Poster Information

Poster presentations will play a key role in the success of ACES 2018. Much time will be dedicated to viewing posters so that scientists, policy makers, planners, practitioners, and managers can interact and use these opportunities to share details of their work, successes, and lessons learned.

Poster Specifications

  • Posters will be limited to 44 inches high x 48 inches wide (1.12M high x 1.2192M wide).
  • Two posters will be mounted per side of each 4' x 8' poster board.
  • Allow a 4-inch x 4-inch space (10.16cm x 10.16cm) for a poster number in the upper left-hand corner of your display space. Each poster will be assigned a number in advance so that you will know where to place your poster.
  • Poster boards will be freestanding.
  • Posters must be presented using the poster boards provided by the conference. The poster boards are contiguous, and presenters may not use their own self-contained displays. Due to space restrictions, no tables or electricity will be provided.
  • Poster boards are covered with fabric, and posters can be affixed using either Velcro or ¾” long push pins. Tape is not permitted. A limited supply of Velcro will be available for your use during mounting, but we recommend you bring a supply with you.
  • Early morning, mid-day, and afternoon refreshments will be served in the poster room each day.
