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

  • 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).
  • 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.
