• Authors are advised to adhere to the following guidelines. Although details of the format are left to the discretion of each author, they should not deviate from the accepted abstract or paper. Commercial publicity will not be allowed.
  • Each poster presentation will occupy a 2 x4 poster board on an easel, or 1/2 of a tack-board panel 4 ft high x 8 ft wide . One cocktail table (s) can be made available for display of handouts and supportive materials. Chairs are provided for one-on-one sessions. Plan your display to fit this space.
  • The display should present information from left to right. Near the top of the display panel give the title of your presentation and the authors' names and affiliations in letters not less than 1" high, and up to 2" high.
  • All illustrations and the written text should be prepared prior to the meeting. Drawings, pictures, charts, graphs, figures, etc., can be placed on a poster board of the proper size and assembled in sections or pieces on the panel. Pins and thumbtacks will be available for mounting your displays. It is easier to mount a few large boards, rather than many small ones.
  • Limit your display to the essential data and choose what to include to stimulate discussion. All data should carry the message without requiring any additional comment.
  • Most viewers will scan the display for its salient features and when something catches their attention, they will linger for closer study and possible discussion of details with the author.
  • Written passages should be sufficiently large to allow for easy reading from a distance of approximately five feet. Minimize the written text: Summarize, outline, and be brief. Remember, this is not the written paper, but passages specifically written for poster viewing. Matte finish on micrographs gives better visibility due to reduction of glare from lights.
  • Should you care to incorporate a slide or overhead projection into your poster presentation, the organization of this is your responsibility. You must stay within your display area and arrange for your own equipment. Please notify your session chair to make arrangements for whatever equipment you may need, including electricity.
  • Security is not guaranteed. If you have items of value, you may want to put them in your room at night. Neither IMAPS nor its personnel are responsible for lost or broken items.

Any questions regarding the poster session should be addressed to the appropriate chair for your session.
