ISMRM Policy Regarding Presentation Slides

Content of CME activities will be restricted to pure science, industry issues, and operation of devices, and should not include any advertising, corporate logos, trade names or a product group message of an ACCME-defined Commercial Interest.

Presentations must give a balanced view of therapeutic options and use of generic names will contribute to this impartiality. Trade names or company names should only be used if essential. If included, where available trade names from several companies should be used, not just trade names from a single company.

Traditional Poster Guidelines

Back to Top

A traditional poster presentation combines a visual display on a poster board of the highlights of research with a question-and-answer opportunity. You will be assigned a time period during which you should be present at your poster for discussion and questions. In addition, the poster will be available for viewing by attendees during all hours the workshop is open.

Note: You must print your own poster, and it should be done before you leave for the workshop. Do not expect printing services on-site.


Each presenter is assigned a square space with maximum dimensions of 36 inches wide by 36 inches high (approx. 91.44 cm x 91.44 cm). Posters exceeding these measurements (i.e., extending into areas reserved for other posters) may be removed.

Posters will be attached to their spaces with either tape or push-pins, which will be provided at the workshop.
