Poster Specifications & design suggestions

The poster should be a visual presentation of your submitted abstract and should meet the following criteria:

TITLE The title should be the same as in the submitted abstract.

SIZE The poster must be no less than A1 and no larger than A0 size (AO size is 841mm x 1189mm). Orientation of your poster must be in portrait (vertical) style.

LETTERING The poster should be easily readable at a distance of two metres. Use UPPER and lower case for general content as the use of all-capital text is difficult to read. Avoid using a mixture of type/font styles.

AUTHORS Include names off all authors

CONTENT 24 to 32 point font size single spaced is recommended. The text should be concise and easy to read.

The message that your poster contains should be clear and understandable without the requirement of oral explanation.

Use pictures, symbols and colour. Figure legends are essential and should be short but informative. If using graphs, they should have a short heading. For visual effect, we recommend that graphs be no smaller than 12cm x 18cm.

Photographs should be no smaller than 12cm x 18cm.
