Poster Guidelines

Guidelines for Poster Presentations


Posters may be any size, but must be self-supporting. They will be displayed on easels (up to three) provided by the SCA. Each easel can hold a display board up to 36 inches high by 48 inches wide. Text should be limited to four or five pages of double-spaced, 16-20 point text. The SCA Business Office will have some display boards available, but availability cannot be guaranteed. Electricity is not available.


For optimal visibility, each poster display should include a sign giving the title and author information. The sign should be 6 inches in height and up to 48 inches long, and be mounted at the top of the board.

Author’s Presence

How much time presenters spend with their posters is up to them. Since one of the clear advantages of poster presentations is sustained interaction with the “audience,” SCA urges presenters to spend as much of the two hours as possible with their material.
