Poster Requirements and Recommendations

  • The presentation must cover the material as cited in the abstract.
  • Place the title of your paper and your paper number prominently at the top of the poster board to allow viewers to identify your paper.
  • Highlight the authors’ names and contact information in case the viewer is interested in more information.
  • Prepare diagrams or charts legibly in a size sufficient to be read at a distance of 2 meters.
  • Paragraph and figure captions should be at least in a 24-point font (0.9 cm height) and headers at least in a 36-point font (1.2 cm height). Be creative by using different font sizes, styles, and colors.
  • When working with graphs or charts, use different colors and textures/symbols for each line or bar. A serif font (e.g., Times) is often easier for reading main text, and a non-serif font (e.g., Arial or Helvetica) is more legible for headers and figure labels.
  • Organize the presentation so it is clear, orderly, and self-explanatory.
  • Use squares, rectangles, circles, etc., to group similar ideas. Avoid cluttering your poster with too much text. Label different elements as I, II, III; or 1, 2, 3; or A, B, C; making it easier for a viewer to follow your display.
  • Include the background of your research followed by results and conclusions. A successful poster presentation depends on how well you convey information to an interested audience.
  • Please do not laminate your poster to ensure that it can be recycled.
