Conference Poster Presentations: 

Guidelines

Size for posters should be 4.0 feet high by 3.0 feet wide.

Poster presentation recommendations:

  1. The poster should present the title, the author(s), affiliation(s), and a description of the research, along with highlighting the major elements covered in the abstract.
  2. Minimize detail and try to use simple statements. Keep it short and easy to read.
  3. Remember that pictures, tables, and figures are key to any poster display.
  4. If possible, use color in your visuals.
  5. Don’t overwhelm the audience with excessive amounts of information. Instead construct a poster display that enhances the presentation.
  6. Use a clear structure and layout.
  7. Your poster title should be easily readable from a distance of 3-4 meters.  Include author(s), name(s) and address(es).
  8. We recommend the following sections on the poster: Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Tables, Figures, Results, and Conclusions.
