SUGGESTIONS FOR PREPARING POSTERS


The poster boards, to be supplied by the hotel, will be 110 cm wide by 90 cm high.


Posters should be attached using adhesive tacks (Blu-Tack) which will be supplied.


The lettering should be large enough to be read by someone standing 2 m back from the poster.
The following text sizes are suggested:
   Title: 2 cm
   Authors' names and affiliations: 1 cm
   Section headings (ABSTRACT, INTRODUCTION, etc.): 1-1 cm
   The text itself should be of the order of 5-10 mm high.
   For clarity, use lots of diagrams, lots of colour, and not many words.
   Use phrases and short sentences in "bullet points"


It is recommended that the poster be divided into sections:
   a one or two sentence abstract;
   problem definition and/or aims;
   method;
   results;
   conclusions.


It is recommended that posters be prepared on large (A2 or A3) sheets, or even full size (A0), and not on A4 or quarto sheets taped together, the result of which looks amateurish.


The rules for the preparation of good slides apply equally to the preparation of good posters:
   keep them simple
   avoid overcrowding and excessive information
   use large lettering and thick lines
   "one picture is worth a thousand words"

and fix it to a wall to see how the letters in this sentence appear from
a convenient viewing distance.
