POSTER PRESENTATION GUIDELINES
The following guidelines have been prepared to help improve the effectiveness of poster communication.
- First, identify the two or three principal messages you have to convey. Choose a title that captures your main point. Your poster should be a comprehensive scientific presentation, even if offered by a commercial organization.
- Prepare a heading at the top of your poster indicating the abstract title, authors, and affiliations.
- Lettering should be at least 1 in (2.54 cm) high.
- Summarize current research in graphic form whenever possible; use charts, tables, graphs, pictures, etc. and minimize the amount of text.
- Arrange materials in columns and use "white space" to help direct readers logically through your poster.
- Prepare your poster on laminated poster paper or fabric and mount on the poster board with the board number provided in your notification letter.
- Posters should be self-explanatory but not comprehensive. You will supplement and elaborate during your conversations with others, but many people will view your poster when you are not present.
- Your presentation must be readable from distances of at least 3 feet (90 cm). Keep visual materials simple and clear.
- Provide information in smaller type below the heading. Details of methodology should be brief and should be placed at the end of the legend.
- Simple use of color can add emphasis.
- Do not write or paint directly on the poster boards.
Before You Travel: Many airlines are now requiring that poster tubes be checked rather than brought as carry-on luggage. In case your poster does not arrive, we suggest you bring a smaller version of your poster presentation on A4 size paper as well as a copy of the presentation on a USB thumb drive. There is also a FedEx printing location within the convention center. If you have questions about their services, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The poster-board surface area is 66 inches wide (1.7 m) x 44 inches high (1.1 m). Please be sure your poster does not exceed this area.
- Push pins will be provided. Authors may bring their own push pins and thumbtacks.
- Do not leave personal materials or belongings at poster boards or in the poster area. ISAC/CYTO is not responsible for any articles left in the poster area or elsewhere.
- All poster boards are pre-numbered. Please be certain to mount your poster on the correct board.
- You must register and wear an official CYTO 2017 badge to access the poster area.
