- Please submit your poster files by March 16, 2018 at the latest to allow for adequate time for printing. March 16 is just one week before the start of RCAW. 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.
- Posters printed after March 16th are not guaranteed to be printed in time for the conference.
- 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.
