Instructions to Poster Presenters

We look forward to your contribution to HPLC 2018 Washington, DC! Kindly note that the, presenting author must pre-register online as a conferee and pay the registration fee in order to present the poster during the conference. The abstract title will be announced in the online scientific program.

Authors presenting a poster must be in attendance at their poster boards during the hours listed in the scientific program. If you submit several poster abstracts, and many of them are accepted, it is your responsibility to make sure that all your poster abstracts are covered at the assigned times. No one author may present more than two posters at one time. If you have two or more posters to present at the same time, please ask a co-author to present or withdraw the extra posters. Please contact us if a co-author will present the poster noting the co-author must be registered as a conference attendee (not booth staff).

Poster Board Size

  • The size of each poster board is 42 inches wide (107cm) by 42 inches high (107cm). When preparing the poster, be sure to subtract a 1-inch (2.5cm) border to leave room for the poster to properly fit on the poster board. Please note that the poster boards may be somewhat smaller than in past years.
  • You will identify your poster board by the poster number that will be located on an upper corner of the poster board
  • Reprint request envelopes will be located on a bottom corner of the poster board so you may receive business cards requesting reprints or details about the paper presented. Please be sure to remove business cards from the reprint envelope at the end of each day.
  • All material to be posted must be prepared in advance because supplies for this purpose will not be available at the site.
  • Be sure to bring the supplies you will need to mount your poster, i.e., push pins, tape, scissors, etc.
  • Do not use Velcro, and do not write on or mark the poster boards.

Poster Preparation

  • A title banner should be prepared which is not more than 42 inches wide (107cm).
  • Lettering should be at least 1" high. The banner should include the title, authors and address.
  • The minimum size of each page should be at least 8 ½" x 11." Larger sizes may be used, but size consistency is encouraged.
  • A minimum letter size of 14 point is recommended. Large point sizes should be used for headings. Please use block lettering and not script.
  • For best visual effect, use simple to semi-complex figures that can be read easily (from 4 ft. away). Labels should use type at least 18 points high.
  • After the title banner, include a concise, straightforward statement of the objective of the work, followed by other information to demonstrate in some detail the work that was done and typical results. Eccesive detail is not encouraged. At the end of the poster, state the results and/or conclusions of the work.
  • Arrange poster information for logical flow from top to bottom, left to right. If the poster contains more than one page, number the poster pages in the order you wish them to be viewed. Consider using connecting lines (for example, colored tape) to guide the viewer. Block and subtitle several poster sheets devoted to a specific part of the work; e.g., apparatus, sample work-up, experimental details, etc.
