Remember! Include a COI Disclosure on Your Poster

Add a conflict of interest disclosure anywhere on your poster. For example, this could be in the footer of your poster and/or in the same area where you include funding acknowledgements or collaborations. The inclusion of a conflict of interest disclosure is new since 2023.

What is a COI Disclosure? A statement on behalf of all authors describing any competing and/or relevant financial interest. All potential sources of bias, including affiliations, funding sources, and financial or management relationships, that may constitute conflicts of interest should be listed. If there are no conflicts to declare, simply include this statement: The authors declare no competing financial interest.

Poster Size and Institutional Logos

Each poster space (or board) 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. Your poster may be any shape, size, orientation as long as it fits on the board.

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. 

Poster Codes and Number

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

Poster Set-up and Removal

Posters are to be set-up on the assigned day 6:30-8:00 AM. Poster set-up is not permitted on Sunday evening. Posters should be removed each day 7:00-8:00 PM (except Thursday when posters are removed 2:30-3:00 PM).

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.
