Preparation Tips

  • Your poster presentation should be educational, scientific and balanced. Be prepared to answer or discuss topic(s) that an attendee may have regarding your abstract
  • Keep your text to a minimum. Your emphasis should be on graphics – charts, graphs, and photos. Save what you might put into text for handouts
  • Individual handouts relative to poster presentations are popular and encouraged
  • The illustrations should be easy to understand, but they need not be "arty"
  • Avoid crowded and cluttered posters; they are difficult to read and are often disregarded
  • Characters and figure legends should be readable from approximately 1.8 m away
  • Lettered material should have appropriately heavy lettering; font size at least 20
  • A large-character title banner, if possible, should go across the top of the poster, as a heading for the poster, font size at least 44. This banner should state the title (by upper case letters), the name(s), affiliation(s) and e-mail(s) of the author(s)
