ASSC 17 Poster and Talk Criteria

POSTER COMPOSITION AND DIMENSIONS

Poster Composition: All posters should include the following: 1) A title in large type with author names and affiliations clearly printed below; 2) the abstract as originally submitted for review; 3) a brief introduction describing the nature and/or history of the problem under investigation; 4) a clear summary of results if the poster is presenting new scientific research; and 5) conclusions in the form of bullet points or a concise descriptive paragraph. Wherever possible, the use of figures and tables is strongly encouraged.

Poster Format: All posters should be printed in landscape format. 

Poster Size: The maximum dimensions for posters are 72 inches wide x 44 inches high (or 182.8 cm. wide x 110 cm. high).

 

TALK LENGTH, A/V PROVISIONS, AND MODE OF PRESENTATION

Concurrent Talk Length: The maximum time allotted for each talk is 20 minutes (including discussion). Speakers should aim to complete their talk in 15 minutes to allow 3-4 minutes for questions and speaker transition time.

On-Site A/V Equipment: High-definition video projectors will be available in every venue space allotted for talks. Though in most cases a house laptop will be available, we urge speakers to bring their own computers. Provisions for audio output will also be available. 

Mode of Presentation: Although virtually any presentation format would probably be acceptable, we would strongly recommend the most commonly available formats: Powerpoint and Keynote.
