Guidelines for Preparing a Poster Presentation
Presenters will interact with attendees while standing next to their Poster Presentation. Attendees at Poster Presentations will stroll by looking for topics of interest. Presenters need to attract attention with a good topic and a visually interesting presentation. Organization and clarity are critical. A poster presentation should attract people’s interest as they walk by and then be easily reviewed to stimulate a one-to-one discussion with the presenters. The goal is to encourage informed discussion about your research. The poster should be easily readable from 1.5 meters (4 feet) away. One or more of the authors must be present during the session. If one author represents a team who wrote the paper, that person should be capable of responding to questions concerning all aspects of the presentation.
Although we will provide you with tools (adhesive tape, etc.) for hanging your poster, it is recommended that you bring your own materials as a back up.
We will not be able to help with the printing of posters.
There will also be other authors with their poster presentations in the gallery. You will have one poster wall available for your presentation and the dimensions is 100 cm x 210 cm. For that reason, we encourage you to avoid exceeding the dimensions of a Din A0 (84 cm width and 120 cm high).
Type of letter, font and size:
We recommend using the following font and font size:
Type of font: Arial
– Title: At least 36 points.
– Headings: 30 points or more.
– Text: At least 24 points.
When choosing a background to frame your visual presentation, remember that neutral or greyish colours will be easier to see than a bright colour. Space your information proportionately. A suggestion is to divide your presentation either horizontally or vertically into three or four sections, and place materials within those sections. We recommend you to use illustrations, schemas and graphics so that your presentation can be more attractive.
