2018 Winter Topical Meeting

Precision Engineering for Micro and Nanotechnology

Thursday – Friday, February 1-2, 2018
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Livermore, California, USA

Meeting Chairperson:
Robert M. Panas, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Poster Guidelines

  • Posters will be displayed throughout the day on February 2 and poster presenters can mount their posters as soon as they get to the facility on Friday.
  • Presentation of a poster provides an opportunity for effective one-to-one communication. A good format to follow is 1) a brief introduction 2) experimental detail, if novel 3) results and 4) conclusion.
  • A poster panel together with pushpins, will be provided in the poster presentation area.  The presenter’s poster panel segment will measure 4 feet high x 4 feet wide (approximately 1.22m high x 1.22m wide), INCLUDING all poster panel borders.  The presenter will share one side of the poster panel with another presenter, therefore the presenter may want to make the poster slightly less that 4 feet wide so as not to run into the neighbor’s poster.  The poster must be designed to fit within the confines of the 4 feet x 4 feet space and must consist of materials that can be mounted easily with push pins (no thick poster boards).
  • Posters should be legible from a distance of beyond 6 feet so that they can be viewed by a number of people at the same time.  For best results, use a laser type printer or photo-typesetter.  Double-spacing is best for ease in reading, and nothing less than 16 pt. type should be used.  Graphs and charts should be a minimum of 8″ x 11″ with 30 pt. size type for captions and labels.  Photographs, optical micrographs and SEM micrographs should be a minimum of 5″ x 8″ with dimensions (magnification) clearly labeled.
  • There is the option of placing sheets of paper (8-1/2″ x 11″) in a vertical or horizontal position (or mixture of both) on the poster board.  You may wish to trial-run the layout of your poster, leaving approximately 2 inches between each sheet.  Plotter-created posters of a size larger than 4 feet wide by 4 feet high will not be accepted.
  • A printed card with the name of the presenter will be provided by ASPE for the top of the poster panel so that the presenter can easily locate the space designated for his/her poster.

Hardware Guidelines

ASPE will provide tables, and those who want to display hardware INSTEAD of a poster, will be given 3 feet of wall space on the table to display the hardware.
