Poster Requirements

**Please note this important change to the poster format**  

All Posters will be printed on retractable, free-standing banners this year - NOT TRADITIONAL POSTER BOARDS.  See the poster banner layout graphic below for direction on how to organize your poster.


This year, to streamline the poster displays as well as provide an economical option for our poster presenters, we are partnering with an online signage company for the printing and shipping of all posters. The new format will be using retractable vinyl banners instead of traditional poster boards.  We will NOT have any traditional poster boards onsite at the meeting, so please do not arrive with a poster expecting to mount it on a display board; ALL POSTERS MUST BE ORDERED AS SPECIFIED BELOW.


Banner Format & Pricing

Economy Retractable Banner (1-sided) 78.7”h x 33.4”w

Approx. $115 incl. poster banner, retractable base, carrying bag, and free shipping. (Note: Additional discounts may be available if you create a new account and/or check online) After the meeting, we encourage you to take your banner home with you to display in your lab.


How to Design your Poster

  1. Refer to the poster design layout (to the right) and specs (yellow section below) for how to organize your poster. Abstract numbers should be indicated on the poster itself. Posters should include the title of the abstract and the names and affiliations of the authors. 
  2. Use a minimum 15pt font size (Arial or Times New Roman preferred).
  3. Design options:
    1. If using a graphic design program: Visit eSigns and Download the Banner Template.  Create your file using these specs, then save as a PDF.
    2. If using PowerPoint, create a custom slide (see dimensions in the banner template above) then add your content. Export as a PDF
    3. Or use the Online Design Tool provided on their website (see order link below). Your design will be saved to your eSigns account under My Projects.
