Poster Sessions

Each poster will be assigned a display space of 48" H x48" W (roughly 1.2 m x 1.2 m). Posters will be grouped by discipline and subject matter. Each presenter will be given at least two hours for poster display, although more time may be available. Presenters should set up their posters no later than 15 minutes before the beginning of their presentation session and are expected to be available to discuss their work while their poster is on display. Posters should be removed within 15 minutes of the close of the session. Student posters will be judged for Awards of Excellence. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that students be available for questions until all of the judges have seen their posters.

Please check our current Newsletter for the most up to date information on posters.

A web site with much useful information pertaining to poster presentation is that prepared by G.R. Hess, K. Tosney, and L. Liegel, 2006, Creating Effective Poster Presentations. CLICK HERE to enter the site.
