Poster Session Guidelines
Poster sessions are a valuable method for authors to present papers and meet with interested attendees for in-depth technical discussions. Therefore, it is important that you display your results clearly to attract people who have an interest in your work and your paper.
All posters will be on display for both days during the conference. A handout will be provided on-site listing the location of your poster board for your poster.
Poster Presenters are required to stay with their poster for the entire length of the Poster Session they are assigned to.
Preparing your Poster Presentation before the Conference
Your poster should cover the KEY POINTS of your work. The ideal poster is designed to:
- Attract attention
- Provide a brief overview of your work
- Initiate discussion and questions
- The title of your poster should appear at the top in CAPITAL letters about 1 inch (25mm) high.
The author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s) are put below the title.
This year the provided poster boards are vertical and measure 4.17 feet in width and 5.67 feet in height. Your poster should be smaller than the maximum in order to ensure it fits completely.
Carefully prepare your poster well in advance of the conference. There will be no time or materials available for last minute preparations at the conference. If you think, you may need certain materials to repair the poster after traveling, BRING THEM WITH YOU.
Use color to highlight and make your poster more attractive, by using pictures, diagrams, cartoons, figures, etc., rather than only text wherever possible.
The smallest text on your poster should be at least 3/8 inch (9mm) high, and the important points should be in a larger font. Make your poster as self-explanatory as possible. This will save you time to use for discussions and questions.
Pushpins will be provided to attach your posters to the boards.
