Posters must be 3 ft x 5 ft or smaller in size. You are responsible for transporting the poster to and from the conference and setting it up.

Things to keep in mind when designing your poster:

  • All parts of the poster (including axis labels!) should be easily readable from at least 3 feet away
  • Good posters have a clear logical sequence, e.g. introduction, study design and methods, data collected, conclusion
  • To ensure visual effectiveness of your poster, use large lettering and a minimum of text
  • Poster content should be scientifically rigorous while still accessible to undergraduate physics students; avoid jargon when possible


Posters will be judged on the following points:

  • Clarity of the purpose of the project
  • Explanation of the incorporated method
  • Development to the conclusion or predicted future work
  • Effective oral presentation of the project and answer to presented questions
  • Adequate use of words in the poster
