Information for Poster Presenters

We are delighted by your participation in the poster session, which is an integral part of CELS and is always well attended. At CELS, it is the strong tradition that the poster session includes scholars of all experience levels, including some of the most senior ELS scholars. This year, the poster session will be held on Friday, October 13th in conjunction with the 2017 CELS reception. The poster session offers a great way to quickly communicate the basics of your project to a wide audience.

Here are a few points to keep in mind:

Poster files can be designed to the desired poster size with high-resolution images or charts embedded in a PowerPoint slide. Design should be set for a poster 36" x 48". The posters will be set on an easel and should be readable from several feet away. The final file must be submitted as a PDF. Other files such as PowerPoint or Adobe Illustrator will not be accepted. Please email cels2017@cornell.edu if you have any questions.


The PDF of your poster should be sent to cels2017@cornell.edu by Thursday, October 5 th at 12 NOON (Eastern Time) in order for it to be printed and mounted in advance of the conference. Please include "CELS Poster" in the subject line. Cornell Law School will pay the cost of all posters received by the deadline.

If you miss the deadline, you will be responsible for printing and mounting the poster yourself.
Please email cels2017@cornell.edu to let us know by Wednesday, October 4th if you will not be able to submit your poster by the deadline. Include "CELS Poster" in the subject line. When you check in at the conference, please give your poster to conference staff at the registration table.
