Poster preparation guidelines:

  • The poster must contain the following elements: title, author(s) and institution (positioned at the top); a brief introduction, methods, results and conclusions (positioned further down the poster).
  • A photograph at the top right hand corner will help the audience to identify the presenting author(s).
  • A poster is not a vehicle to present the details normally contained in a scientific paper. Make certain that the message is clear and simple. The text should be kept to a minimum, and presentations, e.g., graphs, histograms and photographs are strongly encouraged.
  • Appropriate use of colour improves the readability.
  • Lettering: Guidelines for minimum font sizes (letter height) are as follows:
    • Poster title: 20 mm
    • Author(s), institution: 13 mm
    • Headings: 13 mm
    • Body text: 9 mm
  • The language of the poster should be English.
