Abstracts scheduled for presentation in poster sessions will be grouped by topic, assigned a program and board number, and will appear in the Annual Meeting Program. In addition, the Annual Meeting Program abstract listings will specify the time that presenters are expected to be at their assigned poster in the Exhibit Hall to discuss their work. Regular and late abstracts will be included online at www.ascb.org/meetings. For purposes of citation they are considered to appear as a supplement to Molecular Biology of the Cell.

*If you wish to keep your poster, you must remove your poster no later than 5:00 pm on Tuesday, December 18. After 5:00 pm on Tuesday, December 18, no attendee will be admitted to the Exhibit Hall. Posters left on poster boards after 5:00 pm on Tuesday, December 18, will NOT be returned to the author. The ASCB is not responsible for posters, posters left on boards, or containers left in the Exhibit Hall at any time during the meeting.
The poster board surface area is 3'8" (1.1 m) high by 6' (1.828 m) wide. Prepare a label for the top of the poster, indicating the assigned program number of the abstract, its title, and all authors. The lettering for this section should not be less than 1" (2.5 cm) high. A copy of the abstract, in large type, should be posted in the upper left-hand corner of the poster board. Illustrations should be made in advance of the meeting. They will be read from a distance of three feet or more. Charts, drawings, and illustrations should be similar to those that would otherwise be used in making slides, but preferably simpler and more heavily drawn; they should not be elaborate. Simple use of color can be added for emphasis. Do not mount illustrations on heavy board as it may be difficult to keep them in position on the poster board. Hand-made material should use appropriately heavy lettering that is at least 3/8" (1 cm) high. Shade block letters where possible. Text should be printed in a font large enough to be read comfortably from a distance of four to five feet (1.5 m). It may also be useful to bring a pad of paper and felt marking pens.
Remember to bring thumbtacks, pushpins, or velcro.

The American Society for Cell Biology is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization approved to conduct its educational and scientific activities. It is a violation of the Internal Revenue Code's ban on private inurement and private benefit for a charitable organization to allow its name to be appropriated for use for private aggrandizement. A charity's name may be properly used only in pursuit of its mission or, if, for the benefit of a private person or entity, only by determination of its governing board.
The U.S. Trademark and Patent Office has granted Trademark Registrations to the American Society for Cell Biology for the marks and accompanying ASCB logo(s): "ASCB®" and "The American Society for Cell Biology®" (the "ASCB Names"). As a trademark registrant, ASCB has the right and obligation to prohibit the unauthorized use of its marks for any commercial purposes. Registered marks are not to be used by anyone other than the trademark registrant or its designee or licensee for the promotion of goods or services.

This does not prohibit anyone from making factual statements, provided that in context the statements are not misleading.
It is not acceptable to use the ASCB name in any misleading manner (e.g., to imply endorsement, suggest that an abstract has been peer-reviewed) to support a claim about research procedures, research results, or commercial products.
Further, higher standards apply where there are references made to ASCB in materials that will be read by the public, media, government, regulatory agencies, and others for whom a factual reference to ASCB could be mistakenly interpreted as approval or endorsement of research by ASCB.
While the sample statements may be factual, they are incomplete and misleading. They misleadingly suggest that there was some level of quality or peer review and/or endorsement by ASCB of the work, product, procedure, and/or claims. The implication is that the research technique and results were subject to--and approved pursuant to--a level of review or analysis by ASCB. In such a situation, ASCB can be referenced only along with a statement explaining what it means to make a poster presentation or present a showcase at the ASCB Annual or other Meeting.
