SUBMITTING YOUR ABSTRACT
INSTRUCTIONS FOR POSTER PRESENTATIONS (in-person)
Each poster will be given a number and allotted a space 3′ high x 3′ wide (or 91 cm x 91 cm) (Portrait). The spaces will be numbered ahead of time so that you will know where to place your poster. Pushpins will be provided for mounting the poster.
Indicate the title, and name(s) of author(s) at the top of your poster so that it may be identified easily; the lettering for this heading should be at least 1″ (30.5 cm or 72 points) high.
As a general guideline, text and illustrations should be comfortably read from a distance of 3 to 4 feet (or 1 m), so make them large enough to be seen clearly. Charts, drawings, photographs and illustrations might well be similar to those used in making slides and more heavily drawn. Simple use of color can effectively add emphasis. Your poster should be printed on lightweight materials that could be supported by pushpins. Hand-lettered material is generally unsuitable for professional and effective poster presentation. Typed material should use the largest font possible, but at least 30 points in size. Illustrated materials should be kept simple. It also might be useful to have small copies of the poster for handouts.
VIRTUAL POSTER PRESENTATION INSTRUCTIONS
Virtual poster presenters will need to email Billy Crow (firstname.lastname@example.org) a poster (42x60 and 600dpi) in jpeg format and a < 5 minute high-quality digital audio recording (mp4 format) discussing the poster before September 1st.
These individual, pre-recorded presentations will be turned into a video presentation montage to be played during the in-person poster session. Each poster will come up on the screen for 5 minutes and the audio narration will play, then the video will move to the next poster. The video will play on a continuous loop during the wine and cheese poster session.
The posters will also be made available for viewing on the SON website (no audio) to those who register for the meeting face to face or virtually.
The Traditional Competition will be limited to 12 students. If more than 12 students sign up, the abstracts will be used to select the 12 students.
The abstracts will be judged on quality of writing and science. Students who are not able to be in the Traditional Competition will be given a
choice to present in the Three Minute Thesis Competition or in a regular session.
