Fifth Florida Marine Mammal Conference

Poster Information

Poster presentations will play a key role in the success of Aquatic Ecosystem Health 2015. Posters selected from abstract submissions will be displayed on poster boards in Ballroom B/C, where all the refreshment breaks will be held. Much time will be available for viewing posters so that attendees can interact and share details of their work, discuss techniques and experiences, and acquire a broader perspective about the aquatic ecosystem.


Poster Specifications

  • Posters will be limited to a board display space that is 4’10” high x 5’10” wide (1.47 m high x 1.77 m wide).
  • Allow a 4-inch x 4-inch space (10.16 cm x 10.16 cm) 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.
  • Boards are outlined with a frame, so it is suggested that poster presenters cut back 1-2 inches (2.54-5.08cm) on each side of the final printed poster so it is slightly smaller than the board.

  • Posters must be presented using the poster boards provided by the conference. Poster boards will be freestanding and contiguiously contected. Due to space constrictions, no tables or electricity will be provided.
  • Mounting supplies will be provided.
  • NOTE: All posters will be on display for the entire Marine Mammal portion of the conference. Poster presenters will be asked to stand at their poster during the Poster Session on Tuesday (see below).
