The ever-lively poster session will be hosted with an appetizer reception in the Student Union Jordan Ballroom A/B/C 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Presenting a Poster?

Presenters need to stand by their poster(s) during the entire poster session. Presenters are responsible for the setup and take down of their poster.  Setup may occur immediately preceding the poster session and presenters should take down their poster immediately following the conclusion of the poster session.  Posters that are not removed will be discarded.  Adhesive Velcro will be provided to set up your poster.

The maximum size of the poster should be: 46’’ x 46’’, but smaller posters are recommended (for instance, 46’’ wide by 34.5’’ high if your preference is landscape or reverse if your preference is portrait).   Note: Poster size can be manipulated in Page Setup of PowerPoint.

If this is your first poster presentation, we recommend that you utilize resources on best practices for poster creation.  Here is one useful website: Note: If you use the poster template from this website, it is set up for 48’’ (wide) by 36’’ (high), please adjust these dimensions for your HBES poster.
