Pre-Conference Uploads for Mobile App and Online Planner for ALL In-Person Posters

All in-person posters must upload a PDF (can be actual poster PDF or a long abstract). In addition, a short video (optional) can also be uploaded. We strongly encourage all poster presenters to upload the optional short video (mp4.) The submitting author for your poster will receive an email in early October with instructions and upload links. Deadline for upload will be October 27.

In-Poster Size and Institutional Logos

Each poster space is 7 ft 10 inches wide (239 cm) and 3 feet 10 inches high (117 cm). Each board is numbered in the upper left corner. Scroll down on this page for additional information about size, space, and board set-up.

Institutional logos are restricted to one logo per institution. When authors are from multiple institutions, this means there may be one logo per each institution. 

In-Person Poster Codes and Number

Posters are assigned by day. Find your assignment in the online planner, available mid-September, or mobile app (MP=Monday poster, TP=Tuesday poster, WP=Wednesday poster, ThP=Thursday poster). Example, MP 301 = Monday Poster, board space 301.

The Basics - how big is poster board and what is the set-up like?

At the ASMS annual conference, each poster presentation is provided one poster board. The usable space on each 'poster board' is 7 feet 10 inches across (239 cm) and 3 feet 10 inches high (117 cm). Each poster board will be numbered on the upper left corner.

There will be a table under each poster board. This table will be used/shared by two posters (the front and back of each poster board.) Approximately 8 inches of table space will provide a ledge under your poster. Poster boards are push-pin and Velcro compatible. 

ASMS provides push-pins at the Poster Supply counter located just inside the entrance of the poster hall. Also provided are special 'Poster Presenter' badges and 'I'll return in ___ minute' signs.
