Posters will be displayed on boards, which will be provided along with pushpins or tape for mounting. Posters must fit within the dimensions of the board (0.90 m wide x 1.20 m long). Presenters will be assigned locations to put up their posters, which will be organized by topic. Supplies and poster location assignments will be available at the registration desk. Some of our poster panels can only take tape for mounting the posters, so please make sure your poster is printed on paper (not plastic or fabric).

We strongly encourage presenters to prepare their posters in English, but posters in Spanish and Portuguese will also be accepted. If possible, the title and abstract should be written in two languages: English and Portuguese or English and Spanish. Should you have space limitations to do this, please print the translated title and abstract in a regular page to make it available for people that might be interested.
