2019 Poster Size Restrictions and Requirements


Information for Poster Presenters

Our team of organizers and volunteers are looking forward to meeting everyone and geeking out on three full days of social media research. One of the highlights of the conference is the Poster Presentation which will feature 45 posters. The poster session will provide an interactive forum for you to present and discuss your research with the conference attendees.


  • Bring your poster with you to the conference on Saturday, July 20 (Day 2) and leave it with our volunteers at the registration desk between 8:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Our volunteers will set up your poster for you.
  • Poster boards (and velcro tape) will be supplied.
  • The poster session will be on Saturday, July 20 at 17:30 – 19:30. Please feel free to leave your poster up for viewing on the next day of the conference.
  • Also each poster presenter is invited (optional) to participate in a “one-minute madness” presentation to highlight your research during the Reception at the Social Media Lab on Friday, July 19 at 18:00 – 20:00. (Please don’t bring your poster to the Friday reception.)
