Creating Your Poster

  • Dimensions of the Poster Board are 4’ (48”) high x 6’ (72”) wide.  All posters should be made to fit within these specifications.
  • Poster boards will have uncovered pinboard surfaces. Posters are to be attached via thumb tacks only. No permanent alterations can be made to the poster boards.
  • All information, including any illustrations, graphs or charts are to be displayed within the poster board’s 4’x6’ dimensions. Materials cannot be setup on the floor or leaned against the poster board in any way.
  • It is recommended to keep your information simple and concise. Avoid overly text-heavy write ups. Keep font sizes large to allow viewers to read your poster from multiple feet away.
  • Do not print materials for presentation on foam-core/board or other thick, heavy materials, as they will not be suitable for attachment to the poster board.

Presenting Your Poster

  • Presenters are able to hang their posters 15 minutes prior to the start of each session and are expected to present for no less than 1 hour of their assigned session time. It is recommended that presenters/and or co-authors be available for the duration of the session to answer any questions.
  • Considering bringing:
    • copies of your research to give to interested attendees
    • copies of your CV
    • business cards
    • links to your publications online, your research, your lab, or your website

If you need to make copies of materials, there is a UPS Store in the convention center located on the ground level of the building just off the main lobby.

Complimentary Poster Check, Sponsored by the American Psychological Association, will be available in the Exhibit Hall each day. Posters not retrieved by the end of each day will be discarded. Do not leave any personal belongings unattended in the Exhibit Hall/Poster Room. SPSP is not responsible for any items lost or damaged in this room.
