Information For Accepted Abstracts

Congratulations on getting your abstract accepted for the 31st Annual Symposium of The Protein Society! We hope that you will enjoy presenting your work and discussing it with other Symposium attendees. In order to effectively communicate the results of your research, please read carefully and follow the guidelines below that have been developed to ensure that posters are similar in size and format and to assist attendees in accessing the material:

  • The dimensions of your poster must not exceed 94 cm in width x 127 cm in height (3’wide x 4’high feet).
  • Make typeface large enough to be read comfortably by interested attendees from distances of 4 - 5 feet (1.5 m).
  • It is recommended that the poster include a brief abstract, background and/or objectives, methods, results and conclusions. The abstract should contain a brief overview of the project as a whole.
  • Make all illustrations in advance of the Symposium. Matte finish on micrographs and other photographic reproductions provides better visibility due to reduction of glare from lights.
  • It is useful to display a copy of your abstract. This provides a “take-away” resource and is very popular with Symposium attendees. Please make sure you provide your contact details on the handout, including your name and email.
  • Velcro will be provided to attach your poster to the poster board. Pushpins and thumbtacks are not allowed.
