2010 ARCSA Conference
Poster Session Guidelines

For those like your friendly scribe who did not know, Wikipedia defines a "Poster Session" as the presentation of research information by an individual or representatives of research teams at a congress or conference with an academic or professional focus. ARCSA will offer such an opportunity Sunday through Wednesday of the conference. Posters will be displayed in the middle of the vendor area in the 3rd floor Ballroom, to attract interest and stimulate rainwater-harvesting converstations.

Final set-up will be Monday at noon before the conference starts.

Here are three suggested categories (and you creative folks will no doubt expand on this list):

Technical/Science Based
4’x3’ landscape layout using a science format to study RWH with universal standards. Click here for Swarthmore College's Poster Session guide.

Graphic/Event Based
3’x4’ portrait layout using an artistic format to portray a message using this year’s conference date and location. Click here for Wikipedia's guide to Poster Sessions.
Case Study/Presentation Based
4’x3’ landscape layout showing an existing project with descriptions and photographs and location of the project. Submittal must be made by someone directly associated with the case study.

These examples are suggestions and one need not select a category to participate. Make it informative and follow poster presentation convention. It must be on a 4’x3’ board-portrait or landscape. Submittal is limited to conference attendees only. Abstracts for posters should be 300 words or less, and include title, author(s), author(s) affiliation, author(s) email, and abstract text. Submit your abstract via email to Tisha Mackey ( Abstracts are due by September 17th. Acceptance and rejection notices will be issued by email on September 22nd. Poster presentations will be limited to a total of 30.

Posters may be in any "hard copy” format. They will need to be printed before the conference without any mounting. Push pins, or other method for display, will be provided. The posters are also requested to be electronically submitted in PDF format, or similar graphic file, and may be published online after the conference.
Entries should be removed Wednesday morning before noon. Any poster left after noon will be recycled.
