A detailed list of all posters is available in the PDF of the program.


Important instructions for poster presenters:

  • Posters should be prepared in portrait orientation (i.e. not landscape)


  • The dimensions of each poster should be:
      • 3 feet wide x 3.75 feet high  (=38×45 inch, 96×114 cm)


  • Posters should be mounted with pushpins that will be provided.


  • Each poster should be mounted on its poster board between 7:00 am and 8:00 am on the morning of the designated day of that poster to get maximum exposure.


  • Each poster should be removed from the poster board after the poster session but not later than 6:00 pm on the designated day of that poster. Any posters still mounted at 6:00 pm will be discarded.
