A poster session is a graphic presentation of an author's research. Authors illustrate their study findings by displaying graphs, photos, diagrams, and a small amount of text on poster boards.
The poster boards are 4 feet by 8 feet long landscape orientation. The useable area of the poster board is 45 inches by 93 inches- and is the maximum recommended size for our boards. The minimum size recommended is 24 inches by 36 inches so attendees can see the poster at a minimum of 10 feet away. The face of the poster board is covered with Velcro receptive fabric. Push pins will be provided for your poster.
Format and Required Information
Poster material should be well labeled and legible from a distance of 10 to 15 feet. The title should be the same as the title submitted with the abstract and appear in boldface at the top. For additional text, use standard American Medical Association (AMA) title case. Nouns, pronouns, verbs, and other important words begin with uppercase letters; coordinating conjunctions, articles, and prepositions of 3 letters or fewer should all be in lowercase letters unless they are the first or last words in a title or subtitle.
