Poster sessions present research or analysis on a topic by combining graphics and text on a 4’x8’ board. The poster session presenter is available during an assigned session time in order to interact on a one-on-one basis with the attendees viewing the poster. A well-planned poster communicates its message in a visually and textually powerful way, allowing the attendee to grasp the information quickly.
You will be assigned a concurrent session time slot for presenting your poster; plan to set up your display 15 minutes before the session is to begin. The presenting author should be available throughout the session and be prepared to have the display removed no more than 10 minutes after the end of the session. Keep in mind that all your text and illustrations will be viewed from a distance of more than three feet. All lettering should be at least 2/3' high, 1" for more important information, and preferably in bold font.
Figures and tables should be kept as simple as possible, so that viewers can readily take away the main message. A brief large type heading of no more than one or two lines should be provided above each illustration, with more detailed information added in smaller type beneath the illustration.
Here are some examples from the 2013 Conference:
