Poster Presentation Guidelines
The standard format of a poster follows that of an oral scientific presentation and includes Introduction, Methods, Results, Conclusions, Recommendations. A poster, like an oral presentation, cannot (and should not) contain all information you have on the topic. Scientific posters should stimulate interest rather than provide a detailed presentation. If all text is kept to a minimum (1000 words), a person should fully read your poster in less than 10 minutes. Since there will be many other posters, you must make sure your poster is interesting and visually slick if you hope to attract viewers.
- Poster displays will be limited to one side of a 2.5-foot by 3.5-foot tack board.
- The recommended poster size is 22.5 inches x 34.5 inches.
The orientation of the poster must be Portrait
- The poster board number assigned to the poster must be placed in the upper left-hand corner of the display. A poster board number cut-out will be provided and must be visible at all times.
- Be sure to include the abstract title, author and coauthor names, and the institution(s) where research is underway.
- Place your e-mail address, phone, and fax numbers in the upper right-hand corner of the poster board.
- It is suggested that you place multiple copies of a reproduction of the abstract in the upper left-hand side of the poster, written with the headings “Introduction/Background,” Methods”, “Results”, and “Conclusions”. Include your contact information on these copies for attendees who desire further information.
- It is recommended that you hand-carry your poster to the conference, using tubular packaging or a portfolio case. Costs associated with creating and shipping the poster display will be the responsibility of the authors. Velcro (easiest to use), pushpins, or thumbtacks will be provided to mount your poster.
- Refer to your acceptance letter and/or the final conference program for the time and location of your poster session and set-up time.
- The designated poster presenter (author or coauthor) must be present at the assigned space during the designated time to discuss the work presented.
