Presenters with posters should make them no larger than 76×102 cm (30″×40″). Presenters will be sharing 2.4×1.2 m (8′×4′) poster boards. Posters will be displayed for the specific day they are assigned, based on the poster program. During check in every morning, poster presenters will be instructed where to hang their posters, and hanging paraphernalia will be provided. Presenters are expected to collect their posters at the conclusion of the day's events. Any left over posters will be recycled.

The poster must cover the material cited in the abstract and should adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Place the title of your paper and your paper number prominently at the top of the poster board to allow viewers to identify your paper. Indicate ① The abstract's presentation number, ② title, and ③ Authors' names
  • Highlight the authors' names, email addresses, and address information in case the viewer is interested in contacting you for more information.
  • Prepare all diagrams or charts neatly and legibly beforehand in a size sufficient to be read at a distance of 2 meters (6½′). Paragraph and figure caption text should be at least 24-point font (0.9 cm height) and headers at least 36 point font (1.2 cm height).
  • Use different colors and textures/symbols for each line or bar contained in your graph or chart. A serif font (e.g., Times) is often easier for reading main text, and a sans-serif font (e.g., Helvetica Neue) for headers and figure labels.
  • Organize the paper on the poster board so it is clear, orderly, and self-explanatory. You have complete freedom in displaying your information in figures, tables, text, photographs, etc. Use squares, rectangles, circles, etc., to group similar ideas. Avoid cluttering your poster with too much text. Label different elements as numerically or alphabetically (1, 2, 3; A, B, C; etc.) making it easier for a viewer to follow your display.
  • Include the background of your research followed by results and conclusions. A successful poster presentation depends on how well you convey information to an interested audience.
