Poster Abstracts (26th Annual)

The deadline to submit an abstract for poster presentations has passed.  To inquire about submitting a late-breaking abstract, please email [email protected].

All PCF Retreat attendees are highly encouraged to submit an abstract for a poster presentation summarizing your recent prostate cancer research. All submitted abstracts will be publicly posted on the Retreat website and PCF Retreat mobile app. Due to space restrictions, a limited number of submissions will be selected to present posters at the meeting.


Please upload a Microsoft Word document containing your abstract on the Registration webpage.

The font must be in Tahoma, 10pt. Please make sure all formatting and special characters are displayed properly before submission. Failure to follow formatting guidelines may result in incorrect display of your abstract.

Abstracts must include: Title, Authors, Affiliations, Background, Methods, Results, Conclusions, and Conflict of Interest and Funding Acknowledgements.

Word limit is 450 words (abstract body).


Each poster must be a minimum of 36″ x 48″ and cannot exceed 48″ (vertical) x 96″ (horizontal). Poster board assignments and details on poster set-up will be emailed to presenters in early October.

The Poster Session will be held on Thursday, October 24, 2019, from 8:00pm to 10:30pm. Posters will be arranged in alphabetical order by the presenting author’s last name. Copies of the poster on 11″ x 17″ paper can accompany the poster as handouts but cannot be mounted on the poster boards.

For poster presentation inquiries please contact [email protected] or (310) 570-4705.
