Poster Competition Rules


    • Each poster needs no greater than 3.5 x 3 feet.  Foam boards or bulletin boards will be provided on site.  Push pins will also be available.  Posters can be in color or black and white. Landscape or a vertical format for the poster is fine.


    • Suggested topics to include in the posters include a Title (project title, author names, and affiliations), Abstract, Project Objectives, Background, Materials and Methods, Theory, Results, Conclusions, and Future Plans.


    • A large font is recommended – use at least 18 point font.  Lengthy paragraphs are hard to read, so bulleted lists are encouraged.  Photographs, graphs, and schematics are best with descriptive figure titles.


    • Make sure the poster is easy to read and not overcrowded.


    • Posters and presenters will be judged by a panel of well-qualified industrial representative, faculty, and/or AIChE local section members.  These judges’ decisions are final.


    • This competition does not determine eligibility for the national competition.


    • Cash prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place overall.


    • Categories may be created depending on number of entries.


    • Student authors may participate in both the paper and poster competitions; however an award in the paper competition may disqualify the author from an award in the poster competition.


    • There are no limits on the number of participants.
