poster session guidelines

Above is a photo from the 2021 Annual Meeting Poster Session during which a researcher is presenting her work to an attendee.

The poster sessions are opportunities to share your stories, your work, and your passions. There will be two poster sessions; half the participants will display posters on Sunday evening, and the other half on Tuesday evening. Participants displaying posters are encouraged to stay close to your posters to answer questions; those not displaying posters should peruse the posters on display and engage the presenters in conversation.

Each YGL should prepare a 30×40-inch poster highlighting your story and your work. They can be as simple or as detailed as you like. Your name and the poster title should appear prominently on the poster. The posters will be affixed to foam boards and placed on easels.

Posters may be formatted in landscape or portrait orientation. If you have a PowerPoint presentation you typically use, you can usually fit six slides on a 30×40-inch poster. 

You may either print your poster in advance of the conference and bring it with you, or you may send your formatted poster, in pdf format, to by June 20, 2022 and we will print it for you.
