Poster Presentation
All presenters must have read the IASD ethics statement (see instructions page) and agree to adhere to it. In short,
all proposals should reflect educational, ethical, non-intrusive goals and methods, and presenters should not practice
therapy nor make impractical claims. Workshops conducted in a manner that implies that the leader is the ultimate
authority on the meaning of the dream, rather than the dreamer, are unacceptable. Workshops and dream groups
leaders in particular must take care to abide by the IASD ethics statement. Furthermore, it is considered
unprofessional and unethical at this conference for presenters to use direct solicitation or persuasion for economic or
self-aggrandizement, such as openly advertising and selling of books or services during the presentation. You may
briefly reference a book or practice if it forms the source material in support of your presentation but you may NOT
overtly promote or sell your books, products or services in the session spaces. Presenters who wish to sell their
books or products must do so through the bookstore. Note this in the Book Listing box below and special forms will
be sent to make arrangements with the bookstore.
* Check here that you have read and agree to adhere to the IASD ethics statement and terms stated in it.
* Did you receive commercial support or sponsorship for any aspect of the preparation or delivery of your
presentation - OR - is there any other relationship "that could reasonably be construed as a conflict of interest? If
yes, please specify here and disclose this information in your abstract and during your presentation. If the conflict
involves presenting for the purposes of promoting products or services please keep in mind that presenters must
agree to follow the IASD ethics code which prohibits such promotion during presentations or in session spaces.

required to be at their posters to discuss them. Posters may remain up past the formal session but

placed around the periphery. There may be a table in the center of the room for placing handouts or
copies of your paper. IASD will provide a 40" by 30" foam board and easel for Poster papers.
SCHEDULE RESTRICTIONS. Poster sessions will be scheduled on specific dates and presenters are expected to
attend at these dates and times. Check the Schedule-at-a-glance template on under
Program > Schedule for the Poster session planning. Note that this schedule can vary without notice so check the
conference website frequently for the latest plan. Once scheduled, based on the needs of the majority or other
constraints, we will be unable to accept presenters who cannot attend at those times. We are interested in your
scheduling needs in the event there is flexibility, so do specify dates or times of day you would NOT be available to
present - indicate "not available on (date) or (dates)." We will attempt to meet your requests, but note that such
limits can risk rejection of your submission if the schedule does not permit.
