POSTER PRESENTATION INFORMATION

Students who submit poster presentations will have numerous opportunities to network with over 1,000 professional social workers and exhibitors. Students submitting poster presentations at the Annual Conference should plan to drop off their posters at the Borgata on the morning of Sunday, May 4, 2014, so the posters can be hung for display.

Student posters will be displayed in common areas during all three days of the conference. Students may stand by their posters during refreshment and lunch breaks to discuss their work with other conference attendees.  Students who register to present posters will receive additional poster set up information closer to the date of the conference.

Poster Size: all posters will be hung on wall panels so they must be no larger than 22” x 28" inches.

For ALL Posters, include:

· Title, author, date, school, and faculty sponsor if applicable

· Abstract of 50 words or less that summarizes the poster content

· Discussion of results/findings and their implications for SW practice

· References

For a Research Focus, include:

· Background including research question and relevant literature

· Methodology used in conducting research

· Findings – often presented in tables, graphs and charts

For a Conceptual or Policy Focus, include:

· Background including a statement of the problem/policy

· Brief review of relevant literature

DO’S AND DON’TS OF POSTER PRESENTATIONS

DO divide the contents of your poster into appropriate sections.(E.g. title of paper, author, institutional affiliation; abstract; methodology; data; results; conclusions). Be sure to include each section on separate sheet(s) of paper.

DON’T mount the entire text of a paper as the poster.

DO use a neutral poster or matte board. A splash of color here and there, perhaps highlighting central finding(s) or provocative results, will make your poster "stand out" from the crowd. Also, graphs, charts and/or tables (color if possible) help make your poster interesting.

DON’T use less than 18 font for any text you mount- small font is hard to read.

DO use larger lettering for the poster's title, author and institutional affiliation but avoid fonts that are script or difficult to read. Also, use a black felt-tip pen (Sharpie) if hand lettering is required.

DON’T use audiovisual equipment or anything that requires electricity.

DO be concise with your written material. Save elaborative points for discussion/interaction with viewers. For conclusions, focus on a central finding that lends itself to informal discussion.

DO feel free to stand by your poster during the refreshment breaks to network and explain your project to other conference attendees.

AND MOST OF ALL, DO HAVE FUN DEVELOPING AND SHARING YOUR POSTER PRESENTATION!
