjects to each other and have statistical analyses. Sub-categories for analytical studies include Basic Science, Clinical Trial, Epidemiological study (cohort, case-control, and cross-sectional studies, including electronic health record analyses and chart reviews with subgroup comparisons), and Quality improvement / evaluation study. These studies are considered for platform presentation and awards. Analytical study posters will be presented virtually during Poster Session II on Tuesday evening, February 15th.
