Conference Guidelines

Guidelines for Poster Preparation

Each poster presenter will be provided with a 3' x 5' poster board area and mounting pins. The board will indicate the poster number in upper right or left corner. Presenters are responsible for mounting their posters the morning of their presentation and removing them as soon as the session ends. 

Posters should include:


Author name (s)



Background (brief introduction and objectives)

Material & Method (concise or in flow chart)

Results (analytical and in diagrams)

Conclusion (precise and in bullets)

Acknowledgement (Optional)

Reference (Max. 5)

Limit the text to about one-fourth of the poster space, and use "visuals" (graphs, photographs, schematics, maps, etc.) to tell your "story."

Each poster must include text in a large enough font (~20 point font) to be read easily by attendees from a distance of 4 to 5 feet or more. Lettering on illustrations should be large and legible. Photographs should be a minimum of 5 x 7 inches.

Avoid overcrowding figures and cramming too many numbers into tables. Legends and titles should accompany all figures, tables, photographs, etc. in order to allow their immediate identification.

No commercial activities or any advertising may be displayed on the posters. Non-compliance with this rule will result in the poster being removed.

Requests for extra space to accommodate models or equipment should be made at the time of abstract submission and are subject to approval.

Posters will be arranged by topic on one of three meeting days (Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday) and remain up the full day. Approximately two hours each of those days is set aside for poster presentations when no other sessions are scheduled. The authors need not be present the entire time but if not, should post the hours when they will be at their poster.
