Poster Preparation

  • Multieposter will provide you with a link to upload your poster file before July 6, 2016.
  • Once your file is processed you will receive an email notification to review your ePoster.

General Poster Presentations

  • Poster Display Dimensions: 4 feet wide by 4 feet high display (44" x 44" usable surface)
  • Poster material should be printed on presentation board or stiff paper.
  • Posters are increasingly taking the center stage in many scientific conferences. Think "quality" when you put your poster together. A poorly and haphazardly put together poster reflects negatively on the authors and the institution they are from.
  • The text should be large enough such that it would be readily readable at a distance of 5 feet from the poster. The text should be double spaced and not smaller than 16-points.
  • Note that sans-serif fonts (e.g., Arial, Helvetica) are easier to read than serif fonts (e.g., Times Roman)
  • Organize the material in a sequential columnar (top-to-bottom/left-to-right) format as opposed to a row-wise format (left-to-right/top-to-bottom). This would make it easier for multiple people to read the poster at the same time.
  • For General Poster discussions, be prepared to interact with any interested attendees.
