Guidelines for Poster Presentations

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

TITLE
The title should be the same as in the submitted abstract.

SIZE
The poster must be A0 size (A0 size is 841mm x 1189mm) in portrait orientation.

LETTERING
The poster should be easily readable at a distance of two metres. Use UPPER and lower case for general content as the use of all-capital text is difficult to read. Avoid using a mixture of type/font styles.

TITLE
Include the title of your presentation at the top of the poster. Characters should be a minimum of 48 point font size. Your name, School or Centre should also be displayed on the poster. HEADINGS 48 to 60 point font size is recommended for headings.

CONTENT
24 to 32 font size single spaced is recommended. The text should be concise and easy to read.

The message that your poster contains should be clear and understandable without the requirement of oral explanation. If relevant, methods should be presented simply and concisely.

After the title, the two most important panels are the Introduction and the Conclusion. On the basis of these two panels, a reader will decide whether to consider the poster details and perhaps talk to the presenter. These panels need to be very simple, concise and visually attractive. Results should be presented graphically if possible. Avoid large tables of data.

Results should be in line with those originally submitted in your abstract.

Use pictures, symbols and colour. Figure legends are essential and should be short but informative. If using graphs, they should have a short heading.

For visual effect, we recommend that graphs be no smaller than 12cm x 18cm. Photographs should be no smaller than 12cm x 18cm. Use the space to attract your audience for discussion, not to present complex details of methods and results.

The following websites provide some useful information on preparing effective posters for conference presentation.
