All PAG attendees and exhibitors with paid registration are invited to submit poster abstracts. A poster abstract is a visual presentation where materials in addition to the abstract — such as genetic maps, physical maps, photographs, graphs, and/or tables — are presented on a display board along with textual summaries of the material. Over 1,100 poster abstracts will be presented at PAG, and for attendees this is a very valuable aspect of the conference.

Physical Poster Specifications

The poster presentation space available is 3ft wide x 4ft high, or 36in w x 48 in h (0.92m wide  x 1.22m high). Dimensions are for a vertical poster. It is important to note that there is an approximately 1 inch metal rim on the border, which reduces the poster board VISIBLE space to 2 feet 10 inches wide by 3 feet 10 inches high. (1.17 meters x .86 meters).  

Also note, posters are displayed directly next to each other, so there is no room on the horizontal sides for overflow. Should you require more vertical space, however, posters greater than 46in. in height can hang a few inches beyond the edge of the presentation board.
