POSTER PRESENTATION GUIDELINES
POSTER PRESENTATION SETUP: More information coming soon!
POSTER VIEWING ROUND: Monday, October 23, 2023 from 1700 – 1830
All presenters must remain with their poster while on display on Monday, October 23 from 1700-1830
Please note that there is no oral presentation associated with the Poster Viewing Round.
To help you prepare effective visuals for your poster presentation, the Histiocyte Society provides the following guidelines:
Poster Viewing Round (Monday, October 23, 2023)
Authors must be present in front of their poster for the entire Poster Viewing Round to answer questions and give further information about their work. ALL poster authors are asked to submit a PDF of their poster to email@example.com no later than Wednesday, September 20, 2023.
For Virtual Attendees
If you will be attending the meeting virtually and you have a poster, we require a PDF of the poster as mentioned above as well as a short video presentation of your poster (5 minutes or less) which will be uploaded to the virtual platform. Don't miss this opportunity to share your work with your peers. Videos can be uploaded to our Box folder via the button below:
Poster Presentation Exhibit Panels
Each presentation will be allocated one exhibit panel measuring 1 meter wide x 1.5 meters tall (Approx 3.3” wide x 5” tall), to be provided at the meeting. Pins and/or Velcro will be provided. Therefore all posters must be vertical in orientation.
General Poster Appearance
Authors should prepare their poster for presentation beforehand and bring it with them to the meeting. Each presentation must be one (1) single poster that can be easily mounted at each of its four corners. The poster may include pictures, graphs, tables, captions, headlines, etc. Experience has shown that use of color in the poster presentations makes effective visual communications. Therefore, whenever possible, please use color photographs or graphs, and/or colored displays.
Pictures and Graphs
All pictures, graphs, and charts are suggested to be at least 8 inches (20.3 cm) x 10 inches (25.4 cm) in size. Present one idea per picture or graph, and include only important supporting information. Use drawings to illustrate non-visible entities in assembled objects, sequences of operation, relationships, and abstract ideas. Please use minimum words to convey your message.
All posters lettering should be laser printed, typewritten, typeset, or have draftsman-quality hand lettering. The approximate sizes or lettering should be as follows:
· Title and author’s name → 1 ½ inches (28 mm),
· Author’s affiliation and heading → ¾ inch (19 mm),
· Text → 5/16 inch (8 mm) [please keep text to a minimum],
· Captions for photographs or graphs → ¼ inch (6.4 mm), and
· Lettering of graphs → 3/16 inch (4.7 mm).
Experience has shown that lettering of the sizes noted permits the posters to be readable from a distance of 5 to 6 feet (1.5 to 1.8 m), the distance that most observers stand from a poster panel.
Those who wish to bring handout literature or want to place equipment or artifacts on the display with their posters, should bring these materials with them.
Setting Up and Taking Down Your Poster Presentation
All presentations must be in place on their designated board by 1200 on Monday, October 23, 2023.
Posters must be removed by 1300 on Tuesday, October 24, 2023.
Any posters or materials remaining after that time will be discarded.
