Poster Definition:

A poster is a visual display of the scientific abstract accepted to the conference. The focus is on a study, hypothesis or procedure/technique.

Size:

All information is confined to a 100 cm (vertical) by 80 cm (horizontal) tack board.

Content:

Only narrative material, photographs and drawings are used. It is the presenter’s responsibility to provide handout material if deemed necessary. Posters are attached with Double Sided Tape.

Supplemental Materials:

Supplemental materials are optional. If you decide to supply supplemental handouts to poster viewers, please bring between 75-125 copies

Packing:

If your exhibit is made on paper or construction paper, the component parts can usually be rolled up and placed in a cardboard mailing tube (diameter 4 inches).

Guidelines

  1. It is important to have the exhibit completely assembled so it takes minimal time to set-up on-site.
  2. Make the exhibit as self explanatory as possible.
  3. Draw a plan, keeping the size and number of illustrations in mind.
  4. Post the information sequentially beginning with the main idea, problem, method, etc.
  5. Keep illustrations simple: Use charts, graphs, drawings and pictures to create interest and visually explain a point. . (Hint: Black and white photos of x-rays are often effective; using actual x-rays is not effective because they are difficult to see.)
  6. A commercial printer can produce major titles, or you can use transferable letters that can be purchased from any art supply store.
  1. For narrative, use a bulletin typewriter or large print such as 24 point.
  2. To draw attention to specific area, use colored paper, markers, pins, or colored tape.
  3. Keep captions on all written material to a minimum.
  4. Certain color combinations provide better contrast: Black on yellow; Red on white; Black on orange; Green on white; or Green on black.
  5. Don’t make your display overly ornate - this will distract from the impact of your information.
  6. Do not remove the identifying number on each board.
