2 - SIZE OF POSTER
One 2.00 m (vertical) x 1.00 m (horizontal) fabric covered wood panel. The poster may be secured/appended to the panel by pins.
3 - ARRANGEMENT OF THE POSTER
The posters should be intelligible by themselves, even in the absence of the author. It will be of great help to the participants if all poster presentations are arranged in the same sequence of captions.
Authors and Affiliation
OBJECTIVES should include a background summary of the problem and state the aim of the study in relation to previous work in the field, and to possible applications.
CONCLUSIONS should give a summary of the interpretation, stating the significance of the results, and be presented in a clear way.
METHODS should inform the reader about the way in which you have treated the problem.
RESULTS should indicate the most important experimental or theoretical findings that will validate the conclusions. Do not overload this section with text: use graphs, drawings and pictures.
Many participants will read OBJECTIVES and CONCLUSIONS and decide on that basis whether to have a closer look at the poster. We suggest that you start OBJECTIVES at an easily understandable level.
4 - PREPARATION OF THE POSTER
Please take the following suggestions as a guide for displaying your poster most advantageously. The basis for a successful poster is a balanced mixture of textual and pictorial presentation of the work. An explanation in the form of an illustration or photograph is often preferable to text, because it is more eye-catching and takes the participants less time to catch the idea. It is also of great help if the language poses a problem.
All tables and figures should be given a caption (brief title, key words) and axes should be clearly labelled. Do not overburden tables and figures with information. Use colours for emphasis and distinction.
The text and illustrations must be readable from a distance. It must be possible to read the material on the left panel in a reasonably short time and from a distance of not less than one meter.
We suggest a minimum letter height of 5-6 mm, and a minimum line thickness of about 1 mm, for example.
