Poster Presentation Guidelines

Please read the following guidelines and information before you begin to create your poster presentation. Give considerable thought to the design and presentation of your poster to make sure that it stands out as an attractive and informative presentation. You want to be certain that the 'reader' of the poster comes away with a clear understanding of your research.

Display Area

  • Recommended size for your poster is 94 cm (width) x 150 cm (height), 37 inches (width) x 59 inches (height)
  • Push pins will be provided to hang your poster.


  • Poster presentations are hard-copy (paper/poster) format only
  • Posters must fit within the designated space listed above
  • The most successful and attractive posters are graphically-produced posters that highlight and summarize the main points, with the poster presenter filling in the details
  • The least effective poster format is a photocopy of the manuscript.

Your Poster Presentation Should Include:

  • The paper title and all authors at the top of the poster
  • A brief introduction, goals, experimental detail, conclusions, and references (make sure this information is presented in a logical and clear sequence)
  • Explanations for graphs, pictures, and tables.

Font Sizes (suggested minimum)

  • Title: 87 point type
  • List of authors: 48 point type
  • Headings: 44 point type
  • Double-spaced text: 32 point type
  • The entire poster layout should be readable from six to ten feet away
  • Be careful in your use of colors, some people are red-green color blind and some colors do not stand out in contrast to others.


  • Posters may be hanged between 8:00-10:00 before the 10:00 Poster Sessions
  • Posters may be hanged between 13:00-15:00 before the 15:00 Poster Sessions
  • Display poster under your paper number
  • Display posters early to maximize viewing time
  • Authors must attend the Interactive Poster Session at the scheduled time to answer questions
  • Posters must be set up by the time the Poster Session begins, or the poster will be considered a no-show and your manuscript will not be published.

Poster Session

  • A poster author or coauthor is required to stand by the poster during the scheduled interactive poster session to answer questions from attendees
  • It is your responsibility to remove your poster. Morning Posters should be removed by 12:00. Afternoon Posters should be removed by 18:00.
  • Posters not removed will be considered unwanted and will be discarded.
