Poster Information

Poster presentations will play a key role in the success of the 67th Annual International Wildlife Disease Association Conference. Posters will be on display in the sponsor display and refreshment room throughout the conference.

Poster Specifications

  • Posters will be limited to 44 inches high x 36 inches wide (1.12M high x 0.91M wide).
  • Two poster presentations will be mounted to each side of the poster boards.
  • 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 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 tape will be available for your use during mounting, but we recommend you bring a supply with you.
  • Refreshment breaks will be served in the poster room each day. In addition, there will be student poster presentations on Tuesday, and general poster sessions on Wednesday and Thursday.
