Detailed Instructions for Poster Presentations
Dear Poster Presenter/Author,
The instructions on this page will supplement the
general presentation instructions for all presentations.
- Define your acronyms. You may include a slide with an acronym list if you
like or you may embed them in your poster text. MAPLD has a diverse
audience and may not be familiar with TLAs that you use every day.
- Your poster should be set up no later then Tuesday

- There will be a dedicated time set aside for posters.
At least one of the authors is required to man the poster during this time.

board that is 7 feet high and 4 feet wide. For an effective presentation, it is
recommended that the lower two feet as well as the upper foot be considered keep out
zones. However, the entire surface will be made available for you to use.
- Your poster will be held up with Velcro fasteners
(provided by MAPLD) that are affixed to the back of your presentation.

please be sure to use good quality paper. We have had good luck with

frequently wrinkles and creases and lacks a professional look; actually it
If you have any questions about these instructions, please do not hesitate to

We look forward to working with each of you this year in creating effective presentations
and a successful conference.
