You will be assigned to either present on Saturday, January 14, 2017 or Sunday, January 15, 2017. Please set up your poster before 9:00 AM. It is disruptive to mount posters after the conference begins at 9:00 AM so we encourage you to arrive early (8:00 AM). The following are suggestions (not requirements) to help you design you poster for maximum impact:
- The presentation must cover the material as cited in the abstract but additional material (e.g. new findings and ideas) can be included.
- Place the title of your paper and your paper number prominently at the top of the poster board to allow viewers to identify your paper
- Highlight the authors’ names and contact information in case the viewer is interested in more information
Prepare diagrams or charts legibly in a size sufficient to be read at a distance of 1 meters.
- Consider paragraph and figure captions should be at least in a 24-point font (0.9 cm height) and headers at least in a 36-point font (1.2 cm height).
- When working with graphs or charts, you might use different colors and textures/symbols for each line or bar. A serif font (e.g., Times) is often easier for reading main text, and a non-serif font (e.g., Arial or Helvetica) is legible for headers and figure labels
- Organize the presentation so it is clear, orderly, and self-explanatory
- You can consider using squares, rectangles, circles, etc., to group similar ideas. Avoid cluttering your poster with too much text. Label different elements as I, II, III; or 1, 2, 3; or A, B, C, making it easier for a viewer to follow your display
- Include the background of your research followed by results and “take away” conclusions.
- You can expect a sophisticated and diverse audience at NYC Neuromodulation. A successful poster presentation depends on how well you convey information to an interested audience. What questions are you addressing? What is novel about your effort?
