Interdisciplinary Forum - Information for Presenters

Guidelines for Posters

  • Your poster should use lettering and images that can be seen from a distance and organized in an easy-to-read manner.
  • Posters must fit within a 4' X 6' space on our poster kiosks. The standard and recommended poster size is 56" X 42".
  • Download our recommended poster template. Please note that using this template is not required.
  • Please note that our poster kiosks are metal rather than cork board material. They will require that posters are secured via magnets or binder clips (push pins will not work).
