Poster instructions for the interactive forum and non-reviewed posters:
NEW - The Interactive Forum and Poster Session will take place in front of the exhibitor area.
Students can set up posters from 2:00pm to 3:00pm
The poster session and interactive forum begin at 3:00pm.
Available area is 40" x 30" (1.01 m x 0.76 m).
The title of your paper should appear in block letters, which are recommended at least 2" (5 cm) high. The remaining text should be at least 1" (2.54 cm) high to be easily legible to viewers who are standing as far as 2 meters away.
Each graph or chart with text should also be readable from 1-2 meters away.
Use bulleted lists, charts, figures, tables, equations, and photographs as applicable to highlight the important technical content of your work.
Provide an Introduction or Outline, and Summary or Conclusion. Keep text concise and highlight the key points and significance of your work (use phrases instead of complete sentences).
The use of color graphics and headline styled phrases in bulleted charts will allow the audience to quickly see the theme of your presentation and grasp your intended message.
It is also a good idea to sequentially number your posted material or use arrows to indicate flow of material. This will indicate to the viewer a logical progression through your presentation. Simply posting the pages of the written version of your paper can lead to a very poor presentation.
Push pins and/or tape will be provided to attach your material onto the bulletin boards.
Your presentation material must be available for viewing and you must be available for discussion during the entire poster session.
