Pins or thumb tacks can also be used on the poster boards. We will provide additional pushpins at the meeting. Abstract numbers will be indicated on the poster boards. Posters should include the title of the abstract and the names and affiliations of the authors. All information should be readable from distances of four 4 feet (1.2 m) or more.
