Demonstration Posters are only E-Posters this year.

The deadline to submit your E-Poster has passed.

 Please ensure your poster is in person-first language and does not include any brand names. Download the flyer and brochure for more details on person-first language.

E-Poster Guidelines (Scientific and Demonstration Posters)

E-Posters must be submitted using either the PowerPoint Template or Keynote Template. Please email meetings@aacpdm.org if you need the Keynote Template. Templates will also be available to download as an optional task in the Speaker Harvester.

Once you create a one slide poster (either in PowerPoint or Keynote), save the file as a PDF, and upload your file to the Speaker Harvester.

Please name your PDF file as "posternumber_lastname.pdf" (For example, SP32_Banner.pdf)

Physical Poster Guidelines (SCIENTIFIC POSTERS ONLY)



The maximum size of a traditional paper poster is 4 feet tall (vertical) by 6 feet wide (horizontal).  The AACPDM will provide poster boards which measure 4 feet tall (vertical) by 8 feet wide (horizontal) that will hold 1 poster on each side.


The heading for the poster should include the title, author(s) and affiliation. The heading must be mounted at the top of the board. Lettering should be large enough to be read from a minimum distance of four feet.

Contact Information

Please include contact information or business cards attached to your poster for attendees to contact you at a later date.


In preparing and presenting your poster, please keep in mind that your audience may represent many disciplines and perspectives, including physicians, therapists, researchers and parents.

Tacks or push pins for attaching your poster to the board will be provided.

Poster arrangement can vary; however, a sample arrangement for easy viewing is illustrated below:
