RE: NSH Poster info

From:"Gamble,Marilyn S"

The following is excerpted from the NSH website.  It was information from the 2002 convention, but should not change for 2003.  Check the website at a later date for the most current information. 
It is found under NSH Convention - Posters:

ABSTRACT FORMAT: Two page maximum, typed single or double spaced. Title should be centered, typed in all caps. Double space, then centered under title, type name, degrees, employment address and contact phone number (optional), in upper/lower case letters. Double space, then type abstract. Abstracts of accepted posters are included as part of the Symposium/Convention notebook and will be published as submitted, without editing.

POSTER FORMAT: One corkboard will be provided (8' wide by 4' high). The top of poster must include the TITLE, AUTHOR(S), and INSTITUTION(S). Recommend title lettering to be 1" high and text lettering at least 1/2" high. Author(s) is responsible for all titles and headings. Poster should be self explanatory, simple and specific, presenting material in a logical, legible manner. Basic theories or hypotheses should be presented with as much supporting data as possible and a conclusion. Introduction, written material, photos, charts and graphs, should be in a sequential fashion, and trademarks must be indicated where appropriate. A disclaimer may be posted to indicate that, "results and/or modifications are in preparation for publication and cannot be used without permission of author(s)."  Visit the web for information on how to make posters:

SECURITY: NSH will have security in the exhibit hall each evening. However, if your display includes special photographs or equipment, you may remove your poster at the end of each day and reposition the next morning.

RESPONSIBILITY: The National Society for Histotechnology cannot be responsible for expenses incurred by presenters. Authors are responsible for: setting-up, maintaining, removing, storing and mailing posters; push-pins to affix posters to corkboard; being available to discuss material with convention attendees; and for all expenses incurred in preparation and presentation of poster. IF ATTENDING THE CONVENTION ONLY TO PRESENT A POSTER, THE $35 REGISTRATION FEE IS REQUIRED.

POSTER JUDGING:  Posters being judged are categorized as Veterinary, Industry, and Research (VIR), Clinical or Vendor presentations.  All posters are judged on technical content and appearance.  The winning poster from the VIR and Clinical categories will each receive a $250 honorarium, sponsored by Sakura Finetek U.S.A., Inc.  Vendor posters receive honorable mention only.
