Interactive Poster Abstract Authoring Tips

The following tips may help you prepare a successful Poster abstract:

•          State the contribution and originality of your work clearly and
explicitly: What is the problem? How does your approach help? Why is it
better than other available approaches?

•          Interactive posters abstracts may be chosen based on either the
significance of the problem or the originality of your approach.

•          Focus on the contribution of your work rather than the
background, including just enough background to make clear how your work
differs from significant prior research.

•          Include the major graphical elements that will likely be used in
the poster itself.

Printing and Displaying Your Poster

The space allocated for each poster is 48 inches by 48 inches. Posters are
recommended to be no longer or wider than 45 inches in either dimension;

Posters should be affixed to the poster boards with push pins, not tape.

indicating where your poster should be placed; please allow time to find
your board and set up your poster.
