  2. Sign and return the Poster reservation form and presenter's agreement by April 30 to confirm your participation.
  3. Poster presenters who are submitting a paper or extended abstract for the conference proceedings, download and review this document to start working on your paper.
  4. The poster session is primarily a visual presentation (as contrasted with an oral one), therefore it is appropriate to prepare charts, graphs, photos and drawings to convey the message of the presentation.  Use bold color and short, descriptive captions that will enhance the viewers’ understanding of the project or issue.  Pages of text attached to the display board will not be effective.  Posters may be one large panel or several smaller panels.  If using several smaller panels, they should be designed to be easily arranged on the display board during set-up.  Mounting board should be cardboard or heavyweight paper that provides sufficient rigidity. Each poster presenter will be provided with one 4’ tall by 8’ wide tackboard on a stand, on which to display your materials.  Please design your display to fit the space provided.
