Instructions for Poster Authors


Poster Presentations

All abstract notifications have been sent to authors for the 2020 annual meeting in Napa. 

If you plan to present your poster, confirmations are due by Monday, January 27, 2020. Use the poster confirmation link in the abstract notification email to confirm EACH accepted abstract. The poster confirmation is separate from meeting registration. It only confirms to the research review committee that you plan to present. Please contact Philip Massey ( if you have any questions on abstract notifications and confirmation, or if you have not yet received a notification email (also please check your junk folders and spam filters),

Posters will be presented on freestanding corkboard easels. Each board is 91" X 45" (approx. 7 1/2 feet by 3 3/4 feet) and stands approximately 3 feet off the ground. These are the poster easels most often seen at other conferences.

Poster Dimensions - Not to exceed 6 1/2 ft x 3 1/2 ft (78 in. x 42 in)

Note: If you choose individual sheets instead of a single large poster, the presentation boards hold up to 28 sheets of 8 1/2 x 11" sheets of paper if in a landscape format (leaving some space in between sheets).

Font - Papers should be typed in as large a font as possible.

We recommend that you bring 50 copies of your presentation to hand out to interested viewers. Make sure your name, address and email are on the paper.

Push pins will be provided.

No Show Policy:   Any cancellations for abstract presentations must be due to professional and/or personal/family health emergencies and be made directly to the AAHB Research Review Chair. Cancellations must be made prior to the first day of the Annual Meeting.
