Guidelines for the Preparation of Posters

Layout and Structure

  1. Print quality and dimensions:
    1. The poster should be A0 size (84.1 x 118.9 cm or 33.1 x 46.8 inches), printed in portrait orientation.
    2. The poster should be printed on matte paper without hard backing so you can roll it up for travel.
    3. Images should be printed at a resolution of between 150 to 300dpi.
  2. Title and Authors:
    1. Place the title at the top center.
    2. Use a large, bold font (at least 72 pt) for the title.
    3. Include author names and affiliations below the title in a slightly smaller font (48-60 pt).
  3. Sections:
    1. Common sections include Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion, and References.
    2. Arrange sections logically and use headings to distinguish them.
    3. Ensure a natural flow, often left to right or top to bottom.
  4. Column Layout:
    1. Use a column layout (typically three columns for A0 size).
    2. Keep columns narrow enough to read easily from top to bottom without excessive eye movement.
