Some suggestions & tips

  • Place the title of your paper prominently at the top of the poster to allow viewers to easily identify your paper
  • Indicate the authors’ names and address information in order to allow interested viewers to contact you for more information.
  • Prepare all diagrams or charts neatly and legibly beforehand, in a size sufficient to be read at a distance of 1.5-2.0 metres. The type is recommended to be 2.5 cm high.
  • Use creativity by using different font sizes and styles, perhaps even colour and double-space all text. Use different colours or textures for each line or bars contained in your graph or chart.
  • Organize the poster in a way that it is clear, orderly, and self explanatory. The poster must cover the same content as the abstract.
  • Label different elements as 1, 2, 3, or A, B, C. This will make 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 the information to an interested audience.
