GUIDELINES & TIPS FOR PREPARING THE POSTER


DIMENSIONS

Your poster itself should use a horizontal format, not larger than 4 ft. by 6 ft. 

 

MATERIALS

The poster may be mounted on rigid material or un-mounted sheets that can be pinned directly to the poster board. You will need to bring your own thumbtacks to affix this poster space. 

 

HEADER & TITLE

The poster header should include the title of the presentation, the authors and their institution affiliation.

The exact title of the poster should be centered at the top of the abstract page in boldface up to 15 pt. maximum size.

  • Keep text and figure legends short, but do not omit them.
  • Remember that illustrations must be readable from distances of three feet or more. Use Bold Type to ensure legibility. If you use smaller type, it will be extremely difficult to read the poster in its original or photo-reproduction form.
  • Charts, drawings, and illustrations should be similar to those you would use in making slides. Try to keep everything as simple as possible. Captions should be brief; labels few but clear. Simple use of color can add emphasis effectively.
  • Your poster should be self-explanatory. The viewer should be able to follow the main theme easily.
  • Do not write or paint on the poster board.

HANDOUTS

It is helpful to your colleagues to provide a handout of your poster that includes your full contact information.  Bringing mailing labels is also beneficial should you run out of handouts.  Colleagues can then write their name and address on these labels so that you can send handouts after the meeting.
