Student Poster Session Guidelines

Poster sessions are a valuable opportunity for students to present papers and meet with interested attendees for in-depth technical discussions. As provided by TRB, the goals in designing a poster should be:

  • To attract attention.
  • To provide a clear overview of your work.
  • To provide enough material to explain the research without an oral explanation.
  • To provide enough material to initiate discussion and questions without overwhelming the audience.

The Local Arrangements Committee will provide one (1) piece of foam board (40 inches x 60 inches) and two (2) easels for each student. If your poster if larger than 40 inches x 60 inches, please email Erin Eurek no later than Friday, Sept. 9 with the size of your poster so that the LAC can make every effort to accommodate your poster.

TRB provides additional suggestions regarding Poster Design Guidelines.
