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).

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 2024 to present and validate the published abstract. Register here

  2. The poster presentation is scheduled for Saturday, April 6th, 2024 from 6:30 pm - 8 pm, in Salon D (2nd floor).  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 Sunday, April 7th at Noon. All posters and materials not removed will be discarded.






All the PESTOLA 2024 posters will be presented both on-site at the PESTOLA 2024 meeting and will also be posted in a virtual poster hall for extended viewing beyond the meeting. The virtual poster hall will allow the poster presenter the potential for a larger and more focused audience.
