Poster Guidelines

Where and when is the poster session?

The poster session will be held from 1:30- 3:30 p.m. on Friday, May 5 in the lobby of and hallway in front of the Owens Auditorium in the David H. Koch Cancer Research Building at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. INBT and our sponsors provide exciting prizes for our poster session participants, and we know you will not want to miss out!

Which research topics are appropriate for presentation at the poster session?

Nanobiotechnology is a multidisciplinary field, therefore research from medicine, engineering, public health and the basic sciences are all relevant topics for presentation at this symposium. The theme of the symposium is Cancer: The Big Picture, which means that research from a variety of disciplines is appropriate.  You will be contacted by INBT regarding your poster ONLY if it is determined NOT to be appropriate for presentation.

How big should my poster be?

The dimensions of your poster should be NO LARGER than 4’ wide by 4’ tall, and smaller is better.  You will be assigned a location number for your poster. Please post your poster only in your assigned spot. Posters not in their assigned spot will not be judged.

What should I expect during the poster session?

Judging will begin promptly at 1:30 p.m. You will be assigned to stand by your poster to answer questions during either A session (1:30-2:30 p.m.) or B session (2:30-3:30 p.m.). You, or a representative from your research group, must stand by your poster during your assigned judging time. If someone is not representing your research when the judges come by, you will be disqualified from judging. During the time you are not required to stand by your poster, you may move around and visit other presenters’ posters.


POSTERS MUST BE IN PLACE BY 1:15 PM. The poster submission deadline is Monday, May 1.  Register online and submit your poster title here.
