You must set up and tear down your poster during the designated times. Posters must remain up until the time specified.

The committees will not be responsible for posters and materials left on poster boards after the stated hours.

Presenters are requested to have copies of their presentation (in A4 size) available as handouts. This is not mandatory, just an option for the presenter, to increase the impact of the presentation.

 

5.POSTER PREPARATION GUIDELINES

Poster Size and Design

 

Use the following instructions when preparing your poster:

 

  • Dimensions of the poster board are 90 cm width x 150 cm height, and the board will be used in a vertical alignment. Please include your presentation number # (provided in the notification email) in the top right corner in your poster materials; make it large enough to make it easy for people to find your presentation.

 

  • Your heading display should include your “presentation number” of the abstract, title, author(s), and affiliation(s). Please attach a photograph of yourself to the poster so that other participants can recognize you as the presenter.

 

  • Styles in displaying your information in figures, tables, text, photography are not restricted. Figures should be designed to be viewed from a distance and should use clear visible graphics and large type. Color can be effective if used sparingly; use saturated dark colors on white background, or rich, bright colors on dark backgrounds.

 

Pushpins, Velcro or tape to adhere your poster to the board are provided on site.

Three best poster will be awarded by committee judges to be winner of best poster award.
