Preparing Poster Presentations

  • Posters must appear professional and be readable from a distance of three feet (3’).
  • The poster title and name(s) of author(s) should appear at the top.
  • Visuals must conform to the interior dimensions of the board (44.5” high x 91” wide)
  • Material should be displayed in a logical sequence; arrows or numbers should be used to direct readers.
  • Lettering should be a minimum of one inch (1’) high.
  • Illustrations, charts, tables, and drawings must be simple and clear. Heavy lines and color should be used for emphasis.
  • Permanent adhesives are prohibited; pushpins will be provided on-site for mounting.
  • Heavy boards or backing should not be used, as they will not adhere to the display panels.

A shared poster presentation table will be available for distribution of supplemental materials:

  • Any (optional) handouts that support poster research
  • Presenter business cards

Presenters are responsible for the development, shipment, and display of all poster-related materials.
