Additional Guidance Notes for Poster Presentation

  • Please note that the official Congress language is English. All presentations must be made in English.
  • The title should be emphasized by the use of bold-face type. When printed, the letters should not be smaller than 15 mm and the sub-title should be printed in the same kind of lettering, but semi-bold and not less than 10 mm high. This guarantees clear reading even from a distance of 2-3 meters.
  • Text sections should be broken up by the inclusion of drawings and/or photos and or graphs of data, simply keep text to minimum. Bullet points and phrases are more effective than complete sentences.
  • Charts, drawings, and illustrations should be similar to those you would use for slide presentations, but more heavily drawn. Remember to keep illustrated and written material simple.
  • All illustrations should be made up beforehand. Remember that your illustrations must be legible from a distance of at least 3 to 5 feet.
  • The use of color makes a poster more attractive and effective.
  • Display of commercial/product sales posters is prohibited. Any poster that is deemed to be a commercial advertisement will be removed from the poster hall.
