SUBMISSION GUIDELINES – POSTERS

Poster presentations will be on display in a designated area for the duration of the conference.

All presenters are obliged to install and remove their own poster in the designated area

Guidelines for Preparation of Posters we require you use A1 PowerPoint (594 x 841 mm):

  • Size: The template is A1 portrait (594 x 841 mm), portrait (vertical) format.
  • Lettering for the title should be large (at least 70-point font).
  • The body text / font size should be between 24 and 32 points. Arial, Helvetica or equivalent.
  • Keep body text left-aligned, do not justify text
  • Title: Must be clearly displayed and must match the title of the poster submitted.
  • Structure: Poster must have a clear structure and format.
  • Keep the text brief. Blocks of text should not exceed three paragraphs (viewers won’t bother to read more than that). Use text to

 (a) introduce the study (what hypothesis was tested or what problem was investigated? why was the study worth doing?),

(b) explain visuals and direct viewers’ attention to significant data trends and relationships portrayed in the visuals,

(c) state and explain the interpretations that follow from the data. In many cases, conclusions can be summarized in a bullet-point list.

  • Depending upon the stage or nature of your project, the text could also include sections on future research plans or questions for discussion with viewers.
  • Cite and reference any sources of information other than your own, just as you would do with a research paper. Ask your professor about the particular citation system that you should use (every discipline uses slightly different styles). The “References Cited” is placed at the end of the poster.
  • Images: Use of colour images and diagrams is recommended for increased visual impact.
