On the day of presentation, Sunday-Tuesday, presenting authors with odd-numbered poster boards should present from 1:45–2:45PM and those with even-numbered poster boards should present from 2:45–3:45PM. On Wednesday, presenting authors with odd-numbered poster boards should present from 10:30-11:30AM and those with even-numbered poster boards should present from 11:30AM-12:30PM.  

  • Each poster board is 6’ wide x 4’ high. Plan your exhibit to fit this space. Typeface should be large enough to be read comfortably by interested attendees from distances of 4-5 feet (1.5 m).

     
  • Mount graphs, micrographs, descriptive legends, etc. on stiff poster board so that they will remain in place when attached to display boards. A few large boards are better than many small ones, and will be easier to mount.

     
  • Illustrations should be made in advance of the meeting. Matte finish on micrographs and other photographic reproductions provides better visibility due to reduction of glare from lights.

     
  • Display a copy of your abstract. You may also tack several copies of your abstract to the poster board to give to viewers.

     
  • Authors are expected to bring their own pushpins, thumbtacks, or velcro for mounting poster materials.
