The instructions below are intended to serve as guidelines for the Poster Session at the Third International Conference of the Sustainable Consumption Research and Action Initiative (SCORAI). If you have any other questions regarding your poster, please feel free to email Dr. Emily Huddart Kennedy at If you have questions about the venue, please contact Annie Saugstrup at 

General Guidelines

Plan to set up your display as early as possible on June 28 in the room marked on the map below. The posters will be available for viewing throughout the conference but you should plan to be at your poster to answer questions during the designated poster session (12:15-1:15, Friday June 29).


Closer to the start of the conference, poster presenters will receive an email with the poster program. The program will indicate your posterís number and the approximate location of your poster in the room. This program will also be present in the room designated for posters. The presenting author should be available throughout the poster session and be prepared to have his or her display removed by the end of the conference. Your poster will be affixed to a poster wall. Only Velcro fasteners may be used on the poster walls. Make sure to get the fasteners from a conference assistant. 

Your poster can be printed on matte or glossy paper but should not be mounted on poster board or cardboard as this may be difficult to keep in position on the poster surface. The poster should be as self-explanatory as possible so that your main job during the poster session is to supplement the information it contains. When designing your poster, keep in mind that all your text and illustrations will be viewed from a distance of more than three feet. All lettering should be at least 2/3" (1.7 cm) tall, and 1" (2.5 cm) tall for more important information. Figures and tables should be kept as simple as possible so that viewers can readily take away the main message. A brief, large-type heading of no more than one or two lines should be provided above each figure or table, with more detailed information added in smaller type below. Be sure to include the title of your poster and your name and affiliation at the top of the poster. In order to fit on the mounting surface, your poster should not be any larger than 99.3 cm x 69.4 cm.
