ONE easel will be allocated per poster, and will be numbered.
It is strongly recommended that your poster be prepared on a single sheet of mat board or foam core board approximately 32" x 40". Your poster, including graphs, legends, introductory and concluding material, will be viewed from a distance. To be legible, the smallest lettering should be at least 18 point font.

Your poster should be self-explanatory so that you are free to discuss and answer questions.
