Physical Poster Guidelines


The recommended size of a paper poster is 4 feet tall (vertical) by 5 feet wide (horizontal).  The AACPDM will provide poster boards which measure 8 feet tall (vertical) by 4 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:
