ASHHRA 53rd Annual Conference & Exposition
Sept. 16 - 19, 2017   |   Seattle, Washington

Poster Presentations

The Call for the Poster Presentations is now CLOSED.
If you are interested in submitting a proposal for the 2018 ASHHRA annual conference, complete this form to be notified when the Call opens.

ASHHRA is offering an exclusive opportunity for your best practice to be prominently on display as a poster presentation. You will be face-to-face with attendees, making valuable connections and be seen as the expert prominently displayed at the ASHHRA annual conference.

By facilitating informal discussions between presenters and their audience, poster presentations provide a more intimate forum for exchange than regular presentations. Ideally, a well-constructed poster will be self-explanatory and free you from answering obvious questions so that you are available to supplement and discuss particular points of interest. Successful poster presentations are those which achieve both coverage and clarity.

New location in 2017 - poster presentations will be in the ASHHRA Exhibit Hall during exhibit hall hours

Viewers should be able to scan material quickly. It takes about 3 seconds to attract a viewer. Have you provided all the pertinent facts? Will a viewer walk away understanding your major findings after a quick glance of your materials? Will a more thorough reviewer learn enough to ask informed questions? Some questions to consider when making your poster are “what would I need to know if I was reading this information?”

Suggested content includes title/author label and abstract; most successful posters provide brief statements of introduction, method, subjects, procedure, results and conclusion.

Is your poster clear? Is there an evident sequence of information indicated by arrows or letters? Is the material presented in a clear and concise fashion? Put the main points you want to convey in a distinct manner that will generate discussion. Be selective but self-explanatory with what you share to garner communication.
