Size: Use standard 30″ x 40″ (76 cm x 102 cm) poster board, with the 30″ (76 cm) edge along the top and bottom.
Text lettering: Posters must be legible from a distance of at least 2 metres. Heading and subtitles should have the smallest letters in 80-point font (lowercase 12 mm, capitals 17 mm). In the text the smaller letters should be 36-point font (lowercase 7 mm, capitals 9 mm) with a line thickness of 1 mm.
Text: Give a brief (50 words) introduction stating very clearly the purpose of the study followed by material & methods and results. Minimize words while maximizing visuals. End with a brief (50 words) conclusions clearly highlighting the major findings, its significance and implications.
Illustrations: Each poster should have a single, easy to follow message, be readable in a few minutes, eye-catching, have logical layout, and include a photograph of the presenting authors for identification, along with authors’ names and addresses. Use colour pictures, graphs and diagrams in preference to tables. Captions and labels on diagrams and graphs should be readable from 2 meters distance and not be cluttered with unnecessary details. Diagrams and graphs should have no more than two lines in contrasting colours. Use of only one vertical scale per graph is preferable to tables.
Organization: The design should be sequentially from one part to the next. Number or arrows may be used to help the eye move from item to item in the correct order: left to right, top to bottom. Do not clutter with either text or artwork.
