UNDERGRADUATE POSTER PRESENTATIONS

AT THE WPSA 2017 MEETING

Students will be available at their poster or display during their assigned session time (Friday, April 14, 2017, 1:15 – 3:00 pm in a place to be assigned in the Hyatt Regency Hotel next to the registration desk) to discuss their research with conference participants. It is recommended that students prepare and practice a 3-5 minute summary about their project.

POSTER GUIDELINES

Dimensions of Posters:
Maximum size of poster should not exceed 48 x 36 inches to fit on TRI-FOLD 48 X 36” poster board on an easel. The tri-fold is 12”, 24” and 12”.

Mounting:
Pushpins will be provided for affixing all poster materials to display boards. Mounting on foamcore is NOT recommended; if you have such a poster, you will need extra long pins (greater than 1 inch) to affix your poster.

NOTE: You may prepare a tri-fold cardboard poster if you are specifically directed to do so by your advisor.

Printing of Posters: Posters can be printed at your home university and transported to the conference; or, you should look into identifying a Kinko’s in or near the hotel to print your poster once you arrive. Your home university may give you access to inexpensive poster-printing facilities and suggest you investigate this printing option. If you decide to print at the conference, we recommend that you check the costs of this kind of printing because they can be expensive at commercial outlets.

Poster Design: Consider talking with your university media center or faculty advisor about techniques for poster design.
