Poster Preparation Guidelines

1.      Poster materials will be displayed on a 36" x 48" poster board on which diagrams, graphs, data, pictures and a small amount of text may be mounted. Thumbtacks and poster board will be provided for mounting materials. No audiovisual equipment is available. Poster authors may make preprints of their papers available to participants.


2.      Posters be prepared should be easily understood. The content of each poster should be clearly divided into sections including introduction, problem definition (or aim of work), work summary, results, and conclusions.


3.      General guidelines are:


a.   Legibility: The poster should be readable from a distance of at least 5'. Suggested sizes are a minimum graph size of 10" (25 cm), section heading letters of 3/4" (2 cm), and text and figure lettering not less than 3/8" (1 cm).

b.   Heading: A heading label including the title, author name(s), and the primary author(s) address should be included. The recommended lettering size is 1-3/16" (3 cm). This should be mounted at the top of the poster board.

c.    Titles: All figures and tables should be titled.

d.    Dimensions: The entire size of the poster material(s) is limited to the dimension (36"W x 48"H).
