Instructions for Poster Presenters
A poster session comprises simultaneous information presentations by several investigators. The presenters remain in a fixed location for the specified time period and discuss their research personally with any interested individual, using graphs, diagrams, photographs, etc. (affixed to a poster board) to illustrate and communicate their findings.
The poster board area is 45 1/2 x 44 3/4 inches (landscape orientation), so you can design your poster to be 42x42 inches. Please note, two poster presentations will be displayed per board. Therefore, it is critical to adhere to size parameters. We will provide a printed “number” identifying each station.
All presenters are required to include statement disclosing any conflict of interest related to your abstract. This should be visible on your poster or poster board.
All illustrations should be made up beforehand. Remember that your illustrations must be read from distances of about 3-5 feet or more. Charts, drawings, and illustrations should be similar to those you would use in making slides, but more heavily drawn. Do not mount them on heavy board because they may be difficult to keep in position on the poster boards. Hand-lettered material should contain heavy lettering approximately 1” high for minor titles (i.e. questions, methods, conclusions, etc.) and all printing should be a minimum of ½”. Do not use normal “typewriter-size type. Keep illustrations and written material simple. One or two authors should be in attendance at each poster during the presentation time. Do not allow yourself to be monopolized for an inordinate period of time by a single individual.
Avoid the hassle of having to bring your poster with you. Arrange to have it produced, shipped, and pick it up at the meeting. Call4Posters™ is the preferred poster printing partner for the ASHI 42nd Annual Meeting. Unlike general printing services, Call4Posters™ was designed specifically to meet the needs of researchers. With Call4Posters™, your poster will be printed and delivered directly to the poster hall at this year's meeting. To access the ASHI Call4Posters™ site, click here
