Poster Presentation Guidelines

Visual Guidelines

Due to the nature of our conference space, poster presentations this year will be a short, 5 minute block. Your poster will be presented on a screen, and you will have 3 minutes to give a short presentation of your project. this will be followed by 1-2 minutes of audience questions.

We advise you to use large print and shade or color block letters when possible as smaller texts may not be visible on the screen. Be creative with your poster! Feel free to use figures, graphics, or other features that will help you clearly deliver your research topic to a general audience.

For posters created via PowerPoint, pre-timed animations are permitted, provided that they are not replacing multiple slides. Reminder to test the virtual display of your poster and ensure that it is legible via a computer screen.

Posters should have a 16:9 aspect ratio, and in landscape layout.
