Poster preparation

  • Place the title of your paper clearly 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 centimetres high. For example, use different colours 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. The success of a poster presentation is contingent on how well you convey the information to an interested audience.
