Students presenting in poster sessions should bring a research poster to use in sharing their work. Poster presentations should provide an overview of the work conducted, the methods and/or materials used in pursuit of project goals, the outcomes, and contributions to the field. Students presenting posters should expect to stay by their poster throughout their assigned session, have a 3-5 minute summary (elevator pitch) for visitors, using their poster as a visual guide, and be prepared to answer questions.
Size requirements: Posters can be printed in either landscape or portrait format but should not exceed total overall dimensions of 40" × 40" (H × W).
Considerations: Your poster should not be free-standing. Poster boards and tacks will be provided. Given delays in shipping and mail you should plan to bring your poster as you travel to Blacksburg for the conference.
Arrive Early: Poster presenters will be assigned to a specific poster location during one poster session. Presenters should arrive at least 15 minutes early to set up their poster before the session begins.
