Poster Session

Conference Poster Presentations: Poster presentations give the audience a clear visual of the presenter's work in a simple format. The reasonable size for posters is 2.5-3.0 feet high by 3.5-4 feet wide.

Poster presentation recommendations:

  1. The poster should present the title, the author(s), affiliation(s), and a description of the research, along with highlighting the abstract's major elements.

  2. Minimize detail and try to use simple statements. Keep it short and easy to read.

  3. Remember that pictures, tables, and figures are key to any poster display.

  4. If possible, use color in your visuals.

  5. Don't overwhelm the audience with excessive information. Instead, construct a poster display that enhances the presentation.

  6. At least 50% of the surface area should be used for photos, graphs and diagrams.

  7. Use a clear structure and organized layout.

  8. Use complementary colors, and black or dark blue for text. Too much color can be hard to read!

  9. One or two large, high-quality photographs attract attention.

  10. Your title should be a condensed statement of the main idea of your poster, and the title should be large and clear.

  11. Your poster title should be easily readable from 3-4 meters away.  Include author(s) name(s) and address(es).

  12. We recommend the following sections on the poster: Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Tables, Figures, Results, and Conclusions.
