NHCA POSTER PREPARATION TIPS

These tips will help you prepare an attractive poster to communicate your ideas effectively.

POSTER SIZE:

Posters should be formatted to a 36" x 48" PDF or EPS file and submitted to the NHCA websire no later than January 15, 2016. (Click Here to Submit)
     

ORGANIZATION OF CONTENT:

A poster should be able to “stand alone” - that is, to be understandable even when the author is not available to explain, discuss, and answer questions.  To meet the “stand alone” criteria, authors should consider which of the following potential elements might apply to the poster’s particular topic:
1. Objective, purpose, or goal
2. Background information, prior work, relevant literature, assumptions
3. Experimental design, block diagram, sketch, photos
4. Outline of the project, educational program, sound survey, etc.
5. Results: data, graphs, tables, etc.
6. Conclusions and recommendations or implications
NOTE: Meeting attendees will be able to ask questions of the author via the question box placed near each poster.  The author will then be able to follow back up with questions by an email or phone call.

 

TOP TITLE LINE AND FONT FOR POSTER TEXT:

 Plan for a top line identifying the poster title in large legible font.  All fonts should be legible from a distance of 3 feet.

 

PHOTOS & GRAPHS:

Captions are essential for viewers.

SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIALS:

Audio recordings with headphones, actual examples of materials used in your project, etc. can be displayed.  You will need to let the NHCA office know if you will require a small table to display any material accompanying your poster. NHCA will strive to accommodate any special requests, but cannot confirm availability.

 

WRITTEN VERSION FOR HANDOUTS:

You may have handouts available for attendees to pick up.  It is recommended to have at least 100 copies.  The abstract that you originally submitted will be the copy used in the Spectrum Supplement.

 

POSTER PRINTING INFORMATION:

In order to make displaying posters easy and to ensure uniform quality, the NHCA is taking care of all the professional printing. Each presenter will be charged a fee of $65 for poster printing plus shipping & comment cards and box.  You are required to submit your fee along with a 36" x 48" PDF or ESP file to the NHCA office, nhcaoffice@hearingconservation.org no later than January 15, 2016.
