Poster Information

Poster Specifications

  • Posters selected from abstract submissions will be displayed during a formal poster session and reception with authors available for discussion.
  • 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.
  • Posters must be presented using the poster boards provided by the symposium. The poster boards are contiguous, and presenters may not use their own self-contained displays. Due to space constrictions, 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 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.
  • Refreshments will be served in the poster session room each day. In addition, there will be a formal poster session reception Tuesday evening.
  • Sponsored by GSD, FCI, and ESSIE, poster presentation contest will be held during the poster session. The top three poster presentations will be announced on April 3rd and awarded 1st place ($500), 2nd place ($300), and 3rd place ($200). Reference the Poster Presentation Contest page for details.
