  • Posters should be set up between 7:30 and 8:30am on Saturday April 29.
  • Posters should be removed before 10:30am on Sunday April 30.
  • Poster boards will be located on the upper and lower lobby of the Joseph Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School.

Do not place your poster in an alternate location.


Poster preparation

  • All posters should be 3 feet high by 4 feet wide.
  • All posters must be displayed on the display board provided. All material must be removable. You may not write, paint, or paste on the display board.
  • The poster should be a visual presentation of your submitted abstract. The title should reflect the content of your poster and match your abstract submission. Contact information should include the name, organization, and email address of the corresponding author, as well as the affiliations of all co-authors.
  • Prepare diagrams or charts legibly in a size sufficient to be read at a distance of 2 meters.
  • Present results graphically if possible, and use pictures, symbols, and color to visually organize your ideas.
  • Include the background of your research followed by results and conclusions. A successful poster presentation depends on how well you convey information to an interested audience.
  • We encourage you to avoid laminating your poster to ensure that it can be recycled.
