Poster Specifications

Poster size: 80-90 cm high by 110-120 cm wide (Dimensions to be used for both electronic and physical posters) Posters must be in Horizontal/Landscape mode.

While not required (and will not be considered in judging) presenters may consider utilizing suggestions for adopting a more audience friendly poster format such as suggested here: How to create a better research poster in less time (#betterposter Generation 1) – YouTube

2-minute videos are your way to be as creative as you want to tell us about your work. Examples include: walk us through your field, greenhouses, your technologies, or your poster, anything that makes the audience want to come visit your poster in person. You will be graded for your creativity on the rubric for this video. The 120 second time limit is ENFORCED, and IT will edit out anything from your video that exceeds 120 seconds so please ensure that you stay within time to convey your message to your audience.

Please note, competition posters and presenters will need to be physically present to engage with audience and judges at their assigned poster session times.
