Poster Guidelines

The poster set-up will be from 8:30-9:00 am and poster presentations will take place from 12:15-1:00pm on Saturday April 7th, 2018.

All posters should include the following

  • Title
  • Author(s) and major(s)
  • Main body.  Because each poster will be viewed from a distance of 2 or more feet, it is recommended that the largest possible type is used. Illustrations, in either tabular or graphic format, should be used to support the major points and be clearly identified.
  • Posters should be easy to read and not crowded. Be selective and save non-essential, but interesting information for the informal discussion.

Small Poster Information - 20” x 30” and mounted to foam board

  • Easels will be provided for the smaller posters. 
  • It is suggested that you create a template using Microsoft Word or a PowerPoint slide, setting page size to 20-inch height and 30-inch width.
