Poster Guidelines

The poster session is scheduled for Tuesday, 9 February, from 6:30 pm until 10:00 pm.

Posters will be displayed in the Exhibit Hall, which will be open for poster installation beginning Sunday, 7 February, in the afternoon. Please have your poster in place by 5:00 pm Monday.

To achieve maximum exposure of posters, the Exhibit Hall will also be the location of our daily coffee breaks, vendor exhibits, photo contest, and silent auction.

Boards for the poster session will measure 4’ x 8’ (122 cm x 244 cm) with two posters side-by-side on each board face. Allowing room for the edges of the boards, posters should be no larger than 45" x 45" (114 cm x 114 cm); pins will be provided for mounting.

A well-designed poster is an effective device for communicating ideas, and we encourage all presenters to seek guidance in the preparation of their posters. There are many resources on the World Wide Web to assist preparers; one we find useful is http://www.ncsu.edu/project/posters.

Limited food, beer, wine, and soft drinks will be provided to all regular registrants during the poster session.
