BALTIMORE, MD USA
SUBMITTING POSTER ABSTRACTS AND ONE-PAGE POSTER SUMMARY
Please email final abstracts to Scott.Rogerson@noaa.gov by 3 October, and indicate what size your poster will be (e.g., 4’ by 4’, 6’ by 4’, or 8’ by 4’). We also request that a one-page poster summary be created for inclusion in a Poster Session Preview during the conference proceedings. Please title this slide “yourlastname_poster_summary.ext” (PPT preferred, PDF also acceptable). Please email these to Scott.Rogerson@noaa.gov by 17 October.
Posters will be available for viewing each afternoon of the Conference, at the Pier 5 Hotel (venue for afternoon sessions). Please plan to pin up your poster as early as Tuesday afternoon and no later than early on Wednesday afternoon. Poster introductions will be given on Wednesday afternoon. Please plan to be present at the formal poster viewing immediately following the introduction. All posters must be removed by 3 PM on Thursday.
POSTER DISPLAY PANELS, MOUNTING AND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT/CONFIGURATION
Each poster must be constructed to not exceed 8’ (wide) by 4’ (tall), with 4’ by 4’ preferred. Posters will be mounted to a double-sided panel that is 8’ wide by 4’ tall, such that one large (up to 8’x4’) or two smaller (4’x4’) posters can be displayed on each side of the panel. These panels have a horizontal orientation. The top edge of the panel is approximately seven feet above the floor. The bottom edge is about three feet above the floor. Your poster will be displayed with conference- supplied pushpins. Final guidance, including assignment information, will be emailed by 13 November and will also be available at the registration table.
Please email an electronic version of your poster to Scott.Rogerson@noaa.gov so that PDF files can be created for the post-conference website. Deadline for this electronic version is 21 November.
SOME POINTERS FOR POSTER PRESENTATIONS
Place the title at the top center of the poster. Use 72 point letters. Avoid hand drawn materials. Keep it simple. Make sure it has a logical flow. Use color, graphics, charts, and photos. Key points should be in large type. Do not try to tell the entire story on the panel. Save some key points for one-on-one discussion.
Note: Some additional helpful poster design information is available at
