Contact Pat Stiede with questions concerning the poster session

Rules and Regulations:

TAPPI will provide the bulletin boards and push pins. Please confine your presentation to a 32 inch x 48 inch (80 x 120 cm) space.All posters will be displayed in the Exhibit Hall.

All illustrations must be prepared in advance. Proper illustration is critical to an effective presentation. The use of large lettering (legible at a distance of 3 feet or more) and minimal textual material is recommended. Use of colored ink in printing and colored paper in framing textual material can be attractive although artistic flair should not be excessive. Illustrations should not be mounted on heavy stock as this makes it difficult to mount them on poster boards. It is the responsibility of the author to design and print his/her poster and get it to the event.

The collection of materials at the end of the conference is the author's responsibility; Any posters remaining after the conference ends will be destroyed.
