Poster Session

Attendees of the Canary Foundation Early Detection Symposium mingle at an outdoor poster session.

May 3, 2017

4:30pm – 8:30pm, Woodside

Poster session, wine reception, and Canary Awards will be held in Woodside, CA, following the conference sessions at the Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center. Shuttle bus service will be provided. Parking will be available at Woodside Elementary School, 3195 Woodside Rd, Woodside CA.

Upon registration, attendees are required to indicate whether or not they intend to present a poster. Spaces will be reserved for registered posters only. Submit your poster title upon registration or by email to by April 19.

Poster presentations will be provided with a 48″ width x 36″ height foam poster board, as well as thumbtacks. Please use the Canary logo to recognize Canary Foundation support where appropriate.
