INSTRUCTIONS FOR PRINTED POSTER PRESENTATIONS

Posters will be grouped by topic, numbered, and listed in the printed Program. The number assigned to your poster presentation in correspondence and in the convention program materials will correspond to the poster board which you must use. Poster sessions will be scheduled on Friday, June 17th through Sunday, June 19th and will be 90 minutes in length. Because of schedule constraints, FIFTEEN MINUTES will be allowed during your scheduled presentation time for setup and dismantle: 10 minutes to mount your posters and 5 minutes to remove them.

**PLEASE BE AT YOUR ASSIGNED SPACE ON THE DAY AND TIME SPECIFIED IN YOUR ACCEPTANCE LETTER TO PRESENT YOUR POSTER. YOUR POSTER WILL ONLY BE DISPLAYED FOR THE TIME SPECIFIED IN YOUR ACCEPTANCE LETTER.

PREPARATION OF POSTERS:

You will have a space of approximately 4′ high by 8′ wide for your poster. The poster board surface will be Velcro. Pins will be supplied onsite.

Prepare a label for the top of your poster space, indicating title and author(s). A copy of your abstract (preferably in English and French), in large typescript, should be posted in the upper left-hand corner of the poster board. Heavy board may be difficult to keep in position on the poster board. Do not write on or mark the poster boards or the poster board numbers.

TIPS ON MAKING POSTERS

  1. All lettering should be legible from a distance.
  2. Charts, drawings, and illustrations should be kept as simple as possible; coloring can be useful to add emphasis and clarity. Captions should be brief and labels few but clear.
  3. It helps the viewer if you can indicate a preferred sequence to follow in studying your material.
  4. Ideally, your poster should be self-explanatory so that you are free to supplement and discuss particular points.
