Instructions for Poster Presenters

Your poster should be approximately A0-sized (33" x 47" or 84 cm x 119 cm) or no more than 48" on the widest side. The boards are Velcro and Velcro sticky dots will be provided.

Posters can live on for years at your institution after being presented at a scientific meeting. Your poster allows you to speak informally with other conference goers who are interested in your work. Figure out a short overview to start a conversation when you are standing by your poster: what question were you trying to answer and why is this important? Your poster should tell a story visually, with fewer words than a journal article and possibly even fewer than were in your abstract. Text should be able to be read from 2–3 m away and the poster self-explanatory for when you are not nearby.
