Poster Guidelines

Each author is allotted a 4 feet high x 4 feet wide board. Posters will be displayed throughout the meeting starting noon, May 25. All posters must be removed from the boards by no later than 1:00 pm, Sunday, May 28. Work crews will remove posters that remain on the poster boards thereafter.

The poster should be designed to summarize current research in graphic forms, i.e., charts, tables, graphs, and pictures. Simple use of color can add emphasis. Remember that the poster must be readable from a distance of at least 3 feet. Presentations should be self-explanatory so that the author is free to supplement and discuss particular points. For easy identification, provide a poster heading, listing its title and author(s). Lettering for the title should be at least 1" in height.

Poster materials may be mounted on thin poster paper or cardboard and attached to the poster board with push pins (we will provide them).

Do not mount your poster on heavy or thick backing, as it may be difficult to fasten to the board/easel. Do not write or paint on the board. If you require assistance with mounting or removing your poster, please notify the conference organizers.
