Guidelines for Posters

The Posters will be visited by many attendees at the conference. It is important that your poster is clear, concise, and well laid out for maximum impact.

A tack board approximately 4 ft high by 8 ft wide (1.2 m high by 2.4 m wide) will be provided. Your poster should fit within these dimensions. Dimensions are subject to change.  Further details will be provided by early May 2022.

1. Thumbtacks will be provided. These should be large and strong enough to support your poster.
2. The title of your poster must be in lettering at least 1 in high (72 pt.), and your poster must include your name and affiliation.  
3. You may want to include an acknowledgments section to thank colleagues for their help on your project (such as an advisor or fellow students), as well as to mention any disclosures or funding information.
4. Your poster should include aims, essential experimental details, key results, a simple summary, and conclusions.
5. Text should be minimized to avoid attendees having to read too many details. The lettering should be large enough to be legible 5 to 6 ft away. Commercial names, logos, and trade names may not be used throughout the text. Use a generic term to describe any commercial product utilized/investigated.
6. Figures, tables, and scales should be large enough to read clearly.
7. Posters should be self-explanatory; they should not require additional verbal explanations.
At the conference:
8. The poster area will be open for setup between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 20th. Times are subject to change and will be confirmed in the final program. The posters will be placed in the foyer where the evening Banquet will be held.
9. You must be present at your poster on: Wednesday, July 20th from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. during the poster session before the Banquet.
10. Awards for the top 3 posters, scored by a panel of experts, will be presented at the banquet.

Travel Grant

Travel grants are available for students to attend the Environmental Degradation conference. Each travel grant is worth up to $1,500 and can be used to cover the cost of airfare, hotel accommodation, and conference registration. Prospective Students must be currently engaged in graduate studies (Masters or Ph.D. level) and working on a material degradation issue connected with light water reactors.

Fill out the form and submit it to David Morton at David.Morton@unnpp.gov by July 7, 2022.
