- Please submit your poster files by March 16, 2015 at the latest to allow for adequate time for printing. Consider submitting your poster for printing in early March because RCAW 2015 is one week after Spring Break this year. Printed posters can be picked up in Austin 103. NOTE: Please enter RCAW Poster in the Additional Information box on the form to avoid a charge for the poster.
- Depending on the final dimensions for a printed poster, you may need to trim your poster. Posters are printed on paper that is 42 inches wide, so you will need to trim about six inches to achieve the 3ft by 4ft dimension.
- Please contact the Walk-In Help Desk (Austin 103) if you have poster questions. 252-328-5401 (8:00 AM to 6:00 PM)
