Poster Display Information

Poster presentations will play a key role in the success of ACES. Much time will be dedicated for viewing posters so that scientists, policy makers, planners and managers can interact and use these opportunities to share details of their work, successes and lessons learned. Submit your abstract today in order to take part in this collaborative exchange.

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 Conference. The poster boards are contiguous, and presenters may not use their own self-contained displays. Due to space constrictions, 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.
  • Early morning, mid-day and afternoon refreshments will be served in the poster session room each day. In addition, there will be a formal poster session reception on Wednesday evening.
