Poster presenter guidelines


Poster Guidelines for Presenters

  • The maximum poster dimensions of 48” width x 36” height (approx. 120 cm width x 90 cm height) must be respected.

  • Material to affix your poster to the display boards will be provided to you by the conference and will already be on your poster board when you arrive.

  • Limit the amount of printed material. Posters should not be elaborate, nor need they be expensive. If supplemental material is desired, you may hand out information sheets to those viewing your poster.

  • Each poster must have a top label indicating the title of the poster, the names of the authors and their affiliations. The size of the characters for the title should be at least 0.8” (2 cm) high.

  • Poster text should be large enough to be read from a distance of 3’ (1 meter) or more. This is possible using font size 30-50.

  • Keep illustrative material simple. Charts, drawings and illustrations are usually similar to those used in making slides. Simple use of color is effective for adding emphasis.

  • Simple "Introduction" and "Conclusion" sections are usually helpful. When feasible, use graphs for demonstrating qualitative relationships, use tables for precise numerical values.

  • Do not fold posters; try to carry them in an appropriate container. Do not mail poster presentations in advance, bring them with you to the Congress. Please note that there will be no audio-visual equipment in the poster area.

  • Conference staff will be present to assist you.

  • Poster numbers will be provided by the Congress and will be available on your poster board.
