Poster Mounting

  1. You must bring your poster to the registration table, 14th floor - between 8 am and 11 am - on  Saturday, February 4th.

  2. PESTOLA will mount your poster with push pins.

  3. The Poster Hall (CRYSTAL ROOM, 2ND FLOOR) will be available on Saturday, February 4, from 2 pm to 8 pm.

  4. The official POSTER VIEWING & SOCIAL is Saturday, February 4, from 6:30 pm - 8 pm.

  5. You are responsible for your poster carriers, tubes, or mailers. PESTOLA is not responsible for any lost or stolen items in the designated space.

Poster Size

  1. The poster board display area is 36" high by 42" wide.

  2. You may prepare a poster that is smaller but DO NOT EXCEED THIS SIZE.


Poster Header

  1. Include the following information at the top of your poster (use lettering at least 1" (2.5 cm) high):

  2. Poster number (as noted in your confirmation email)

  3. Presentation title (use the title as you submitted to the Meeting Planner)

  4. Author information

  5. Author conflict of interest disclosure

  6. Presentation Poster Header


Poster Text

  1. Use large print (at least 1/2" (1.8 cm) high).

  2. Keep text and figure legends concise, but do not omit them.

  3. Including short, legible Introduction and Summary of Conclusions sections on your poster is helpful for attendees.


Poster Illustrations

  1. All illustrations must be made beforehand.

  2. Illustrations must be able to be read from a distance of 3–5 feet (1–2 meters).

  3. Keep illustrative material simple (simple use of color can add emphasis effectively).

  4. Charts, drawings, and illustrations should be more heavily drawn than those prepared for slides.

Poster Printing

  1. Do not print posters on thick or heavy materials such as poster board or vinyl. The material your poster is printed on must be able to be mounted for several hours with pushpins. High-quality paper or fabric posters will stay in place with pushpins.

  2. Print on matte material if possible (glossy results in glare).

  3. Providing printed copies of your abstract (posted next to your poster or placed on the floor underneath your poster board) is helpful for attendees viewing your poster when you are not standing next to it.


Poster Presentation

  1. The primary author or a co-author MUST register for and attend PESTOLA 2023 to present and validate the published abstract.

  2. The poster presentation is scheduled for SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2023 from 6:15 pm - 7:15 pm, in the VENETIAN ROOM.  The presenting author should be at the poster during this time so that attendees can ask questions and meet the author.

  3. If you have posters in more than one topic area, you or a co-author cannot be at all of them, we recommend posting a note on your additional board(s) indicating where they can find you.

Poster Removal

  1. Remove your poster by 8:00 PM. All posters and materials not removed by 8:00 PM will be discarded.


At the PESTOLA 2023 posters will be presented both on-site at PESTOLA and in the Virtual Poster Hall, intended to provide each poster presenter the potential for a larger and more focused audience.
