Instructions for poster presenters

The recommended poster size is 0.76 m high x 1 m wide (30” x 40” landscape), and the maximum to be no larger than 1 m x 1 m (40” x 40”). The boards are made of a soft material that accepts Velcro tape. A supply of velcro tape will be available in the poster area for mounting your material.

Preparing your Poster

  • We encourage you to create a colorful and visually engaging poster.
  • Please include the abstract title at the top of the poster, as well as the names of all authors and their institutional affiliations. The characters in the title should be at least 2.5 cm (1 inch) in height. Include your contact information (usually an email address).
  • Everything on the poster, particularly drawings and charts, should be clear and simple to comprehend visually, not requiring any oral explanation.
  • Be sure that your overall message is clear and that adequate background material or results are presented to support the overall message.

Arrangements have been made with a local printer for those wishing to print their posters onsite. Full details and pricing (aussi disponible en français) are now available. In order to avoid a last-minute production bottleneck, all files must be received before Monday, 28 July 2014. Pick-up of printed material will begin on Tuesday, 5 August 2014.
