Optometry students, residents, clinicians, educators, and researchers are all cordially invited to participate in the 2013 EastWest Eye Conference Poster Session.

Guidelines for Preparing Clinical Posters
Please follow these guidelines carefully to have your poster submission considered for presentation at the 2013 EastWest Eye Conference.
Each case will be presented on one 4’ by 8’ horizontal corkboard. The presenter will be responsible for setting up the poster by 11:00 a.m. on Friday, October 4. Please bring enough tacks to hang your poster. Posters can either be individual panels mounted on heavy poster board or large roll-up heavy poster paper (laminated is acceptable). Posters consisting of unmounted 8.5”x 11” separate papers are not allowed.
The title, name of presenter(s), and affiliated institution(s) should be at the top of the poster. Text, results of testing, figures, graphs, photographs, fluorescein angiography, visual fields, amsler grids, lab and radiology reports, etc, and discussion/literature review should all be displayed in a logical and self-explanatory manner. A place for comments or handouts can also be incorporated in the poster’s design. Bulleted lists are easier for the reader to navigate than lengthy paragraphs.
NOTE: A residency director, faculty member, or previous poster presenter is a valuable resource in preparing an educational poster.
Posters will be on display from 11:00 a.m. Friday, October 4, until 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 5. The presenter must be available to discuss the poster Saturday, October 5, from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.
Posters must be removed from the convention center by 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 5.
