General Advice For First Time Presenters

  • The message that your poster contains should be clear and understandable without the requirement of oral explanation. Information 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.
  • Use pictures, symbols and colour. Figure legends are essential and should be short but informative. Each graph should have a short heading. For visual effect, we recommend that graphs be no smaller than 12cm x 18cm.
  • A matte finish on photographs gives better visibility. 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.
  • Please ensure your poster is professionally printed and is strong. Consider printing on fabric as this will save on freight costs and provide ease of transportation.
  • Handouts can be very useful, but please note that these cannot be placed on the floor for safety reasons. If handouts or poster packaging is found on the floor the Conference Secretariat will remove it. If you wish to supply handouts you must make suitable arrangements.
