Poster Presentations

Production & Presentation Guidelines

Posters must be produced as a single-sheet exposition that can fit on the bulletin board provided by INFORMS. The bulletin board measures 90” wide by 43” tall. We recommend a poster size of 72” wide by 36” tall or 48” wide by 36” tall. However, other sizes are acceptable as long as they do not exceed the bulletin board dimensions of 90” wide by 43” tall.

We strongly recommend that you have your poster printed locally or by an online site before you travel to the meeting, rather than attempt to have it printed onsite in Orlando.
