General Guidelines for Poster Production

A poster should be self-contained and self-explanatory, allowing different viewers to proceed on theirown while the author is free to supplement or discuss particular points raised in inquiry. Presentations shouldbe kept simple and clear and a mixture of text and graphics is recommended.

Poster Layout

Posters should be printed on one poster sheet (not as individual pages) and can be plasticlaminated if desired.Use matt finish rather than glossy paper. Posters can be designed in either landscape or portrait arrangement,although landscape will fit better on the poster boards. Arrange materials in columns rather than rows. Includeyour abstract title and authors names and affiliations at the top. An introduction should be placed at the upperleft and a conclusion at the lower right. The abstract does not need to be presented.


Each figure or table should have a heading of one or two lines. Additional essential information shouldbe provided below in a legend. Photographs should have good contrast, sharp focus and, if necessary, an indicationof scale.


Minimize narrative. Use large type in short, separated paragraphs. Numbered or bulleted lists are effectiveways to convey a series of points. Do not set entire paragraphs in uppercase or boldface type.

Titles and Fonts

Titles and captions should be short and easy to read, in a sans serif font for preference. Headings shouldbe a minimum of 50 point size whereas, 25 point size is suitable for text.
