COVID-19 vaccination is required for in-person attendance at TLM 2022. Additional information can be found on the TLM In-Person Experience Page.

Presenter Information

A poster session is comprised of simultaneous informal presentations by several investigators in the Poster Hall. To communicate with all interested attendees, the best approach is to minimize the specific details presented on the poster. This year, AASLD strongly recommends you also upload your poster to the poster platform, in addition to being present in the Poster Hall. You will be able to expand your reach and maximize the transfer of information by creating an audio file to accompany your iPoster. Remember that your scientific message must be legible and clearly stated to the viewer.

Poster Presentation Guidelines

Your poster presentation is an opportunity to network and field questions about your abstract from other attendees! The format of the poster presentation is at the discretion of each presenter – this can be a prepared talk about your abstract, in the style of a Q&A, etc. Presenters are expected to be present at their poster during the designated Presentation Time noted below.

  • #1000 - 1999 Poster Session I (Friday, November 4) 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
  • #2000 - 2999 Poster Session II (Saturday, November 5) 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM

General Policies

TLM and Walter E. Washington Convention Center (WWCC) staff are not able to accept packages on behalf of poster presenters. Do not ship your poster directly to the convention center or Poster Hall, as any personal shipments will be refused.

Poster Hall Policies

You may enter the Poster Hall, located in Hall E of the WWCC, starting at 7 a.m. EDT on the day of your scheduled presentation to hang your poster. When you enter the Poster Hall, please proceed directly to your assigned poster board. Push pins and a poster presenter ribbon will be available at your assigned poster board.

Poster presenters are responsible for removing their posters from their boards between 5 and 7 p.m. EDT on the day of their scheduled presentation. Any posters or poster tubes remaining in the Poster Hall after 7 p.m. EDT will be discarded. Overnight storage is not permitted.

Poster Size

TLM does not have an official poster template. The maximum size of TLM poster presentations is 4’ high by 6’ wide. TLM will provide push pins to affix your presentation to the poster board along with a poster presenter ribbon at each poster board.

Required Poster Information

Poster presentations must include full disclosure information for the entire author string in the bottom right corner of your poster. No product-specific promotional material or event may appear or occur in educational space or material or during an educational activity.

Photography Policy

The photography policy allows photos of slides for personal, social or non-commercial use; however, presenters have the right to request no photography, and in those situations, photography is strictly prohibited. If you do not want to allow attendees to take photos of your slides, you may download this NO PHOTOGRAPHY icon and add it to your poster.

Suggested Guidelines for Preparing an Effective Poster

There is no required format or orientation, so you may format your poster as you wish provided that it does not exceed the 4’ by 6’ size limitation. TLM suggests the following guidelines:

  • Text Lettering: Lettering for text and illustrations should be at least a font size of 30 points (0.4” or 10.5mm).
  • Depicting Sections: Each section should be numbered with text in a font size of 50 points (0.7” or 17.5mm) to guide the reader through your poster. Color is an effective method for separating sections and adding graphic impact. Try to avoid color combinations that are difficult to read.
  • Premise: Your poster should include three to five brief sentences that outline information necessary to understand the study and why it was performed. The question(s) to be asked or the hypotheses tested should be clearly and succinctly stated.
  • Methods: Outline your methods briefly, providing only details for new methods, or modifications of older methods.
  • Graphics: Results presented in the form of a graph or chart are always more effective than blocks of text. Provide a legend for symbols and other details and interpretation of results below each panel.
  • Conclusion: State the conclusion succinctly in large type. Many viewers read this first; hence, it should be easily understandable
