Technical Presentation Preparation

Poster Preparation

There is no official template for posters – only requirement is that it fit onto half of a 4’x8’ board (i.e., each person has a 4’ x 4’ space) – the poster is recommended to be a bit smaller than this so that it fits nicely. The boards are two-sides so each one will accommodate four posters.
