  • Poster submission

Students who wish to participate with a Poster are invited to submit their proposal abstracts to the Congress Chair: Ala Mindicanu

A student special discount registration of $35 is available if paid by May 27, 2016 (regular registration for students is $75).         


Poster guidelines and requirements:

  • Posters Size: 3'x4'

  • Text should be limited to approximately one-fourth of the poster space and the top portion of the poster should clearly indicate the title and authors.

  • The font should be simple and bold to be readable from a distance of at least three feet – it is recommended that the font size be 16 or 18 points.

  • The visuals should be simple and bold. Dark text on a light background is easiest to read. Please avoid color-on-color, especially bright colors which have a tendency to vibrate, and keep the backgrounds simple. Choose a simple color scheme with only 2-3 related colors. A good rule of thumb is to keep the graphics and text simple and uncluttered.

  • Participants can have their poster displayed on the ARA website, given that they provide a digital copy preferable in PDF format and an author's consent.


Timeline for poster submission: Please send us the abstract of your poster no later than April 15, 2016. You will be notified when your poster will be accepted.  Poster presentation will take place at the 2016 ARA Congress Venue.







the 40th ARA Congress
