Poster Guidelines

Guidelines for Preparing Your Printed Poster

  1. The poster board surface area is 120 cm wide by 180 cm high (471⁄4” W x 7055⁄64” H).
  2. Poster shall be affixed to the display boards with Velcro and/or pins and/or blue tack. Mounting materials will be available onsite.
  3. In preparing your poster for the session, we suggest that you limit the amount of printed material to the least possible. 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.
  4. Poster material must be prepared in advance and text should be large enough to be read from a distance of 1 metre (3.25') or more.
  5. Each poster must have a top label indicating the title of the paper, the names of the authors and their affiliations. The size of the characters for the title should be at least one inch high.
  6. Keep illustrative material simple. Charts, drawings and illustrations are usually similar to those used in making slides – preferably with bolder, heavier figures. Simple use of color is effective for adding emphasis. Mount illustration on fairly stiff paper – but NOT heavy cardboard.
  7. Simple "Introduction" and "Conclusion" sections are usually helpful. When feasible, use graphs for demonstrating qualitative relationships, use tables for precise numerical values. Photographs should be in a matte finish, not glossy.
  8. Do not fold posters; try to carry them in an appropriate container. Do not mail poster presentations in advance, they may not arrive in time; bring them with you to the Meeting.
  9. Please note that there will be no audio-visual equipment in the poster area.
