General Poster Guidelines

Poster boards are 4 feet (121 cm) high by 4 feet (121 cm) wide. Each poster board will be numbered for identification purposes. The poster board number can be located onsite in the conference program. Posters can be mounted using pushpins or thumbtacks (please bring your own).

Posters can be prepared in portrait or landscape format, preferably printed on one sheet. The top of the poster should include the title, authors and their affiliations, as indicated on the abstract. It should also include a statement of purpose, methods, results and conclusions (see below). Graphics should be simple and clear.  All text should be written clearly in good English and should be legible from a distance of at least 3 feet (90 cm).

The poster layout should be designed to include the following information:

  1. PURPOSE: Hypothesis explicitly stated. Study methodology clearly and succinctly described. 
  2. METHODS: Exposure and outcome exactly and explicitly described, including any written instruments used to measure exposure or outcome. Analysis clearly and explicitly described. 
  3. RESULTS: if measures of association are estimated then quantitative results should be shown, including the point estimate with confidence intervals.  No abstracts will be accepted of studies which are “going to be done” or do not have at least some preliminary data.
  4. CONCLUSIONS: Conclusions clearly and conservatively reported for the previously stated hypothesis. 

Please ensure that your poster is in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulation and does not include individually identifiable health information (including data and photos). Posting of commercial/product sale advertisements is prohibited. Posters deemed commercial in nature will be removed from the poster hall. No other equipment (AV, computers, etc.) can be displayed next to the poster. Any oversized material mounted on poster boards will be clipped to fit poster board dimensions.

Please prepare 25 hand-out copies (color or B&W) of your poster.  


All abstracts will be published in the Annals of Epidemiology. These abstracts may be reviewed here.
