A. Poster Guidelines
The title should be the same as in the submitted abstract.
The poster must be A0 size (A0 size is 841mm x 1189mm) in portrait orientation.
The poster should be easily readable at a distance of two metres.
Use UPPER and lower case for general content as the use of all-capital text is difficult to read. Avoid using a mixture of type/font styles.
Include the title of your presentation at the top of the poster.
Characters should be a minimum of 48 point font size.
Your name, School or Centre should also be displayed on the poster. HEADINGS 48 to 60 point font size is recommended for headings.
24 to 32 font size single spaced is recommended.
The message that your poster contains should be clear and understandable without the requirement of oral explanation.
Results should be in line with those originally submitted in your abstract.
Use pictures, symbols and colour. Figure legends are essential and should be short but informative. If using graphs, they should have a short heading.
For visual effect, we recommend that graphs should not be smaller than 12cm x 18cm. Photographs should not be smaller than 12cm x 18cm.
Use the space to attract your audience for discussion, not to present complex details of methods and results.

Tips for effective presentations:
- Titles should be 35– 45 points – make sure each slide has one. Short, concise titles are best.
- Use 24 point fonts or larger for body copy.
- Contrast title and body text by colour and font size.
- Do not over use bold, italic and all capital letters, italics can be hard to read.
- Make sure charts stand on their own and can be understood.
- As a guide: 6 words per bullet, 6 bullets /lines per slide.
- If you have more than four rows or four columns in a table, it will be difficult to read.
- Keep the colour scheme the same throughout the presentation.
- Keep fonts, bullets, colour, and graphics consistent in the presentation.
- As a guide, 10-15 Slides for presentation.
