2020 ASBMB Annual Meeting

Undergraduate Student Poster Competition

The Undergraduate Poster Competition will take place from 12–4:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 4. Present your research among peers and gain valuable practice for your poster presentation during the main meeting. Graduate program recruiters will have informational tables open during the competition.

Poster board dimensions

Each board face measures 3’8” high/tall by 7’6” wide/long (landscape orientation). Your poster will likely be smaller than the maximum dimensions, but may not exceed these dimensions.

Poster competition rules

  • Posters must remain on display from 12–4:30 p.m.
  • Participants must be present for the entirety of the scheduled competition and actively participate.
  • Poster manning times and poster board numbers are assigned at check-in the day of the competition.
  • Participants should consider airline schedules to ensure an on-time arrival for the poster competition.

Onsite verification of undergraduate student status is required to pick up your badge. A student ID card or letter signed by your department head or research adviser is required.
