Poster Submission:

You can find the poster template [here]. It consists of a single powerpoint slide, formatted to print to 24 in. x 32 in. It contains some text boxes, logos, and a general outline for the posters. You don't need to follow the outline exactly; it is meant only to give guidance. Please don't make a dark background on the poster or on sections of the poster, as that will complicate printing.
