Poster Guidelines

Two options are available for your project display.  We will do our best to accommodate your selection, but space will be assigned on a first to respond basis.  If you do not select a display option, you will be assigned a location based upon availability.  You will receive your space assignment approximately 1 week prior to the event.  Your options are described below.  Please select one when submitting your abstract.  If you need special accommodations please include your request with your response in the abstract submission and we will contact you to discuss availability.

  • Table. Tables are 72 inches long and will be shared by 2 presenters. Your presentation should not exceed 36 inches in length. If you are displaying a poster on a table it should be self-standing. Trifold boards (36 x 48 in) are recommended. Please see sample below.
    Example of a table poster
  • Peg Board. Peg Boards are 69 x 46 inches and there will be 2 presenters per side for a total of 4 presenters per peg board. Your poster should not exceed 69 in (W) by 24 in (H) in order to allow room for both presenters – one presenter above and one presenter below. Please see sample below. Trifold or corrugated boards are not recommended for Peg Board displays as it is difficult to secure the thick board with push pins.
