This is a professional, technical meeting, so please dress appropriately and respectfully for the event. Please note that only ONE presenter per poster gets into the annual meeting for free. If you are co-presenting the same poster, one of you will have to pay the $30 registration fee! (Sorry...)

1. To increase your chances of winning a poster award (certificate and $$), we include poster summary information in the proceedings. (NOT AN ABSTRACT, JUST INFORMATION)

Please email your poster information to Melanie-Claire and add your LAST NAME FIRST to the subject line -- BY SEPTEMBER 6th!



  • It is fine for you to present a poster previously presented at another meeting or site visit as long as it has to do with recent and original work performed at the CNF. But whether creating a new poster or presenting a 'used' poster, please be sure to include CNF's logo and read the instructions and recommendations below.
  • Posters will be numbered and you'll need to put your poster up TO THE RIGHT of your number. Melanie-Claire will let you know your number well ahead of time.
  • Poster set-up is from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. -- Please arrive ON TIME and remember to find your assigned number!! (Not early!!! Just on time.....)
  • Poster presenters should be available to answer questions during the entire session, so stay with your poster as much as possible between 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. We know you may want to take a look at other research, but please donít completely abandon your poster to do so. 
  • The layout of your poster is left up to your discretion, although we have some recommendations:
    • 1. Please display the CNF logo somewhere on your poster. Find the logo at: http://www.cnf.cornell.edu/cnf5_publication.html
    • 2. Put your title at the top of the poster in large (1" high) letters. Putting the title at the top means people walking by will be able to see what your research is about even if you are already talking to someone else. (In other words, your body won't block people's view of your title...)
    • 3. Also, put your full name, email address and phone number in large type at the top of your poster. This will ensure that interested company recruiters can get back to you. AND for the poster cash awards, judges can figure out who you are!
  • Prepare the poster so that an informed viewer can understand what your research is about without talking to you. This is important because you can only talk to a few people at a time and many more may be evaluating you from afar to figure out whether or not to come closer.
  • BTW, all of the above sounds really obvious, but frankly, you'd be surprised at some of the posters we've seen over the years..... ; )
