The following guidelines will ensure that your work is presented in the most rewarding and effective manner.
Your poster should be a stand-alone, self-explanatory display, allowing viewers to read on their own while you address individual questions. Every board should lend itself to presenting information in a self-explanatory format. The time spent at a poster is determined by the viewer; an effective poster will have a good balance of easy-to-see figures, graphics, and text.
- Length - A single 16:9 PowerPoint Presentation Slide in PDF format.
- Font - Suggest Times New Roman, Calibri or Arial.
- Minimum Font Size - 10
- Review the Electronic Poster Guidelines for assistance with formatting.
- Heading - A heading for the top of the poster should be prepared indicating: (1) title, the same as that of the abstract submitted, (2) author(s), and (3) institutional affiliation of the author(s).
- Content - An abstract of your research should be included in the upper left corner of the poster board.
- Graphics - Graphic material, tables and illustrations should be as simple as possible. Numbers or arrows to indicate the viewing sequence are of great assistance to viewers. Photos should have a matte finish.
- Commercialism - Posters must avoid commercialism, promotion, or advertisement. Posters that are deemed to be commercial, promotional or an advertisement will removed from the website.
- Level of Evidence - Presenters are required to disclose levels of evidence for any cited references integral to their talk (see template below).
NEW THIS YEAR, presenters will need to audio record a 5 minute explanation of their research. This recording will be completed after uploading the e-poster to the Conference Harvester. Please allow an estimated 3 minute delay after uploading the e-poster to have access to record your audio. The instructions are outlined when logged in. Note, the ability to re-record the poster multiple times is available.
The abstract you submitted will be published in PM&R and will be distributed to all AAPM&R subscribers as well as all attendees of the Annual Assembly. A supplement of PM&R will be released electronically a few weeks prior to the Annual Assembly and will feature all abstracts. Abstracts will be copy-edited to conform with PM&R style and usage.
Embargo Policy: While abstracts will be released to PM&R subscribers, Annual Assembly attendees, and members of the media prior to the Annual Assembly, abstract content and any updated research cannot be promoted or reported until Thursday, November 12, 2020 after 8 am. We encourage all presenters to submit their completed papers to PM&R for publication consideration.
