The purpose of the poster sessions is to offer another type of opportunity to present data, new ideas, or best practices.

The guidelines are:

  1. Your presentation must fit within a 48″ x 48″ bulletin board.
  2. Thumb tacks or other means may be used to affix your presentation to the bulletin board.
  3. The text of your presentation should be visible from 3 feet away. Therefore, you should use a large font (20 point or larger) for the primary text, and an even larger font for headings.
  4. You must prepare a sufficient amount of a one-page handout to give to interested colleagues.
  5. Make sure that your name, affiliation, and contact information appear on your poster and on your handouts.
  6. You must remain next to your poster during the poster session to present your best practice, new ideas or data, and to answer questions and engage in a discussion.
  7. You are responsible for setting up your poster session at the assigned time and removing your poster session immediately after the session.
  8. No audiovisual equipment will be provided for poster sessions.

There is no single right way to create a poster.  The goal is to present a concise and readable poster that facilitates discussion with other attendees.
