Poster board specifications
- Free-standing boards in a horizontal format.
- Usable dimensions: 2.31 meters x 1.14 meters (91 inches x 44.75 inches). Bottom of the poster surface is 0.89 meters (35 inches) from the floor.
- Surfaces are grey in color; well-suited for use with push-pins or tacks. Nails, glue, and carpet tape should not be used to secure materials.
- Both surfaces (front and back) of these boards will be used (your rear is someone else's front). Do not plan on hanging material over the top of the board.
- Format: the poster format should stimulate discussion among presenters and audience members. Audiences respond best to presentations that are a mix of images (drawings, graphs, charts, photos) and text. Presentations that consist primarily of printed text are generally poorly received.
- Visibility and legibility: it should be possible to read any printed material from a distance of ten feet. Use the design elements of color, line, shape, texture and scale to visually lead audience members through your material. Handout materials can accompany your poster. It may include an exact reproduction of your poster or a text summary of the research. Handouts have been favorably received by conference participants, but they are not required. There will be handout holders available for each poster.
- Succinct and comprehensive: strive to convey your message by itself, facilitating discussion with symposium participants. Be sure to identify your presentation with a title and author names. Generally, "less is better." Poster session language is well-suited to enumerated or bulleted lists, short phrases, and visually explicit organization. Save the details for oral discussion.
IMPORTANT: Each poster must include a disclosure statement regarding Conflict of Interest (COI). The statement is required
to notify participants of authors’ financial or non-financial relationship to the presentation contents.
If the statement is the same for all authors, list author names followed by the COI statement. If authors have different COI statements, please list each separately.
Examples of COI:
A) Author #2, Sally Smith: No conflict of interest.
OR - disclose any relevant financial or non-financial relationship
B) Author #2, Sally Smith: Author for ABC SLP Publishers and receives royalty payments
