Poster Instructions

Poster Venues

Different venues have accompanying posters. The Doctoral Consortium, Student Research Competition, and Student Design Competition will display their posters in the Exhibit Hall from Tuesday to Thursday; however, these posters may also be used earlier in the conference depending on the venue. The Late-Breaking Work posters will rotate being shown in the Exhibit Hall with one group being displayed on Tuesday, and one group on Wednesday. Instructions for times to set up your posters will be available closer to the conference.

Poster Sizes

There will be two posters per poster board. Your printed poster should not exceed 1 metre by 1 metre (Imperial Unit conversion tools available here, here, and here). There will be tacks available to fix your posters to the poster boards.

Audiovisual and computing equipment will not be supplied. Power outlets will not be available, and participants are kindly asked to not bring any bulky items that may impede the flow of traffic (so please don’t use the poster in lieu of large demos). The participants may include QR codes in the poster to link to supplementary material online (such as scenario videos or interactive prototypes). Participants wishing to hang flyers, business cards, or other handouts to the poster are welcome to do so, but they must bring their own supplies (e.g. envelopes, paper clips) to hang these materials to the poster. Please note that tape cannot be used to secure anything to the poster board (only tacks can be used for this).

We will be updating this page with additional details (e.g., set up times, poster locations) as we approach CHI 2018, so look back often for new information!
