Poster Information

Instructions for Poster Presenters

Abstracts accepted for poster presentation will take place in the Exhibit Hall on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, October 15-17, and accepted posters will be scheduled for display on one of those days. Presenting authors will receive the assigned date and time of their poster presentation, along with the assigned poster number, when acceptance notifications are sent out in July. No changes in dates or times will be permitted.

Each presenter is responsible for putting up and removing his/her own poster material. Poster set-up times may be found below. Authors will need to wear their registration badge to enter the Exhibit Hall, as it will not be open to attendees during the poster set-up times. All poster boards will be located in the rear of the Hall.

Posters should remain on display until 7:00 pm on Sunday, 4:00 pm on Monday, and 4:30 pm on Tuesday. The College cannot be responsible for these materials and any posters not removed at the end of the daily sessions will be discarded.

Each presenter is assigned a poster bulletin board that is 4 ft (122 cm) tall by 8 ft (244 cm) wide. The poster should be sized to fit within these dimensions. Pushpins will be available at each board. Each poster board will display the assigned poster number.

If you are the presenting author for two or more posters being displayed during the same poster session, you may ask a co-author to be present at one of the posters during the time you are required to be stationed with your posters. If that is not possible, we recommend posting a sign on one of the posters indicating you will be standing at a different poster, and can take questions about both posters at that location.

Presenting authors of accepted posters must be stationed at their poster during their designated 75-minute period on the day their poster is scheduled for display.

Set-up, display and presentation times are as follows:
