Poster Presentation Guidelines

The presenting author must be at the poster board during the designated presentation times. One or two authors should be in attendance during the presentation time as all posters will have reviewers assigned to visit and discuss your work. Size
    • Your poster must be no larger than 4 feet high by 4 feet wide. Two posters will be presented side-by-side on each board.
    • A poster addresses one central question. State the question or hypothesis clearly in the poster and use your presentation to provide a clear and explicit take-home message. Posters usually have a similar structure to a research paper or journal article, which include the following sections: an abstract, introduction (i.e. brief rationale or review of relevant research), methods, results, and a conclusion or summary. If your poster is more clinically oriented, you may elect to use a different format, but breaking things down into clear sections with headings will help your colleagues understand your poster easily and quickly.In the busy and crowded environment of a poster session, most people do not have the ability to read and process long sections of text. Therefore, keep text to the bare essentials and stick to the most important ideas. You can convey details via discussion when you are presenting your poster.
    • Do not exceed the 4 feet x 4 feet poster dimensions. Be considerate of other presenters.
    • Use bullet points to simplify sections like the introduction and conclusions.
    • Use large type, such as 36-point type for section headings, and 24-point type for text. Never use type smaller than 18 point for any reason.
    • Make effective use of underlines and bold.
    • Use graphs and figures whenever possible.
    • Make your poster visually pleasing and attractive.
    • Include your poster number in a large type on your poster so attendees can easily locate your abstract.

Travel and Best Poster Awards

The Annual Meeting offers Travel Awards to select top-scoring abstract submitters who checked the box on the abstract submission form. Those award notifications will be sent early March. There will be a small number of top-scoring abstracts selected for oral presentation on Saturday, April 22. Those selected must be available to present their work. Best Poster Awards will be awarded in the amount of $1,000 each. Members of the ASCI and AAP (including members of each Council) will judge posters on scientific novelty, quality and clarity of presentation. Awards will be presented on Saturday afternoon during Plenary III. Congratulations to the 2016 Outstanding Poster Award recipients:
