You will participate in a session with other researchers to discuss your work and receive feedback. Groups of approximately four to five abstract authors will work with experienced research mentors during a 60-minute interactive session.

Plan to prepare a short, 7-10 minute electronic presentation to be shared with your colleagues.  These will be followed by discussion and feedback from session mentors who have expertise in the group theme.  Feedback will be provided to the group as a whole, as well as to individual presenters.

Poster Presentation

You are asked to prepare a poster summarizing your work for presentation at the meeting.  You will be assigned an 8 feet long (horizontal) by 4 feet high (vertical). poster board on which to display your work. In most cases, posters do NOT need to fill the provided space. Excessively large posters are both expensive and cumbersome.  Posters will be on display beginning Sunday, January 19 at 3:00 PM through Tuesday afternoon, January 21 at 2:00 PM. Presenters are responsible for printing and bringing their posters.  Printing is available onsite at the cost of the presenter.  SSH will not print or ship posters. 

Professor Rounds Format

As an accepted abstract presenter, you are expected to participate in Professor Rounds which begin promptly at 4:45 PM. For your poster presentation, prepare a 3-5 minute oral overview of your work and be ready to answer any questions from both your assigned professors and audience members in attendance. 

We are using a team-based moderation process, with two professors assigned to most groups. The professors will meet at the first poster in your group at 4:45 PM and will progress to each poster. You are expected to join the group to hear about the other poster presenters and the professors’ comments. Your specific group assignment, professors and board number will be sent in the coming weeks. When planning your schedule, please plan to be there during the entire Professor Rounds session. 

Please note, this template discusses each section that should be included on your poster.  You are not developing a Powerpoint presentation. Use of this poster template is not required.

Tips for Preparing and Discussing Your Mounted Poster

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

  • The overall size of the final poster can be no more than 8 feet in width (horizontal) by 4 feet in height (vertical). Posters larger than this will not fit on the boards.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

You will participate in a session with other researchers to discuss your work and receive feedback. Groups of approximately seven to ten abstract authors will work with experienced research mentors during a 90-minute interactive session.

Plan to prepare a short, 7-10 minute electronic presentation to be shared with your colleagues.  These will be followed by discussion and feedback from session mentors who have expertise in the group theme.  Feedback will be provided to the group as a whole, as well as to individual presenters. You will be asked to develop next steps for your project as an outcome of the session.
