Poster Presentation Preparation Information

This page provides information for people who are presenting posters at the DOE Hydrogen Program 2024 Annual Merit Review and Peer Evaluation Meeting (AMR).

See a general overview of the review process (applicable to reviewed posters).

Creating Your Poster Presentation

As a poster presenter, you are required to create the following files.

  • A PowerPoint file. For projects funded by DOE’s Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office, this file must be created in PowerPoint following the instructions, format, and guidelines referenced in the applicable presentation template. Content requirements have been slightly modified from the 2023 AMR template, so please take note of the changes.

    Download the applicable presentation template for your project (please follow the template unless instructed otherwise in your invitation letter):

  • An Adobe PDF file of your PowerPoint presentation. Once your PowerPoint presentation is complete, you must follow the instructions and guidelines within the presentation template to create this file. Review your PDF file to confirm that all content from your PowerPoint file was completely captured within the PDF during conversion. The PDF, including the Reviewer-Only slides, will be made available to reviewers in PeerNet, a web-based peer review application, if applicable. A PDF version without Reviewer-Only slides will be available for attendees at the meeting and posted on the Hydrogen Program website after the meeting.

Name your poster presentation files using the name provided to you in your original notification email: (project#)_(PI last name)_2024_p.

Do not include any information that is proprietary or confidential in your presentation. Make sure any material used from subcontractors and project partners meets this criterion. If copyrighted material is included, it must be used with permission and attributed properly. Please submit the written copyright permission along with the poster presentation.

Submitting Your Poster Presentation

Submit your poster presentation to the Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) AMR team by March 8, 2024.

To submit your presentation, please use this Google Form to upload the PowerPoint and PDF files for your presentation: DOE Hydrogen Program 2024 AMR Presentation Submission Form.

If you have any issues with the submission form, request an alternative delivery option by sending an email to ORAU at [email protected].

ORAU will review your poster presentation after it is submitted and will contact you if changes are needed. If you plan to include review cycles with the DOE manager overseeing your project, please make sure those review cycles are completed before submitting the presentation to ORAU.

Schedule Overview

Presenters will be notified via email with the time(s) and date(s) of their poster presentation(s). In addition, the agenda page provides the time and date for each poster session. Please refer to it frequently as information is subject to change.

At the Review Meeting

All poster presenters should plan to attend the 2024 AMR in person or to send a designated presenter if the invited principal investigator cannot attend. If you have any questions about the process or have any special needs, please contact ORAU at [email protected].

You will be provided with a poster board on which to mount your poster presentation at the meeting. Each poster board is eight feet wide and four feet tall with a felt surface that accepts push pins or Velcro. Push pins will be provided for your convenience.

You must bring a printed copy of your poster presentation with you to the AMR in one of these formats for hanging on your poster board:

  • A large, one-sided poster sheet
  • Individual slides on letter-size paper.

If your poster presentation is being reviewed, you are strongly encouraged to create a large, one-sided poster sheet for presentation at the meeting. For either option, you must still submit your poster in PDF and PowerPoint slide formats according to the presentation instructions.

After the Review Meeting

All presentations (oral and poster) will be posted in the AMR presentation database on the Hydrogen Program website after the AMR. A report containing the results of the program and project reviews will be published on the Hydrogen Program website several months following the AMR.
