  • Title - The title should be the same as in the submitted abstract. 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.
  • Size - The poster must be no less than A1 and no larger than A0 size (AO size is 841mm x 1189mm). Orientation of your poster must be in portrait style.
  • Lettering - 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.
  • Headings - 48 to 60 point font size is recommended for headings.
  • Content - 24 to 32 font size single spaced is recommended. The text should be concise and easy to read.
    The following websites provide some useful information on preparing effective posters for conference presentation.
