Posters must be ready for viewing in the evening poster session on Wednesday, November 9. Poster presenters are required to attend their poster during the poster session. We encourage posters to be left on view for the entire poster session so they can be viewed by all attendees. Posters must be removed by 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 9 at the latest.
Please take note of the following suggestions on poster presentation:
- Divide the contents of your poster into appropriate sections such as: title, author and affiliation; abstract; methodology; data; results; and conclusions.
- Headings above each poster section should indicate its contents and identify the appropriate sequence for viewing the poster by clearly visible numbers, letters or arrows.
- Use a font pitch of no less than 16 for your text since most viewers will be standing at least three feet away from a poster.
- Use larger lettering for the poster’s title, author and institutional affiliation (at least one inch high).
- Avoid fonts that use script or are difficult to read.
- Written material should be concise. Save unessential but helpful or interesting secondary points for discussion with your viewers.
- Graphs, charts and photographs are particularly eye-catching in posters.
- Poster presenters will only need to bring their posters to the conference, as display equipment will be provided.
