POSTER Presentations

#nbsp; 1. A poster is a visual presentation of information and should be designed as such - do not simply reproduce your written paper in poster format.
#nbsp; 2. It should be understandable to the reader without verbal comment - someone might look at it while you are talking to another delegate.
#nbsp; 3. Remember, you are trying to catch the delegate's attention.
    
Papers that are intended to be presented during POSTER SESSION have to be prepared by the author/s as a poster with relevant charts, drawings, photos, etc in color (or black and white) in maximum format A1/Portrait.

Useful Tips


Poster Guides

  • SIZE


    The size of the poster material must be max A1 / layout PORTRAIT. It is recommended to keep this format in order to fit the Poster stands
  • TITLE


    Title of the poster must be written on top (in bold, capital letters) including names of the authors and their titles and institutions - all centered
  • CHART


    Drawings, photos and lettering should be large and clear enough so that the poster is readable from a distance of 1 or 2 m

  • COLOR


    Do not use paper background and other dark colored watermarks! It would make your poster less readable

DESIGN SUGGESTIONS
  • Use all the space at your disposal, but do not cram in the content - white space is an important part of the layout, and  good use of  it can make a poster elegant and arresting.
  • Use colour sparingly - limited use of a few colours is more striking than a 'rainbow' approach. Think about why you are using colour; it is especially useful for emphasis and differentiation.
  • Avoid colour combinations that clash (e.g. red on blue) or cause problems for people with colour-blindness (e.g. red and green in proximity).
  • It is recommended not to use color background.  Use white or muted colour background (e.g. pastel shades, semi-transparent)
  • The flow of information should be clear from the layout; if you have to use arrows to indicate the flow, the content could probably be arranged better.
  • Clearly label diagrams/drawings and provide references to them in the text where necessary.
  • The title text should be readable from 4 metres away - at least 40-point text.
  • The body text should be readable from 2 metres away - at least 20-point text
  • Choose a clear font with large inner space. Good examples are Arial, Verdana, Georgia or Helvetica.
  • Keep the word count as low as possible.

POSTER CONTENT
  • Make sure paper title and author's name are prominent and eye-catching
  • It is recommended in your document ‘header’ to insert the conference name and logo – it would be a nice complimentary gesture to the organizers
  • Tell a story: provide clear flow of information from introduction to conclusion
  • Focus on your major findings - a common fault is to try to cover too much. Few delegates are going to read everything on your poster, so get to the point.
  • Use graphs, tables, diagrams and images where appropriate. Use boxes to isolate and emphasize specific points.
