Do I need to use a poster template?
No, but each poster presenter may use up to a 4' x 4' space (approximately 122 cm x 122 cm.). Any visual aids which might clarify the results of your own work are encouraged. These can include diagrams, charts, figures, illustrations, etc. Do not, however, post your paper text. Graphics should be simple, colorful, well labeled, and clear. The title should be written in letters 1-2 inches (2 to 5 cm) high, and all material should be readable from a distance of 7 feet (2 m).
