Poster Display Information

General aim and format

  •  A poster is a graphically based approach to presenting research. In presenting your research with a poster, you should aim to use the poster as a means for generating active discussion of the research.
  • Limit the text to about one-fourth of the poster space, and use "visuals" (graphs, photographs, schematics, maps, etc.) to tell your "story."

Design and layout specifications

  • You will be provided with a 6' draped table to present your poster.
  • The entire poster should not surpass 40" x 60" foam-core board. The poster does not necessarily have to fill the entire working area.
  • The board should be oriented in the "landscape" position (long dimension is horizontal).
  • Make it obvious to the viewer how to progressively view the poster. The poster generally should read from left to right, and top to bottom. Numbering the individuals panels, or connecting them with arrows is a standard "guidance system".
  • Leave some open space in the design. An open layout is less tiring to the eye and mind.
