Poster Information

Presenting a poster is a great way to visually share your research work and expertise with a wide range of delegates who are interested to learn about what you have done and give you feedback. The guidelines below give you some tips to help you design and develop your poster and how to display it for presentation at the Conference.

Poster Displays

A0 Portrait

(841mm wide X 1189mm high)

An A0 Portrait display board with an area of 0.84m x 1.19m will be provided for your poster. Please refer to the size in the diagram to the left. Failure to follow this requirement will mean that the poster will not fit on the allotted board.

The poster boards are made of soft cloth material and Velcro will be used to attach the poster to the board.  Velcro will be supplied.

It is preferred that Posters are printed on paper, but this is not a requirement. Fabric tends to not adhere to the boards as well as the paper. However, once they are secured in place, fabric posters are acceptable.

Poster Format
  • Posters should be clear and easy to read. The font size should be sufficiently large to allow people to read from 2-3 metres away. (Minimum of 18pt font size for text and larger for titles). Do not reduce the text size in order to fit more information onto one poster. Although your poster can expand on the information provided in your submission, try to avoid overload – too much information or a cluttered appearance detracts from the overall impact. Less is more!

  • A potential poster outline could be: title, author information, introduction, methods/materials, results/findings, conclusions/implications, funder.
  • The simple use of colour can enhance a poster but avoid the temptation towards using too many colours that distract from the content.
  • Consider the use of suitable photographs, images, tables, charts and graphs. Keep logos discrete and to a minimum.
  • The poster background should be plain to ensure legibility.
  • Before sending to print do not forget to proof read the poster yourself, and ask someone else to do the same, checking also for clarity. Remember to add your contact information so that interested readers can follow up with you after the conference.
