General Information for making posters
Unless you have produced posters in the past, it is strongly recommended that you attend one of the poster creation workshops before trying to create your SRS poster. Dates, times, and locations of these workshops are provided in the 'Poster Support' drop down item off the menu navbar below 'Author'.
Plotter Paper Size: Plotting paper is 42" wide. Thus you will have a maximum of 42" in height for a landscape orientation poster or 42" in width for a portrait orientation poster. You should allow for a 1 inch border around your poster.
Poster display area and Layout: Posters will be displayed on a single 66" wide and 48" long panel. Landscape oriented posters should be more than 60" wide x 42" high. Portrait oriented posters can be mounted side-by-side (2 posters that are each up to 30" wide and 42" high), however it is strongly recommended that you produce a single landscape poster. Previous posters may be seen in the archives on the SRS website. Poster weight removable mounting strips will be provided to hang posters on the panels.
Style: Use guidelines published by the professional societies in your major, if available. Your faculty advisor can help you with style decisions. Your poster must have a white background. This vastly improves printing speed and reduces ink usage. It is also recommended that you see the poster preparation guide web links on the SRS website.
Other display elements: There is no table display space. If you have special needs with how your poster needs to be displayed, please make this known via the special request option under the Author tab on the SRS website. While we want to meet these special needs, we cannot guarantee that all special set-up requests can be met due to space and other considerations.
