Tips for Preparing and Discussing Your Mounted, Printed Poster

The following are some tips for designing your mounted, printed poster.  These tips are meant to serve as guidelines.  Your institution may also have some suggested best practices in poster design as well.

POSTER SIZE

The overall size of the final poster can be no more than 4 ft in width by 4 ft in height (1.22 m x 1.22 m).  Posters larger than this will not fit on the boards. 

NOTE:  We are extremely limited for space at this year's conference! To accommodate our tight quarters, we are displaying two posters per side of each 4 ft x 8 ft poster board. 

If using PowerPoint to prepare your poster, the final poster size can be set by opening the slide, clicking on the design tab, then clicking on page setup in the task bar.  Both width and height should then be set to less than 48 inches, though the exact proportion is up to you.

POSTER PRINTING

The Society is not offering a poster printing service this year.It has been under-utilized in the past, and we have found a bit over-priced for many presenters.Please make arrangements to have your poster printed on your own.

POSTER TEXT

Keep the poster text to a minimum, using short phrases and bullets to share information instead of lengthy paragraphs.

Use larger fonts (35-40 point or larger) to enhance readability.  Calibri, Arial, and Times New Roman are good fonts to use.

POSTER ID

Please include your

assigned poster ID# and the poster submission category (Research, Program Innovation, Technology Innovation) in the top left corner.

Include first names in the author list to encourage discussion.

Use headings for each section. Most research posters will include at least the following headings:

Introduction (problem studied, background information with key references, knowledge gap)

Purpose (succinct statement of the purpose of the study)

Materials and Methods (describe your study methods, sample, simulation equipment used)

Results (use graphs and tables to highlight your data)

Discussion (synthesis of the work, comparison of the results with current literature)

Conclusion (what is the value to practice, education, sim community)

Information should flow top to bottom and left to right.

Use color to accent your poster, but be careful not to let it be distracting.

Make sure all graphs and pictures have a legend that describes them.

Describe the work you have done to interested individuals in a succinct manner using different words (do not read your poster).

Prepare a 5 minute talk that briefly reviews the highlight of your work and complements the information that is on your poster. 

Consider preparing a handout with talking points if attendees have additional questions.

Bring business cards so if anyone would like more information they can easily contact you later.

Tips for Preparing and Presenting Your Oral Presentation for Professor Rounds

DEADLINE for Oral Presentation File Upload:

FRIDAY, JANUARY 27, 2017

You will be given a set of 5 pre-designed Powerpoint slides with which to present your information during Professor Rounds.

Template for Completed Study Oral Presentation

Please include your assigned poster ID# and the poster’s submission category (Research, Program Innovation, Technology Innovation) in the top left corner.

Include first names in the author list to encourage discussion.

The slide templates include both headings and suggested font sizes. Do not overcrowd your slides with too much information and too small a font-you want the audience to be able to read what is on the slide.

Select the most critical information to put on the slides and the information that will tell the audience the most about your study.

Do not read your slides during the presentation. Use this opportunity to add verbal information to the presentation so the audience gains information.

Plan on no more than 1-2 minutes per slide to ensure you stay within the 10 minute time frame.  If possible, leave a few extra minutes for questions.

If using graphics keep them simple so the audience can understand them.  Pay close attention to the use of color so that it is not distracting.

Dynamic visual elements may be embedded within the slides, provided that they convey useful information and do not cause the presentation to go over its allotted time.

Do a practice run with friends or colleagues.

Please note that your most current Oral Presentation slides MUST be uploaded to the IMSH presentation system no later than Monday, January 23rd. 

We encourage you to also bring your Oral Presentation on a flash drive as a back-up for your presentation.

A link will be emailed to you with upload instructions. 

ePosters

Abstracts of Works-in-Progress accepted to IMSH will be displayed as an ePoster.


DEADLINE for ePoster Upload:

MONDAY, JANUARY 23, 2017 

IMPORTANT!  UPLOAD VIA THE GOOGLE DRIVE INVITATION YOU RECEIVED FROM CHRIS ROGERS on Friday, January 13.

Email Chris for assistance with your file upload.

If you did not receive this invitation, please notify Kathy Adams at once.

The ePoster will consist of three PowerPoint slides.  These same three slides will be used for Oral Presentation in Professor Rounds for Work-in-Progress.  Please use this template for your ePoster/Oral presentation:
