Poster Guidelines

  • Each poster board is 116.5 cm wide x 144 cm high (approximately 3.8 feet wide x 4.7 feet high).  Typeface should be large enough to be read comfortably by interested attendees from distances of 1.5 meters (4-5 feet). 
  • 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. Below is an image of the poster boards that will be provided:
