Instructions for Best Student Paper/Poster Symposium

 

Posters will be assigned to a symposium, if requested; otherwise posters will be grouped into contributed poster sessions.

Please use the following guidelines when developing your poster:

  • A poster consists of easily read text and graphics describing the objectives, methods, and findings of a fisheries-related project or study.
  • Posters are to be a maximum size of 4 ft H x 3 ft W (1.2 m × 0.9 m) – yes, portrait orientation is preferred this year!
  • Posters should be a single sheet of printable stock (if using paper, please consider lamination) that can be affixed to the poster display board.
  • Multiple-panel posters will not be accepted.

We also recommend that you follow the guidelines presented in a recent article about making posters: http://afs.confex.com/afs/Carline_Poster_guidelines-3.pdf
