Instructions for ACT Poster Presentations

Upon acceptance of the poster abstract, the presenting author must register for the meeting by August 1, 2023. Full meeting registration is required; there are no exceptions. Designated authors (indicated in the Abstract Book, available online, and/or on the Event Mobile App) must display their poster in the Exhibit Hall and attend the Poster Session on Monday, November 13, from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm (EST).

If the presenter fails to display their poster in the Exhibit Hall, the abstract submission will not appear in International Journal of Toxicology, the scientific journal of ACT. Presenting authors may present only one poster at the Annual Meeting, but there is no limit to the number of posters that someone may co-author.

Printed poster material should be organized within an area that is four feet high by seven feet wide. The top of your poster board should contain the titles, authors, and affiliations, with a printed font size of at least 3/4 inches high. A copy of the abstract may be posted toward the upper-left corner and a set of conclusions toward the lower-right corner of your poster. The abstract should be printed in a font size of about 1/4 inch high. Poster information should be legible from a distance of at least three to four feet. Material, including line drawings or graphs, should be clearly presented and may be computer generated (laser printing and matte finish is preferred). Pushpins will be provided.

It is the responsibility of the poster presenter to remove the poster. Failure to do so could result in damage to or loss of the unclaimed poster. The American College of Toxicology is not responsible for posting, removing, or storing posters and assumes no responsibility for any poster not removed during the designated dismantle time.

There will be an additional option for you to provide a digital version of your poster in an online ePoster gallery. Poster presenters are highly encouraged to also use the ePoster option, if it is available; however, the ePoster is not required. In-person meeting attendance and presentation at the Poster Session is required even if the presenter opts to provide an ePoster.
