All other poster presenters should not set up their posters until Tuesday.

Tips for creating a successful poster

Poster material should be large enough to view from a distance of 1m.

Each poster should include a section at the top containing title of poster, name(s) of author(s) and their affiliation(s). Posters should be sized suitable to fit on the poster board. E.g. AO size (841 x 1189 mm)


The title should be the same as in the submitted abstract. The size of the characters for the title should be at least 2.5cm high.


The allocated poster board space is 1.8m high and 1m wide. The boards are made of a material to which Velcro tape or pins can adhere.


The poster should be easily readable at a distance of one to two metres. Use UPPER and lower case for general content as the use of all-capital text is difficult to read. Avoid using a mixture of type/font styles.
Avoid using too much text. Posters are well suited to illustrations, drawings, figures, charts, maps, graphs, etc and the over-use of text renders them inoperable.
Handouts can be very useful. If you wish to supply handouts you must provide a holder that can be attached to the board (no handouts to be placed on the floor for safety reasons).
