Poster Guidelines


A poster session comprises simultaneous information presentations by several investigators.  The presenters remain in a fixed location for the specified time period and discuss their research personally with any interested individual, using graphs, diagrams, photographs, etc. (affixed to a 4’ x 6’ poster board) to illustrate and communicate their findings.

Poster Board Area:

  • 4 feet high (1.2 meters) by 6 feet wide (1.8 meters). 

Prepare a label for the top of your poster space indicating the title and authors of your presentation.  The lettering for the label should not be less than 1 ½”. The WTC will supply the poster board, with a sign noting your poster number. The number sign does NOT include the abstract title or listing of authors. Posters will be mounted, using pushpins supplied by the WTC.

You must list the abstract title and authors on the top of your poster. The lettering for your title should not be less than 3.5 cm. Illustrations should be similar to those you would use for making slides but more heavily drawn.

All presenters are required to include a statement disclosing any conflict of interest related to your abstract. This should be visible on your poster or poster board.

All illustrations should be made up beforehand.  Remember that your illustrations must be read from distances of about 3-5 feet or more.  Charts, drawings, and illustrations should be similar to those you would use in making slides, but more heavily drawn.  Do not mount them on heavy board because they may be difficult to keep in position on the poster boards.  Hand-lettered material should contain heavy lettering approximately 1” high for minor titles (i.e. questions, methods, conclusions, etc.) and all printing should be a minimum of ½”.  Do not use normal “typewriter-size type.  Keep illustrations and written material simple.  One or two authors should be in attendance at each poster during the presentation time.  Do not allow yourself to be monopolized for an inordinate period of time by a single individual.

There will be a Poster Presenter Check in Counter inside of the Exhibit Hall, located on level one (lobby) of the Moscone West Convention Center.  Please pick up your poster presenter ribbon and pushpins at this counter on the morning of your poster presentation.  Do not write or paint on the poster boards.

The WTC assumes no responsibility for receiving or mounting any poster. The Congress is not responsible for any poster boards not taken down during the dismantle date/time listed on your poster notification.

All presenters must register for the meeting. You may register online here.
