Poster Instructions for the Interactive forum and non-reviewed posters:

  • NEW - The Interactive Forum and Poster Session will take place on a cruise down the beautiful Florida coastal waterways.
  • Students can set up posters from 4:00pm to 6:00pm
  • Transportation to the cruise ship is provided free-of-charge. Busses will be ready at the Sheraton beginning at 5:30pm, leaving at 5:45pm. The poster session and interactive forum begin at 6:15pm.
  • You must have your badge to board the ship.

Poster Space:

  • Available area is 40" x 30" (1.01 m x 0.76 m).

  • The title of your paper should appear in block letters, which are recommended at least 2" or 5 cm high. The remaining text should be at least 1" or 2 cm high to be easily legible to viewers who are standing as far as 2 m away.

  • Each graph or chart with text should also be readable from 1-2 meters away.

  • Use bulleted lists, charts, figures, tables, equations, and photographs as applicable to highlight the important technical content of your work.

  • Provide an Introduction or Outline, and Summary or Conclusion. Keep text concise and highlight the key points and significance of your work (use phrases instead of complete sentences).

  • The use of color graphics and headline styled phrases in bulleted charts will allow the audience to quickly see the theme of your presentation and grasp your intended message.

  • It is also a good idea to sequentially number your posted material or use arrows to indicate flow of material. This will indicate to the viewer a logical progression through your presentation. Simply posting the pages of the written version of your paper can lead to a very poor presentation.

  • Push pins and/or tape will be provided to attach your material onto the bulletin boards.

  • Your presentation material must be available for viewing and you must be available for discussion during the entire poster session.
