Poster Presentations: New!
You can choose to submit a poster presentation as an alternative
to a traditional oral presentation. By adding poster presentations
to the conference, we can increase the number of participants.
Posters will be on display throughout the 2-day conference. We
encourage participants and audience to view and discuss the posters
with the authors during breaks on both days and after the afternoon
session on Saturday.
Poster Presentations require the submission of a title and abstract
(use the same form as the oral presentations and check the box
for “Poster Presentation”).
Guidelines for Poster Presentations
Posters should be 4 x 8 feet or smaller (landscape format).
Title should be 6" in height and up to 8' long at the top
of the poster. Main text should be double-spaced, 16-20 point
fonts. Electricity is not available.
We recommend designing the poster in Adobe Illustrator or similar
graphics software and saving the file in PDF format for printing.
FEDEX Kinko’s and other large copy shops provide color printing
for posters at reasonable prices. Your university, college, or
institution may provide this printing service. The Penn Museum
cannot provide printing or paper.
If you have questions, please contact the conference organizers.
