Tips for Poster Presenters

  • Text and illustrations must be readable from distances of at least 1 meter. Use lightweight materials only; heavy articles are difficult to secure.
  • Disclosures must never include the use of a trade name or a product-group message and must be listed once at the bottom of the poster.
  • Make the title dynamic and conclusive, rather than descriptive.
  • Avoid beginning sentences with numerals.
  • Standard abbreviations may be used without definition. Nonstandard abbreviations should be placed in parentheses after the first use of the word or phrase abbreviated.
  • No identifying information about patients participating in a study or trial should be used.
  • All abbreviations must be defined before being used as an abbreviation in the text.
  • Proofread poster abstracts carefully to avoid errors before submission. No corrections will be allowed or made once the poster abstract has been submitted.
  • QR codes are permitted.
