To Ship Posters to the Conference Hotel:
Conference organizers are not responsible for posters left after the scheduled removal time.
Your presentation should contain succinct headings that organize and logically display the information. Graphics should be explicit and brief. Elaboration is best done verbally just as if it were an oral presentation using slides. A short and legible “Introduction” and a “Summary of Conclusions” are essential. The poster display should focus on:
All illustrations (figures, tables, diagrams, equations, etc) should be final before arriving at the Poster Hall. Keep text and figure legends explicit and brief. Illustrations must be read from distances of about 4-6 ft. Charts, drawings and illustrations should be similar to those you would use in making slides. Pushpins will be provided to mount your poster materials. Please do not output on foamcore as that material is too thick for pushpins to work.
Readability of Posters
Choose a typeface that is simple and clear. The weight of the type chosen (the thickness of each letter) should be medium or bold. The actual size of the type is measured in “points.” Below are examples of type size for viewing at various distances.
And don’t forget to follow your organization’s approved procurement process when ordering your posters!
Instructions for Formatting Guidelines for Oral Presentations at Concurrent Sessions
Instructions and Guidelines for Oral Presentations at Concurrent Sessions
Concurrent Sessions are anticipated to be scheduled as follows (if you are not sure what session your accepted abstract is in, please contact Michael Easterling at: firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE NOTE: If you are unable to present your work or if someone else will be presenting your work, please notify Michael Easterling, Conference Manager, at email@example.com by Thursday, March 5, 2015. Failure to present deprives the audience and leaves a space in the program that could have been filled by another presenter.
Guidelines and Suggestions for Preparing Presentations
As a rule of thumb, the average 8 ½” x 11” page, typed, double-spaced with one-inch margins contains about 250 words. The average speaker can present approximately 5 of these pages in 10 minutes. Be realistic when preparing your slide set – we suggest that you prepare no more than 15 slides for a 12-minute talk.
Presentations should have an introduction describing the nature and purpose of the research or project; a body (including results/findings, as appropriate,) and conclusions (including next steps, as appropriate.)
Fonts used in presentation slides should be legible and large enough to be seen when projected to an audience – typically, a minimum of 18 pt Arial or Times Roman and preferably larger (double spacing helps.) In general, if you can read the text when the slides are printed 6 slides to a page as a handout, the text will probably be legible on the screen. The background and content of each slide should not be too busy.
Instructions for Formatting and Uploading Presentations
Presentations not received by the due date may not be uploaded on session laptops.
Presentations created in any other format besides PowerPoint 2007 and 2010 will not run or convert to PowerPoint correctly. Conference staff or volunteers are unable to provide technical assistance to convert or fix issues that may occur with presentations. You are strongly encouraged to work with your institution’s technical staff prior to the due date to assure the correct format of your presentation.
PLEASE NOTE: Internet connections will not be available in the presentation rooms.
