Each poster presenter will have an assigned space. You will be able to set up your poster approximately one hour before the session starts at 15:00 in the hotel's Main Foyer.  Please ensure that posters are made of lightweight materials, such as paper (laminated or other), cardboard, foam core etc. to put up on the panels. Posters will be posted with push pins made available at the poster session. Note that there will be no electrical outlets or audio visual equipment available.

The live display of poster boards is 3.75 feet wide x 3.75  feet tall (110 cm x 110 cm). Please make sure your poster is slightly smaller so that it fits in the space. Poster Presenters are responsible for bringing their posters to the conference. ComSoc will not be able to print the posters. If you plan on printing your poster when you arrive, please note that there are no onsite printing facilities at the hotel. There is a FedEx Office Print & Ship Center approximately 8 miles away at: 14925 Shady Grove Rd F, Rockville, MD 20850. 
Posters must be removed immediately upon conclusion of the session. If you do not plan on keeping your poster, please bring it to the registration desk and our staff will dispose of it for you. If this is your first time presenting a poster or you just want a refresher, please view this video on “How to create a better research poster in less time.”

A rough turnaround time for poster boards is about 1-2 hours per board.  Turnaround time is dependent on incoming customer traffic/queue may vary times.
The average cost will be about $172.50 before tax
