Poster Template: You are welcome to download this slide template to format your poster. Using this template is not required.

Please name your poster PDF file (using the team lead’s name):

Can I make changes to my PDF file? Since all exhibitors will be printing their own poster, you are welcome to make changes or edits to your poster file after you submit. Please make sure you leave enough time to get your poster printed before the event.

Where can I get my poster printed? DSI suggests Columbia Print, Village Copier, or Ivy League Stationers.

The application *requires* the following items:
