Poster Guidelines

  • Each poster board is 85 centimeters wide x 1.70 meters high (2.7 feet x 5.5 feet). 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.
