Guidelines for the Preparation of your Scientific Poster

  • Your poster MUST be in portrait format.
  • Your poster must be printed and MUST NOT BE LARGER than A0: Height=1189mm, Width=841mm.
  • To ensure there is space between each presentation, poster walls will not always be aligned in a straight line, but may stand together in small groups to maximize visibility. Therefore, it is essential that your poster does not exceed the maximum width of 841 mm.
  • Each poster presenter will be provided with Velcro stickers to attach their poster to their assigned board. Posters printed on canvas or heavy material are not recommended because they often prove too heavy. Pins may not be used on the poster boards provided because they damage the boards: only Velcro strips are permitted.
  • You will have access to the boards 30 minutes before the start of your poster session.
  • Posters must be removed after the end of the session. Congress organizers will not be responsible for remaining posters.
  • At least one of the authors must be present at your poster during the entire presentation session. Session Chairs will check for posters without a presenter, and report them.
  • Please note posters should NOT be sent to the Committee, nor the congress organisers, but should be brought as a hardcopy by the presenter and placed on their numbered board 30 mins before their allocated session.

Suggested poster format

  • Posters should be easily read at a distance of 1.5 meters.
  • A poster printed on one large sheet of paper is encouraged.
  • Include the title of the paper, the authors’ names, and their affiliations at the top of the poster.
  • Avoid excessive amounts of text. Instead, provide information in short bullet points.
  • Poster number labels will be provided on site and will be placed above your poster on the board; you do not need to leave room on your poster for this label.
  • Introduction and Summary/Conclusions sections are advised.
  • Double spaced text is recommended.
