Allowable Poster Size

Please remember that your printed poster should measure no more than 48 inches (1.2 meters) wide by 48 inches (1.2 meters) high. Please ensure your poster is no larger than these dimensions, as each poster board will be shared by two authors. Please see examples of acceptable sizes below.

Finding Your Final Poster Number

To find your assigned session and your final poster board number, please visit the searchable meeting program on the INS website at Search by your name or abstract title to find your assigned poster session. Your final poster number will be displayed under your abstract title. If you have any difficulty finding your final poster number, please email

Onsite Instructions

As a reminder, all poster sessions are 70-75 minutes and will take place in the Shubert & Majestic Complexes on the 6th Floor. Posters #1-60 will be located in the Shubert Complex, and posters #61-120 will be located in the Majestic Complex. Please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes prior to your session to mount your poster. A volunteer will be available to distribute tacks and assist authors as needed.

The presenting author must be present at the poster session and is expected to remain with the poster to entertain questions for the duration of the session. Poster authors are encouraged to bring copies of their abstract or a handout for interested viewers.

Poster Symposia: Poster symposia occur during regular poster sessions but are grouped together to allow authors to provide a cohesive discussion about their selected topic.

Preparing Your Poster

Remember it is not necessary to include your final poster number on your poster itself. Include the abstract title and authors at the top of your poster in large, bold lettering. Keep in mind that all text and illustrations should be easy to read from a distance of approximately six feet (or two meters), and it is helpful to add visual elements such as graphs, diagrams, tables, etc., to pique viewer interest, and help them move through your major points. Your poster does not need to include your verbatim abstract; instead we recommend summarizing only the most important details of your background, hypothesis, methods, results, and conclusions.
