Poster Display Information

Poster presentations will provide a valuable format for dialogue outside the structured plenary and breakout sessions, and thus will be a significant component of this symposium. Time will be dedicated for viewing posters so that participants can interact and use these opportunities to share details of their work, successes and lessons learned.

Student poster authors will be eligible to compete for “Best Poster” awards based on the quality of the abstract, poster, and discussion. Poster presenter winners will be announced during the closing session on Friday morning.

Poster Specifications

  • Posters will be limited to 4 feet high x 6 feet wide (1.22M high x 1.83M wide). 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 poster. Each poster will be assigned a number in advance so that you will know where to place your poster.

  • Poster boards will be freestanding.

  • The poster boards are contiguous, and presenters may not use their own self-contained displays. No tables 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 tape will be available for your use during mounting, but we recommend you bring a supply with you. Multiple strips two inches in length work best.

  • Allow a 4-inch x 4-inch space for a poster number in the upper left-hand corner of your poster.

  • Early morning, mid-day and afternoon refreshments will be available in the poster room each day. In addition, Wednesday and Thursday’s lunch will be provided, and the formal poster session reception as indicated below.

  • Special Note: For authors presenting multiple posters, we make every attempt to position your posters within close proximity of each other.
