Poster Information

Poster sessions will take place on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday during the conference. Posters are to be mounted during lunch on the day you are presenting so that conference attendees can visit them throughout the afternoon.

You will be allotted a 4' x 4' (1.2 m x 1.2 m) space per poster with 2 posters mounted side by side on each tack board. Mounting material (push pins) will be provided. 

Poster Printing

Unfortunately, we cannot print posters for conference delegates. However, there are a number of printing companies with offices in Palo Alto that you can send a .PDF file to and have them print your poster for you to pick up when you arrive. Most will print within 3-5 days, so it is recommended to arrange printing in advance!
