Poster Guidelines

Where and when is the poster session?

  • May 17, 1:30- 3 p.m. upstairs in the Clipper Room of Shriver Hall at the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus. Some posters may also be located in the lobby of Shriver. INBT and our sponsors provide exciting prizes for our poster session participants, and we know you will not want to miss out! Register online and submit your poster title here.
  • POSTERS MUST BE IN PLACE BY 1:15 PM. However the smarter thing to do is to come for the speaker talks between 8 a.m. and noon and put your poster up early. The poster submission deadline is Monday, May 13.

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

ASSUME THAT YOUR POSTER HAS BEEN ACCEPTED. 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 Translating the Promise of Nanoscience from Laboratory to Development, which means that research from a variety of disciplines is appropriate.    If for some reason your poster is determined NOT to be appropriate for presentation, someone from INBT will contact you.

How big should my poster be?

  • NO LARGER than 4 ft. wide by 4 ft tall, smaller is better
  • WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT THE POSTER SESSION, 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 (1:30-2:15 p.m.) or B session (2:15-3 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.

If you have any questions about how posters should be displayed, set-up times, dimensions, etc., please contact Mary Spiro at 410-516-4802 or via email at
