Poster Presentation Information
The information below covers everything you need to know for presenting a poster at the State of the Arctic Conference.
Preparing your Poster
The poster boards will be 4 feet high x 8 feet wide (1.25 meters x 2.5 meters), so your poster(s) should fit within those space constraints.

ARCUS staff will be on-hand to assist you in the poster room. We encourage you to set up your posters as early as possible and to keep them up for the duration of the conference, so that you can share your results with your colleagues in informal discussions as well as during the poster sessions.
