- The poster board number should correspond with the pre-assigned presentation number printed in the final program and provided in your notification letter.
- The final conference program (which will be included on the conference Web site and distributed at the conference) will include the detailed information for each presentation
- Each poster session author will be provided with 4' x 3' inch (120 cm high x 90 cm wide). The board will indicate the poster number in upper right or left corner. Authors are responsible for mounting their posters in the morning of their presentation.
- Poster sessions are viewed by a large audience. Each poster must include text in a large enough font (~20 point font) to be read easily by attendees from a distance of 4 to 5 feet or more. Lettering on illustrations should be large and legible. Photographs should be a minimum of 5 x 7 inches. Material should be displayed in logical sequence (Abstract, Introduction, Methods and Materials, Results, Discussion, Conclusion and References). Please see below a poster template for the suggested format.
- Avoid overcrowding figures and cramming too many numbers into tables. Legends and titles should accompany all figures, tables, photographs, etc. in order to allow their immediate identification
- Posters will be arranged by topic on one of two meeting days (Monday and Tuesday). Presenters should be available at least on the hours when their posters will be posted.
Oral Presentation Guidelines
- We encourage presenters to post their papers on the conference website in addition to a soft copy. The purpose of the presentation is not to present the paper as such, but to highlight its key argument and to open a discussion. As a result, our policy is to give presenters no more than 15 minutes for each presentation with additional 5 minute right after for questions and discussion.
- The conference room comes equipped with a standard audio-visual package setup that will support an electronic presentation, thus, presenters need not to bring their own laptops (If needed).
- Please use Microsoft PowerPoint software to prepare your presentation.
- Experiment with different formats and compression levels to see what works best for your images. Generally, anything that looks acceptable on a 17-inch monitor is suitable when projected.
- Please use an appropriate font style and size in your presentation. The fonts we suggest using are Times New Roman and Arial
- For presenters who prepared their presentations on Mac computers, please try to load your presentation into a Windows machine and check the readability of your slide as many custom Mac fonts may not translate properly on Windows machines.
- Please arrive at your session meeting room at least 10 minutes before the session begins. Take time to familiarize yourself with the set-up at the lectern. You will control/advance the slides during your presentation. Note: Wireless remotes are not provided as a standard item.
