Poster Size and Display
- Please limit your poster size to 32″x 44″ which can be either portrait or landscape; each presenter will have a space for their poster, which will provide a place to hang the poster and other information such as handouts and category headings. Larger sizes will NOT be accommodated without prior arrangement.
- Presenters are required to assemble and disassemble their own poster; you will be advised when to do so.
- We will provide rigid poster backing for each presenter to hang their poster.
Poster Format and Design Tips
- Poster headings should include a title, author’s name, affiliation, and contact.
- Titles should be > 60 point font and have surrounding space for clarity.
- Use Arial or San-Serif for titles and headings for clarity and readability.
- Use Times Roman or another serif font for the main body text ( > 24 point font) so it is legible from at least six feet away.
- Use 24-26 point font size for chart axis titles, to match the text.
- Choose figures over tables whenever possible.
- Avoid too much information in text and tables; summarize using bullets and multiple smaller tables.
- Pick colors that blend or coordinate well with one another.
- Text color should contrast well against its background.
- Images and graphics should be large in size and of high quality.
- Put captions under all graphics and credit photos when possible.
- Consider symmetry when laying out your poster, try to balance elements like text boxes, images, etc, so they flow and look pleasing.
- Seek peer review for your poster, for content, design, and readability.
- KEEP IT SIMPLE- Limit yourself to one topic or hypothesis.
