POSTER REQUIREMENTS

The poster should be kept to A0 format (841х1189mm).

The poster may be horizontal or vertical.

The text and graphics should be visible in 1 m distance.

The title should be formatted with no less than 60-point type and the text should have at least 20-point type.

The poster should contain more graphic information than a textual one.

The poster presentation, like a scientific article, usually contains all the sections such as introduction, methodology, results, discussion, conclusions, and references. You may also add acknowledgments to thank those who have supported your research. An average poster is considered to cover around 5 to 10 minutes of presentation.

We provide all the necessary pins, clips and sticky tape to fix your poster. You can also bring your laptop and use it if needed. All poster places are numbered; you can check your number in a programme. You should be near your poster all the time allotted to the poster section.
