Your poster is to be set up on Sunday, September 5th between 1700-1830. You are expected to set up your poster during this time only. Posters must be removed on Wednesday, September 8th from 1530 and must be fully removed by 1730. The conference will not be responsible for posters that are left up after this time.

Authors are requested to be in front of their posters during the dedicated poster session on September 7th, for questions, comments, explanations, etc.

Poster Displays:

Posters should be prepared to fill the board as much as possible [eg. 4ft (h) x 6ft (w)] and clearly contain the title of the poster at the top, for display from a distance. Posters should be printed on large sheets of poster size paper for a professional look. Sheets of A4/letter sheets covering the board will not be acceptable.

Poster Display Panels and Support Equipment/Configuration

Lettering should be large enough to be viewed from 4 feet away. Posters will be displayed on 4 feet high by 8 feet wide (122 cm x 244 cm) corkboard. Your assigned poster number is above and your poster is to be displayed on the board which coincides with your assigned number. Pushpins will be provided for you. Do not mount your presentation material on heavy board since the pushpins may not be sufficient to hold it in position. Please be advised that audio-visual equipment will not be allowed for poster presentations.

The presenting author must be registered and paid in full in order for the poster to be presented.

Formatting Guidelines/Suggestions:

• Keep it simple.
• Place the title at the top center of the poster.
• Use large enough font sizes to read easily from 1 m distance.
• Make sure it has a logical flow.
• Use color, graphics, charts, and photos.
• Key points should be in large type.
