3. Poster submission
Students selected to participate with a Poster to the ARA Congress are invited to:
submit a full paper including abstract to to the Congress Chair at contact@AmericanRomanianAcademy.org, and
submit and present a poster during the Poster Session.
The abstract should be limited to 300 words and should be in a topic area relevant to the Congress. The abstracts will be reviewed for relevance, scholarship and academic integrity. Only one submission per participant will be allowed. Participants will need to be registered for the ARA Congress.
Poster guidelines and requirements:
Posters Size: 3'x4' (~A0 according to the International Standards)
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.
DEADLINE FOR POSTER SUBMISSIONS: Please send us the abstract of your poster no later than April 30, 2019. You will be notified when your poster will be accepted. Poster presentation will take place at the 2019 ARA Congress Venue.
