Poster Guidelines

Size of Board

The poster will be mounted on an air wall. Most presenters orient their presentation in landscape format (48″ tall x 56″ wide maximum), but the decision is yours. We suggest that your display be printed on paper or lightweight poster board that can be easily attached to the walls.  You can use Velcro or tape to secure your poster, but we strongly recommend the use of Velcro.  Velcro allows for easy set-up and removal.  Although we will have some Velcro and tape available, we strongly suggest you bring your own Velcro or tape to facilitate the mounting process.

Criteria for Evaluating Submissions

Posters may present information on research findings or program implementation and results.

Abstracts are evaluated on:

Substance and clarity of content

Specificity and practicality
