Poster Preparation and Display Instructions

For optimal exposure, posters should be on display on Saturday, March 10, 2018, beginning at 10:00 am. Your presence, and/or that of a co-author, is requested during the Poster Presentations session from 1:00 to 2:30 pm. All posters must be removed at 6:30 pm. It is the responsibility of the poster presenter to remove the poster. Failure to do so could result in damage to or loss of the unclaimed poster.

The poster boards will be horizontal with dimensions of four feet by eight feet. Each poster board will have one poster. Your presentation must not be larger than 45 inches by 91 inches. Push pins will be provided on-site to attach your poster to the board.

While preparing your poster, please consult the poster layout guidelines and follow the following instructions:

  1. It takes considerable effort and attention to detail to prepare an effective poster presentation. Please take the time to make yours interesting and informative.
  2. Your poster must fit within a four feet by eight feet space.
  3. Posters should use font sizes large enough to be read from a distance of five feet (one and a half meters).
  4. Each poster should be organized as follows:
    1. A top label indicating the title of the paper (should be the same as the abstract title) with names of the authors and their affiliations.
    2. A summary should be located on the lower right portion and contain no more than five items.
  5. Charts should be simple with bold lines.
