Guidance for CSVHFS Posters and Tabletop Display Authors

The 2017 Central States VHF Society will provide the opportunity members of the VHF/UHF/Microwave and Weak Signal Communities to show off topics of interest such including  experimentation, design and construction, testing, etc. via posterboard presentations and tabletop displays.  Posters and table-top displays will be available for viewing all day Friday and Saturday of the event.


Topics similar to those being sought for Proceedings articles and presentations, both technical and non-technical in nature, are being solicited for the Conference's posterboard presentations and tabletop displays.  


Tri-Fold poster boards, such as those used by students for science fair projects, are available at most office supply stores.  The recommended board is “Elmer’s Display Board Plus,” which is 36″ high x 48″ wide. Some stores may not carry Elmer’s but they should carry an equivalent.

Posters will be displayed on table-tops. This permits any show-and-tell to be placed in front of the poster to enhance the presentation. If your poster will not stand by itself on a table, you will need to provide an easel.

Posters will be viewed from a much larger distance than a printed page, so you need to use larger than usual type sizes. Consider making text no smaller than 14 pt and titles/headings no less than 24 pt. Pictures, maps, and charts are naturals for Posters. So are physical things that illustrate what your Poster is talking about.

Physical items for display as show-and-tell may be included with the poster or table-top display.  While the room containing posters and table-top displays will be monitored by even staff, CSVHFS, the Conference sponsoring organization, or venue cannot be held responsible for loss or damage.
