Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for Posters at Botany 2000

  1. What are the dimensions for posters in regular (not "Recent Topics") sessions?

    Dimensions for posters in all regular sessions are 4' tall and 8' wide (occupying all of a 4' x 8' bulletin board).

  2. What are the dimensions for posters for the "Recent Topics" session?

    Dimensions for Recent Topics are half as wide as those for the regular session, or 4' tall and 4' wide (half of a 4' x 8' bulletin board).

  3. How can I attach the poster to the board?

    Posters can be attached to the bulletin boards with push pins or velcro. Although limited supplies of push pins will be available on site, many people will be mounting posters at the same time. You may wish to bring your own mounting supplies to avoid possible frustration!

  4. Where and when can I display my poster?

    Poster 'set up' time is Monday, August 7 from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm. Posters will be available for viewing in the Oregon Convention Center (OCC) Exhibition Hall A, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm for the duration of the meeting (Monday, August 7 through Wednesday, August 9). ALL posters will be in the same location at the conference.

  5. When do I need to remove my poster?

    Poster 'take down' time is Wednesday from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. All materials remaining after that time will be discarded.

  6. When do poster presenters need to be available to answer questions?

    There will be a conference-wide poster session (Session 27) where all poster presenters should stand by their posters to field questions, engage in discussion, etc. That session is scheduled for Tuesday, August 8 from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm.

  7. What if I have not yet been assigned a poster number/location?

    Recent Topics poster submissions have not been assigned poster numbers, as the deadline for submissions has not yet closed. When poster numbers are assigned, Jeff Osborn will either be in touch before the meeting with that information or it will be available at the registration area.
