I WANT TO PRESENT.  WHAT SIZE SHOULD MY POSTER BE AND WHAT RESOURCES DO YOU PROVIDE?

All presenters will be provided with an easel and a 40 x 60" foam posterboard.  We highly encourage you to bring your own pins along with your poster.  We will only have a limited number of pins on hand during the event.  Unless you are an official Phase II Research Track student, you are responsible for producing and printing your own poster to bring to the event.

ARE THERE ANY PARTICULAR FORMATTING OR PRINT QUALITY GUIDELINES FOR THE POSTERS?

No.  Your poster will be mounted on a 40 x 60" foam posterboard, but you are free to create your scientific poster as elaborately or as simply as you like.  For additional guidance on creating a poster, feel free to check out these tips for creating a scientific poster developed for MSA students.
