An integral part of ISPPP are the
Poster Presentations. These
posters convey the latest breaking research and are extremely important. Participation
in the poster program is strongly encouraged by conference participants as it promotes scientific
dialog between researchers and many good ideas are generated from these sessions.
Guidelines / Instructions to Poster Presenters
We look forward to your participation in the ISPPP Symposium. Once you receive confirmation that your abstract has been accepted for poster presentation, it is important that you confirm your intent to present the poster by registering and paying the registration fee online. Authors presenting a poster must be in attendance at their poster boards during the hours listed in the scientific program. The schedule showing the day to present the poster will be listed in the scientific program. It should be noted that all papers are accepted based on the understanding that one or more of the authors will personally attend the conference as a conferee to present their work. In addition, by submitting the abstract you accept that the abstract will be emailed to meeting participants as part of the scientific program. If you submit several abstracts, and many of them are accepted for poster presentation, it is your responsibility to make sure that all of your posters are covered at the assigned Poster Session times. If you have more than two posters scheduled at the same time, please ask a co-author to help you or withdraw the extra posters. Note, if a co-author presents the poster, the co-author must also be registered as a conference attendee (not booth staff). Once the abstract is submitted online, you will receive an email confirmation that the abstract has been successfully received. If you do not receive a confirmation, then we did not receive your abstract.
- All posters will remain up for 2 days for viewing all day Wednesday and Thursday.
- All poster presentations should be put up on Wednesday, July 19, between 8:00AM and 10:40AM.
- Do not remove your poster until after the poster session ends on Thursday afternoon.
- Only take your poster down on Thursday at 4:10PM (be sure to remove the reprint envelope where people leave business cards to request reprints of your abstract – anything remaining will be discarded).
Poster Board Size
- Please prepare your poster size to the dimension 42 inches wide (107cm) by 42 inches high (107cm).
- The paper number will be located on an upper corner of the poster board, large enough to be seen 6 feet away.
- Reprint request envelopes will be located on a bottom corner of the poster board so you may receive business cards requesting reprints or details about the paper presented. Please be sure to remove the reprint envelope at the end of the day on Thursday, where people leave business cards to request reprints of your abstract.
- All material to be posted must be prepared in advance because supplies for this purpose will not be available at the site.
- Be sure to bring the supplies you will need to mount your poster, i.e., push pins, tape, scissors, etc.
- Do not use Velcro, and do not write on or mark the poster boards.
- A title banner should be prepared which is not more than 3.6 feet wide (110cm).
- Lettering should be at least 1" high. The banner should include the title, authors and address.
- The minimum size of each page should be at least 8 ½" x 11." Larger sizes may be used, but size consistency is encouraged.
- A minimum letter size of 14 point is recommended. Large point sizes should be used for headings. Please use block lettering and not script.
- For best visual effect, use simple to semi-complex figures that can be read easily (from 4 ft. away). Labels should use type at least 18 points high.
- Arrange poster sheets for logical flow from top to bottom, left to right. Number poster sheets in the order you wish them to be viewed. Consider using connecting lines (for example, colored tape) to guide the viewer. Block and subtitle several poster sheets devoted to a specific part of the work; e.g., apparatus, sample work-up, experimental details, etc.
- One page should be devoted to a concise, straightforward statement of the objective of the work, and should be placed at the beginning of the board. Other pages should demonstrate in some detail the work that was done and typical results. Excessive detail is not encouraged. One page should present the results and/or conclusions of the work, and should be placed at the end of the poster presentation.
