2019 Presentation Guidelines For Research Reports (Poster Presentations)


Presentation Guidelines For Research Reports
Poster Presentations

We offer the following guidelines to aid you in a successful presentation at the ASEV National Conference. The goal of a poster session is to convey information by the combination of a visual display, questions and discussion. This is a good opportunity for direct exchange between conference attendees and you, the presenter. It also provides more time than an oral presentation for attendees to absorb the technical information.


  • It is necessary to pre-register for the ASEV National Conference. Click here to register for the conference through June 11. Registration is not complimentary.  We extend our pre-registration member rate of $235 USD to all presenters through June 11. However, ASEV Student Member presenters are entitled to complimentary conference registration (General Registration, Wednesday & Thursday). If you are not an ASEV member, we encourage you to join.
  • Obtain your badge and registration material at the conference in the ASEV registration area.
