GEM Poster Guidelines

We, the GEM Student Representatives, host the GEM Student Poster Competition. The competition is designed to be feedback oriented, with students being judged over various areas of poster making and oral presentation. Student's ballots will be returned to them during the conference or afterwards by email. You may sign up for the poster competition as late as Student Day (the Sunday of GEM). To sign up for the GEM Student Poster competition, click here.

Below are some criteria students should consider when constructing their poster.

Scientific Criteria

-Relevance. Through connections to past works, how well does this current study advance, compliment, or supplement previously published works.

-Methodology. The process in which the study was performed should be well articulated and described.

-Results/Current Progress. Pending the current state of the project, are results (or future hopeful results) described and relevant to the work. Future work, if any, should be included and described.

-Oral Articulation. How well articulated was your verbal/oral presentation. Presentation should be cohesive with the poster.

Visual Presentation

-Balance. The poster should be filled with information without being considered cluttered. Avoid unnecessary blank spaces.

-Legibility. Poster should be legible from a normal standing distance (~2-6 feet / 0.6 - 1.8 meters). You may want to avoid font sizes less than 24. Figures should be large enough to be identifiable.

-Graphics. Figures are formatted clearly. All information should be clearly described (e.g., titles, legends, scales, color bars, etc.). Any expository dialogue pertaining to the figure should be present without appearing cluttered (see Balance).

-Flow. The poster follows a logical order. Order should be intuitive.
