PRESENTATION INFORMATION

PLATFORM PRESENTATIONS:

FINAL PowerPoint presentations MUST be submitted by email to worldassocmedlaw@gmail.com no later than November 20, 2022 (specific instructions will be emailed to you under separate cover). The presentations are loaded into a master document ahead of time, and thus, due to logistical issues and time constraints, we will NOT be able to accomodate receiving an updated presentation to switch out at the Congress.

POSTER PRESENTATION INFORMATION

WAML will provide boards and push pins. Posters must fit within a 45-inch by 45-inch (1.1 by 1.1m) space. There will be 2 presentations sharing one side of a 3.9' wide and 7.87" high poster board. Posters are a combination of text and graphics. Plan on information that can be seen from at least 3 feet (.9 meters) away. Consider a headline that will grab the attention of colleagues who are walking by. Text should be large, not smaller that 18 point. Graphics should have captions.

A well-designed POSTER should:  (1) Facilitate discussion between the presenter and the viewers; (2) Contain an abstract and succinct introductory material; (3) Clearly and simply state methods, major results and conclusions; (4) Use simple graphs and tables and large clear illustrations; (5) Have a font large enough to be read from a distance of several feet; (6) Be augmented by “handout” materials if necessary, and; (7) Not be crowded with too much information.
