All presentations are done on Sunday, April 28 between 1300-1400. Presenters must be available at their poster to present their poster content. However, ORNAC encourages poster presenters to display their posters for the duration of exhibit hall hours on both exhibition dates.

Poster Board Guidelines:

Poster Dimensions:

Poster size may not exceed 3 feet 7 inches [109 cm] across and 3 feet, 6 inches [107 cm] high.

Each board will be numbered on the upper left corner. Be sure you place your presentation on the board number for which you have been assigned. If you do not know your poster assignment number, please refer to your confirmation email, the Conference App or Website. Note that you will be sharing a poster board with another presenter; there will be two posters displayed per board.

Pushpins will be available to mount your poster. Handouts are encouraged as is a mechanism (envelope) for collecting contact information of participants wishing to receive more information on your poster. Envelopes will NOT be available and you may not encroach on your boardmate's space with your supplemental materials.

NOTE: There will NOT be a table underneath the poster board.

Poster Board Design:

  • Title Banner: Lettering should be at least 3/4 [1.9 cm] to 1 inch [2.5 cm] high (72 pt. bold). The banner should include the author(s) and affiliation(s).
  • Font: Use a sans serif font such as arial or helvetica in a minimum size of 24 pt. (1/4 inch high). Text, figures and photographs should be readable from a distance of 4 feet.
  • Bullets and Numbering: Be simple and direct in your poster presentation. Use short phrases and "bulleted" text throughout the poster. Avoid long narrative paragraphs.
Poster Board Layout:

Arrange the poster for logical flow top left to lower right. The panels may be numbered in the order they should be viewed or you may use chart pak colored tape to guide the viewer.

Poster Board Content:

The poster should include the following elements:

  • Overview: A succinct summary of the purpose, methods, and results. Use phrases rather than sentences in a simple outline format.
  • Introduction: A concise statement of the objective and background of the work.
  • Methods: Describe the apparatus, chemistry, samples, and materials used in detail.
  • Results: Use graphs, spectra, charts, and pictures with a minimum of text to illustrate results.
