  1. I am accustomed to seeing the precise dates of the conference in the reference: eg, May 1-3, 2014.

  2. I checked the manual, and you can put the exact date of the presentation (ex. May 20), or the dates of the conference (ex. May 18-22). Either is acceptable. Remember that if the poster topic turns into a published paper, you cite the paper.

  5. As per AMA style, do you have to list all the authors or just the first 3 or the presenting author? Thank you

  6. In AMA style, you need to list all the authors unless there are more than 6 authors. In those cases, you would list the first 3 authors then put "et al." afterward.
