Poster Display Information

The Poster Reception is scheduled for Thursday, February 27, from 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. Poster presenters are expected to be at their displays during this time.

Poster set-up will take place on Thursday, February 27, between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. The ACGME will provide pushpins to affix the poster to the display board.

Authors/presenters should bring their posters with them to the conference. Do not send posters to the ACGME offices or to the hotel.

Posters will be displayed on double-sided poster boards holding one (1) poster per side. The poster board surface is 6' wide by 4' high, with a two-inch border, so posters should be slightly smaller than the overall dimensions. All posters should be oriented in landscape format. Inclusion of charts, graphs, and images on posters for visual engagement is encouraged.

**All posters must be displayed by 2:00 p.m. on Thursday and removed by 12:00 p.m. on Saturday** 

The ACGME will not save or return-ship any posters remaining after 12:00 p.m. Saturday.
