Each year, otolaryngologists, medical students and researchers prepare to submit some of their research to be displayed as posters at the Triological Society’s Annual Meeting at the Combined Otolaryngology Spring Meetings (COSM).

Researchers can compile unpublished research and data from earlier in their career or choose a brand new topic as the focus for their posters. Before turning in their posters, entrants submit a 250-word abstract of their work prior to the annual meeting. Members of the program committee, who are all fellows in the society, select abstracts meritorious for display in a clinical/scientific poster format. Once an abstract is accepted, researchers can then submit their materials online and arrange to have their posters delivered to the meeting site.
We talked with some of the winners from the 2012 Annual Meeting at COSM, held in April in San Diego, about their projects and the experience.
