We invite you to present research on all aspects of pulmonary and nasal delivery. The abstract deadline is January 21, 2022. All conference delegates will have access to your published abstract. Posters can be delivered in-person using a physical poster in Florida augmented by a 10-minute recorded presentation. Virtual presenters need only record a presentation. The recorded presentation due date is April 11, 2022.

Accepted abstracts will be published in the Conference Proceedings and those from graduate students will be automatically eligible for the VCU RDD Peter R. Byron Graduate Student Award. For in-person presenters the award covers registration fee, travel expenses and accommodation up to a maximum of $2000. For virtual presenters the award is $1000. Eligible in-person and virtual student presenters should be prepared to answer questions from Virginia Commonwealth University’s judging panel.

Posters on the Podium will showcase editor-selected posters from presenters who have travelled to Florida during a series of ten-minute live presentations in the main auditorium followed by a fast-paced Q&A session. Virtual and in-person presenters will be featured in online Knowledge Spaces.

When and Where?

Posters will be continuously accessible to in-person delegates from 10:00 AM until 7:00 PM on Monday, May 2 and from 8:30 AM to 7:00 PM on Tuesday, May 3 in the International Ballroom. The Poster and Exhibition Session will be the only RDD event during the following times:

The Poster and Exhibition floorplan will be designed around Knowledge Spaces with generous spacing between exhibit tables and posters to ensure that everyone is safe, while allowing you to engage with delegates.

Poster Abstract Submission

We strive to publish impactful, scientifically accurate high-quality abstracts. Those with a high chance of acceptance:

  • Describe recent, relevant experiments, innovations and insights
  • Include data or outline groundbreaking concepts or approaches
  • Support claims and conclusions with data or references, especially those making comparisons to competing commercial products
  • Use scientific language understandable by researchers in the field
  • Have not been presented at other conferences.

Three- to five-page poster abstracts should be submitted in Microsoft Word. Use double-spaced Arial 12-point font. Please follow instructions in the Poster Abstract Guidelines and share these with any colleagues or third-party vendors who are assisting you.

  • A reviewer will evaluate your submitted poster abstract and communicate a decision to the primary author before March 4, 2022. Reviewers may accept, reject or request modifications. Corrections must be made within 5 days.
  • You must obtain and send us permission from the original publisher to include previously published materials in your poster abstract. Permission should be sent to info@rddonline.com. Most publishers have their own process to request permission but if not, please use our Copyright Permission Request Form.
  • Your reviewer will accept or reject your final abstract before March 25, 2022.
  • You must E-mail a signed Copyright Transfer Form (as a PDF) to info@rddonline.com by March 25, 2022 so we can publish your work. Authors retain the right to use the content of their articles as they see fit, including extending their work into manuscripts submitted to journals. The Copyright Transfer Form gives RDD ownership of the final typeset abstract. We grant complimentary permission to use tables, figures and verbatim quotations in journal articles in exchange for acknowledgement that RDD was the original publisher.
  • The publisher will typeset your abstract and email you PDF proofs to review and correct. You should return the proofs by email within 48 hours of receipt. Please only make typographical corrections at this stage.
  • Questions about the publication process should be sent to Richard Dalby, University of Maryland.

Physical Poster Preparation Guidelines for Presenters Traveling to Florida

Physical posters give you the opportunity to display innovative research and technology and interact face-to-face with in-person conference delegates. You are also strongly encouraged to prepare an on-demand recorded presentation in order to share your work with virtual conference delegates (see below for details). Taking this extra step allows all delegates to ask you questions using Messaging and means you are ready if invited to participate in Posters on the Podium.

Your poster must be less than 45 inches (1.1 meters) tall and 90 inches (2.2 meters) wide. Designs using text and easily interpreted, eye-catching graphics readable from 6 feet (1.8 meters) garner most attention. Focus on one or two themes and keep the design simple to emphasize your main findings. There’s no need to include a lot of background information.

Poster content must be closely related to your published abstract with all claims and conclusions supported by data or references. Do not include wildly speculative or unsubstantiated comments.

We will provide supplies to mount your posters on a board. A skirted, 12-inch (0.3 meter) wide table beneath your poster will allow distribution of copies of your poster and other literature. It also facilitates demonstrations of small handheld devices or use of a laptop, but is unsuitable for anything heavier than 10 lbs. Posters do not have access to electricity.

Please be present at your poster to answer questions for at least an hour each time the dedicated Poster and Exhibition is scheduled. If you do not intend to stay the whole time, it is helpful to display a sign showing when you will be present. Messaging will also be available via the Conference website to encourage discussion with virtual and in-person delegates.

Physical Poster Set-up and Take-down

  • Set-up is encouraged on Sunday, May 1, between 3:00 PM–7:00 PM. You can register at the same time. Late arrivals may set up on Monday, May 2, from 7:30 to 9:00 AM
  • Go to the International Ballroom where our staff will direct you to your poster location and assist with mounting your poster. Do not set up in a different location
  • To protect your property, hotel security will not allow access to the Poster and Exhibition area from Sunday at 7:00 PM until Monday at 7:30 AM. We recommend that you take small, high-value items such as laptops and prototype devices with you when you are not at your poster or when leaving the space for the evening
  • A Poster and Exhibition Floorplan will be provided to all registrants
  • Posters must be removed before 7:00 PM on Tuesday, May 3


The meeting organizers and the Omni Orlando at ChampionsGate expressly disclaim responsibility for loss or damage to any items you bring into the Poster and Exhibition space.

On-Demand Narrated Presentations Guidelines for All Presenters - Due April 11, 2022

All conference participants want to see your innovations but not everyone is able or wants to travel to Florida. We therefore ask both in-person and virtual presenters to create a compelling 10-minute narrated slide presentation that gives delegates a good appreciation of your work wherever they are. The RDD audience is familiar with many aspects of nasal and pulmonary delivery so keep the background short. Focus on clearly presenting data and conclusions in your abstract. Ensure all claims, especially those that mention competitors, are supported by data or references. Do not include wildly speculative or unsubstantiated comments.

Approximately 8 slides should first be prepared using PowerPoint before using the recording function to add your voice-over narration. Presentations that exceed 10 minutes may end abruptly once posted on our platform. Practice your timing before making your final recording.

We offer the following as a guide:

Slide Count

  • 1 Slide: Shows your presentation title (exactly the same as your poster abstract), names of all presenters and their institution(s). Optionally, include contact information and the presenter's photo. Please note that you are consenting to this information being visible to delegates on all RDD websites when you send us your slides
  • 1 Slide: Background / Introduction
  • 1 or 2 Slides: Methods
  • 3 or 4 Slides: Data / Conclusions

Slide Preparation

  • 16 x 9 is the preferred slide format
  • Some delegates will be viewing your slides on a small screen. Don’t allow busy slides, small fonts, complex backgrounds and institutional logos to diminish your message
  • Ensure the axes on graphs are clearly labeled and that highly visible lines or symbols differentiate among data sets. Provide a key

Voice-over Narration

Adding your voice-over narration is easy. This How-To-Video supplements the summary below.

  • Prepare to record in a quiet location
  • Open your presentation and click the Slide Show tab
  • Check that your microphone is set up correctly. A headset microphone often produces the best quality audio
  • Select the slide where you want the recording to begin, then click Record Slide Show and start talking
  • Click End Show to stop recording
  • A Save dialog box appears. Click Yes to save your recording, or No if you want to record it again. Saving overwrites anything you've previously recorded. It is possible to re-record individual slides
  • Click Play from Start to review your recording

Submit Your File

Send your final PowerPoint (.pptx) file to info@rddonline.com before April 11, 2022. If the file is too large to e-mail, your organization may have a preferred file transfer protocol (FTP), but if not, we recommend using wetransfer.com.
