Once the abstract is accepted for poster presentation at the conference and the presenting author is registered under the full rate or student registration modes, it is time to prepare the poster presentation.

You are recommended to read the following instructions before preparing your poster presentation for the conference:

  • Display times:
    As each poster will be included in only one session of the Conference Scientific Program, each poster will be exhibited only the whole day assigned to that session. Posters should be set up in the morning of the presentation day and they will not be removed until the end of the day, unless otherwise is stated. Authors are expected to be at their posters when the session is scheduled.

  • Posters identifications and locations:
    Posters will be displayed at the main hall at the conference venue. An identifier, which you will find in the Conference Scientific Program, will be assigned to your poster. A card with your identifier will be posted on each display panel to indicate the location for your poster.

  • Dimensions and attachment: The poster can be up to 1m high x 0.80m wide. We will provide materials for attaching posters.

  • Format: Your poster should be readable from a distance of 2 meters. Suggested font sizes:

    • The title should be capitalized with lettering 2cm high (72 point) at least.

    • Authors and affiliations should be 11mm high (42 point) at least.

    • Text lettering should be 5mm high (18 point) with a line thickness of 1mm at least.

    • Be careful also in your use of colours, some people are red-green colour blind and some colours do not stand out in contrast to others.

  • Content:
    Information should be well organized and concisely presented. Your poster could include the following sections:

    • Title: short and informative.

    • Abstract: again this should be informative. The aim is to put your work into context.

    • Materials and Methods: these have to be short but remember to include them without incomprehensible acronyms etc. Others want to know clearly what you are doing and they might want to use some of the same materials or methods.

    • Results: you are very limited in what you present. Choose the material which best explains what you have found and which can be logically developed to tell your story:

      • Do not put in too much information
      • Do not put in graphs, pictures, tables, etc. which have no explanation.
    • Discussion/ Conclusions: have your results provided an answer to the questions which you originally posed? If not, are there alternative answers?

    Make sure that your material is presented in a logical and clear sequence so that people can read it and understand it. If you wish, you can provide the audience with copies of the poster reduced in size.
