Annual Meeting

Poster Presentation Guidelines

Below you will find information that will help you prepare for your participation in the technical program at this year’s Annual Meeting. We are glad to have you with us and hope the experience is a good one.

CHANGE IN SPEAKER OR CANCELLATION: As a courtesy to the audience, please let us know as soon as possible if there is a change in your presentation. If there is some last-minute difficulty, please arrange for someone else to present your poster rather than canceling it.

All persons attending the Annual Meeting are required to pay the appropriate registration fee as indicated on the registration form. ALL PRESENTERS MUST REGISTER AND PAY ALL REGISTRATION FEES FOR THE MEETING TO ENSURE PUBLICATION OF ABSTRACT IN FINAL PROGRAM.

For changes to speaker or program prior to the meeting, please call the SRA Secretariat at 703-790-1745 or email


  1. Each presenter will be assigned a 4′ high x 8′ wide section of a poster board. Boards may be an inch smaller in either direction due to a border.
  2. All lettering should be legible from 5 feet away. The minimum type size should be no less than 18 points and the style should be bold or semibold in simple, clean-looking type. Text material can be typed at about 12 points, then enlarged on a copying machine to as large as 24 points without significant loss of clarity.
  3. Each author is responsible for assembly and removal of his/her poster.
  4. It is important to adhere to the following set up/teardown times:
    Set-up: Monday between 3:30-5 PM
    Teardown: Monday between 8-8:30 PM
  5. Presenters should bring their materials for attaching illustrations to the poster boards (tacks/pins). Please do not use tape. Materials left after the removal deadlines will be taken down and stored as carefully as possible. However, SRA accepts no responsibility for material that may be lost or damaged. Please remove your materials on schedule.

We thank you for presenting your work at the SRA Annual Meeting and look forward to seeing you in Texas in December.
