Tips for preparing your poster

Your poster will be a means to present your work and get your message across. To achieve this, we strongly recommend following the guidelines below.


Content

Each poster should contain the following:

  • A short, descriptive title
  • Full names of contributing authors
  • Authors’ affiliations
  • An introduction laying out the purpose of the presentation. Prepare a pitch to explain the main message of your work in 1 minute, making use of the pictures and figures on your poster.
  • Use bullet points and only the most relevant text. 200-300 words are more than enough for the main text.
  • Highlight the aim and the conclusion using bold or coloured fonts (clear and simple, emphasising implications for practice).

Fonts

The poster should be readable from a 2-meter distance. The recommended font size is:

  • at least 60pt for the title;
  • at least 44pt for the authors/affiliations and possible headings of sections;
  • at least 36pt for the body text.

Pictures and graphics

Particular attention should be paid to the resolution of pictures. As a rule of thumb, use at least 300 dpi resolution. Make use of colour and graphics. At least 3 pictures or figures are recommended to graphically show your study design and results.
