Poster Presentations

Poster presentations have become a tradition for the ACSP conference. Presenters will share their work during the Friday afternoon reception in the Exhibit Hall. Before and after the Friday reception for the posters, the posters will be on display in the Exhibit Hall.

There will not be a timed presentation of your poster with a captive audience, but during this reception on Friday, you must be available to answer questions from those attending. We'll have afternoon snacks brought into the exhibit hall periodically throughout the event, and drinks will always be available.

A committee will judge “Best Poster” on Friday morning so the winning poster can have a blue ribbon to display during the reception. We will also have a People’s Choice award – the winner chosen by secret ballot using the conference app during the reception. Winners will be notified in advance, and both poster prizes will announced at the Saturday Luncheon.

Send a quick email of a necessary withdrawal to All posters will be highlighted in the conference program and conference app, and a poster that doesn’t appear at the session will cause disappointment.

  • Put your name and the Abstract ID# on the back of your poster please!
  • Poster dimensions are approximately 36” x 48” with no minimum size and a vertical or horizontal orientation.
  • The poster must be able to be affixed to the poster boards with simple push pins.
  • Posters must be brought to the ACSP Conference Registration Desk starting Thursday morning of the conference, and no later than 10:00am on Friday morning of the conference.
  • Posters can be removed at any time after the Friday reception in the exhibit hall, but we recommend leaving them on display through the end of Saturday.
  • Any posters left after Saturday afternoon will be left with the hotel’s recycling program.
