Sample Preparation...laboratory and in the fieldSM
Each author of a poster paper will be provided with a poster board 4 feet high and 8 feet wide indicated in an upper corner. A chair and an ample supply of pushpins will also be furnished. The author must bring everything else.
Title Banner: A title banner should be prepared which is not more than 4 ft long. Lettering banner should include the title, authors and address.
Poster Units: Each piece of paper, graph, photo, etc., that is placed on the poster board is defined as a poster sheet. Please adhere to the following in the design of poster sheets:
Size: The minimum size of a poster sheet should be 8-1/2" x 11". Larger sizes may used, but size consistency is encouraged.
Type Size: A minimum letter size of 14 point is recommended. Large point sizes should be used for headings. Please use block lettering and not script.
Figures: For best visual effect, use simple to semi-complex figures that can be read easily. Labels should use type at least 18 points high.
Arrange poster sheets for logical flow from top to bottom, left to right. Number poster sheets in order you wish them viewed. Consider using connecting lines (for example, colored tape) to guide the viewer.
Objective: One poster sheet should be devoted to a concise, straightforward statement of the objective of work. This poster sheet should be placed at the beginning of the board.
Body: Other poster sheets should demonstrate in some detail the work that was done and typical results.
Results and/or Conclusions: One poster sheet should present the results and/or conclusion of work.
Set-Up Time: Set-up time will begin one hour prior to each scheduled poster session.
Supplies: The pushpins for mounting your poster will be provided. Supplies should be returned at end of session. Do not write or mark the poster boards.
Take-Down Time: Every author is responsible for removing his or her poster at the end of the session.
