Poster Guidelines

INSTRUCTIONS FOR POSTER PRESENTATION

Your presentation should contain succinct headings that organize and logically display the information. Graphics should be explicit and brief. Elaboration is best done verbally, just as if it were an oral presentation using slides. The poster display should focus on:

Hypothesis or Objective
Methods
Results or Outcomes

The working area for displaying each poster presentation is four (4) feet high and eight (8) feet wide less a two (2) inch frame of all four sides. The surface is fiberboard contained within the frame and firmly supported on “A frame” legs. Including the supporting legs, the display stands a total of six and a half (6 ½) to seven (7) feet high.

All illustrations should be made beforehand. Keep illustrative material simple. Illustrations must be read from distances of approximately three (3) feet or more. Charts, drawings, and illustrations should be similar to those that would be used in making slides.

Prepare and bring to the meeting all illustrations needed for your presentation – figures, tables, diagrams, equations, etc.

Mount your materials on the fiberboard by means of push pins (thumbtacks), which will be provided. Since your display will be held on the fiberboard with push pins, DO NOT mount your presentation materials on heavy board because doing so may make it difficult to keep the material in position.

Please do not write on the fiberboard.

NOTE: POSTER MATERIALS THAT ARE NOT REMOVED BY THE DESIGNATED TIME WILL BE DISCARDED.
