Please prepare a Cover Page using this template and append it to your pdf file before uploading.
As author of the paper, you retain all copyrights. It is recommended that you include a copyright statement at the bottom of the cover page, e.g.
Copyright 2020 by [author(s)]. All rights reserved. Readers may make verbatim copies of this document for non-commercial purposes by any means, provided this copyright notice appears on all such copies.
Posters must be uploaded by Monday, June 1 at 11:59 pm CST. AAEA will upload your poster to AgEcon after this deadline. For any questions regarding this process, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To help you develop your poster, we have provided a few suggestions below. This is meant as a general overview to get you started.
The maximum poster size is 4 feet high by 8 feet long, minus a 1-inch margin. Your actual poster may be smaller. Pushpins will be provided for you to hang your poster.
Replace text with graphical elements as much as possible (e.g., photographs or maps of study's location, other visual aids to convey key results), but do not forget your complete contact information. Consider including a photograph of the presenting author.
Clearly indicate your key message. Avoid clutter and unnecessary detail. Don't fight the reader's gravity-pull from top to bottom and left to right. Remember graphical elements, such as balance, symmetry, rhythm, repetition, and change.
Any text in your poster should be readable from 6 feet away, including text in figures. This means no text should be smaller than a 20-point font. The title should be much larger and readable from a distance (12 feet or more).
Use fonts without serif, but bold. Use dark letters on light backgrounds. Use color carefully; very bright colors can easily fatigue the reader. Stick to a theme of 2-3 colors.
Below you will find a few posters that were displayed at the 2013 Joint Annual Meeting. They are all great examples of how to communicate information in an effective and visually interesting way.
