Poster Presentations

The poster session will be held in the Great Room located in Andrews Hall on Saturday, April 10, 2010.

When you arrive at the conference on the morning of the poster presentation, go to the registration table. There you will be able to pick up your badges, programs, and information sheets telling you exactly where to set up your poster.

All posters must be stand-alone; they should be sturdy enough to stand on a table. No wall space will be available for hanging flat posters.

Your poster should be no more than 3' wide and 3' in height. All materials that you use must fit into a 3’X3’ table top area. At least one presenter should remain with each poster at all times. If you are the only presenter, then you will need to try to stay will your poster as much as possible. There will be slow periods during which you can walk around and view the other posters, take a brief break, etc.

A copy of your abstract (as submitted with your original proposal) will appear in the conference program. If you wish to make any changes or alterations to that abstract, the program editor, Philip Lemaster, must receive a correct copy electronically (email: pcl001@marietta.edu) no later than Friday, March 26, 2010.

It is often a good idea to prepare brief handouts showing your name, school, faculty sponsor, and a brief description of your project; you should have copies of this handout to give to people who show an interest in your poster. This is a good way to connect with faculty from other schools and to let other professionals in psychology know who you are.
