POSTER DESIGN

  • The title of your poster should be at the top, in large letters to get the viewer's attention.
  • Posters should then display the abstract number, authors, institutions of origin and contact details  (contact details are optional).
  • Your goal is to convey a clear message and support it with a compelling combination of images and short blocks of text.
  • All text on the objectives, methods, results and conclusions need to be kept brief.
  • Every element, including graphs and tables must be easily readable from a distance of 2 metres.
  • Consider how best to use colour, photos, charts and pictures to enhance the information.
  • Bring your poster already printed. There will be no printing services available on site.
