Dismantling:

All posters should be taken down by 16:30 on the day of presentation. Posters that have not been taken down by 16:30 will be dismantled and destroyed.   

 

Poster Size:

Poster should be an approximate size of 1 meter (in length) by 1.5 meters (in height), vertical format. This is the size of the usable surface of the display panels. Do NOT exceed the size of the display panel.

 

Please Be Advised:

Upload your Poster file ahead of the deadline if you need to coordinate the audio recording in a timely manner.

 

Requirements:
Please make sure you include your new abstract number that you have received in your abstract notification on your poster.
 

Format:

  • Please make sure you include your new abstract number that you have received in your abstract notification on your ePoster.

  • QR codes are not permitted on posters. 

  • Mounting material to hang your poster will be provided

  • Place a heading that runs the full width of the poster at the top in a large-sized type.

  • The poster should be readable from a distance of 1.5 – 2 meters (4 – 6 feet).

  • The text should be no less than 8 mm (22 point font) and preferably larger.

  • Use a constant font throughout the poster.

  • Use a black and bold type to ensure legibility and let your important points stand out.

  • We suggest that you show the preferred sequence in which your poster should be reviewed; this can be done by using 3 – 5 columns so the eye movement is down the columns.

  • Highlight your main findings. Don’t hide your conclusions, consider putting them at eye level, at the top of the right column or alternatively start with the Conclusions. Otherwise, we suggest that you structure your poster by Introduction, Methods, Results, and Conclusions. State your aims in the end of the introduction.

  • The figures and tables should cover approximately 50% of the poster area.


Other Recommendations:

  • If possible, avoid abbreviations and acronyms, especially in the Conclusion section.

  • Seek simplicity, keep text to a minimum and avoid redundancies.

  • Feel free to provide one or more key references.

  • Prepare a short (< 60 seconds) oral guide through your poster to be offered to those that prefer your words before reading for themselves.

  • Handouts of your abstract/poster are allowed. We encourage you to include your email address on your poster or handout, so anyone interested may contact the abstract author about questions, comments, or future research inquiries.
