WaterSmart Innovations 2017 Poster Session Guidelines

A poster session combines text and graphics to present information visually. Your poster should be configured in such a way as to quickly and efficiently communicate your subject matter. A poster session also allows the viewer to study your information at their own pace and discuss it with you one on one.

Please use the following guidelines:

  1. Poster size must not exceed 30" X 40". Poster can be displayed in either configuration (Portrait or Landscape).
  2. Please send your poster in PDF form. WSI staff will print, affix to a biodegradable foam-core board (30" X 40"), and setup your poster in an assigned position.
  3. Poster should be readable from a 3-5 foot distance. Please use appropriate fonts and line weights.
  4. Posters must be non-commercial in their content.
  5. Poster must contain your contact information.
  6. The viewer should be able to extract the main ideas of your work from the poster during the time it is unattended.
    1. Arrange information logically - top to bottom or right to left.
    2. Number items or use arrows to indicate order of viewing.
    3. Block and subtitle each part of your poster.
  7. A PDF version of your poster will be posted for access/download on the conference website.
