For your poster, a board will be provided which measures 4 ft high x 6 ft. wide. Push tacks will be available to tack your paper to the poster. Please note: the conference supplied push tacks are the only means allowed for attaching your poster to the poster board provided.
Prepare your poster well in advance of the conference. There will be no time or materials available for last minute preparation at the conference.
The title of your paper should appear at the top of your poster in CAPITAL letters that are at least 1 inch high. Below the title put author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s). Use pictures, cartoons, and figures rather than text wherever possible. Bright colors greatly enhance the attention of the viewer.
Use text sparingly. State the main result of your paper in six or less lines using 3/4 inch high letters. The flow of your poster should be from top left to bottom right. You may use arrows to lead through the paper.
Prepare a short presentation of about 5 to 15 minutes that can be given to the attendees. Be prepared to repeat presentation several times. Plan to spend the entire session at your poster
