Guidelines for Preparation of Posters

Guidelines: Poster Preparation and Display


Display/Presentation of Posters
 
All posters will be displayed for the entire duration of the conference. 
 
To permit maximum viewing of posters, authors are encouraged to mount their posters as soon as possible upon arrival at the conference. Please find the poster board bearing your paper number and affix your poster to it. Should you require assistance, please see the registration desk. 
 
As far as possible authors are requested to be present at their posters during the coffee breaks for discussion with interested participants.


Preparation of Posters

The poster should be a visual presentation of your submitted abstract. Posters should meet the following criteria:

Poster Size
All posters should be in portrait format and size: A0 (1189 mm high and 841 mm wide).

Lettering
The poster should be easily readable at a distance of two metres. Use UPPER and lower case for general content, as all-capital text is difficult to read. Avoid using mixtures of type/font styles. Left justify text, as it is easier on the eyes of the reader.
Graphs/Photographs
For visual effect, it is recommended that graphs be no smaller than 120 mm × 180 mm.
