Poster Preparation Tips

The content of each poster should be clearly divided into sections including introduction, experimental aim (or problem definition), work summary, results, and conclusions. Diagrams, graphs, data, pictures and a small amount of text may be mounted on the 48" x 48" cork board which we will provide. Push pins will be provided for mounting materials. No audiovisual equipment is available. Poster authors may make copies of their posters or papers available to participants.

Legibility - The poster should be readable from a distance of at least 5'. Suggested sizes are a minimum graph size of 10" (25 cm), section heading letters of 3/4" (2 cm), and text and figure lettering not less than 3/8" (1 cm).

Heading - A heading label including the title, author name(s), and the address of the primary author(s) should be included. The recommended lettering size is 1-3/16" (3 cm). This should be mounted at the top of the poster board.

Titles - All figures and tables should be titled.

Dimensions - The entire size of the poster material(s) is limited to 48" x 48".
