 POSTER CONTENT

In order to aid the reader, a clear and concise stated objective section is necessary. This can be followed by an experimental section. The results should be the major portion of the poster followed by the conclusions, stated briefly. DO NOT post your entire paper as it is will be impossible for even a small group to read extensive text material.

POSTER ORGANIZATION

A poster viewer should be able to extract the essence of your work by viewing the poster even when you are not present. This goal may be achieved by the use of one or more of the following suggestions:

  • Organize the poster units in an orderly fashion for a logical flow from top to bottom or left to right.
  • Number the units in the order you want them viewed or use connecting lines to guide the reader through the material.
  • Block and subtitle the parts of your poster as you would a paper.
  • Lay out your poster before coming to the conference and have it critiqued by a colleague.
  • Have handouts, supplementary data or updates available for interested participants to take away
