Cluttered or over-populated posters with too many words should be avoided.
- Posters must be no larger than 44″ X 44″. Free-standing display boards and mounting devices will be provided.
- Posters should be prepared as a single poster (rather than a collage).
- Either Arial or Times New Roman font must be used.
- Font size in must be no smaller than 24 pt (Arial) or 28 pt (Times New Roman).
- Posters that do not conform to the above guidelines may not be displayed.
Additional Advice for Posters
- Bulleted points are encouraged.
- Text should contrast well with background. If necessary, shade text boxes to a solid color to help text stand out. Also, choose color combinations wisely (e.g., do not use green font on a red background). Avoid using photos as the poster background when the photo distracts from reading the content.
- When using text, convey information succinctly. Provide only key aspects of each section (i.e., Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion).
- Provide sufficient separation between sections.
- Keep figures/tables simple and large enough so that they can be interpreted from several feet away or read on a computer screen (remember text constraints listed above).
- Photographs should be well focused and easily interpretable.
- Don’t dwell on methods unless the poster’s subject matter is methodology (i.e., new and innovative ways of doing things).
- The poster number will identify the specific poster board upon which you are to display your poster. Please consult the NAAG Science Program for the number associated with your poster.
- The formal poster session will be held on Wednesday evening. Poster Session presenters are asked to accompany their poster from 7:00 to 9:00 PM during that evening for the formal review period. All posters will be displayed in the poster viewing room at the conference hotel for the remainder of the conference.
