    Be considerate to the other speakers and audience by staying within your allocated time. The allocated time for your presentation includes a discussion and a changeover to the next speaker.

Each presenter is provided with a 1m width x 2.5m high high poster panel. The presentation must cover the same material as the paper submitted. The poster should be 1 x A0 size in vertical/portrait format, measuring 841 mm length x 1189 mm height maximum.

  1. Place your Paper ID, Paper Title and Authors’ names prominently at the top of the poster to allow viewers to identify your paper easily. Presenter’s name must be underlined and in bold letterings.

  2. Author’s names, e-mails and address information must be provided in case the viewer is interested in contacting you for more information.

  3. You have complete freedom in displaying your information in figures, tables, text, photographs, etc. in the poster.

  4. A successful poster presentation depends on how well you convey information to an interested (but not expert) audience. You may wish to structure your poster by including the background of your research followed by results and conclusions.

Some Suggestions on How to Prepare a Good Poster

  1. Design Clear and Concise Messages
    A poster that is overcrowded is unattractive and difficult to read. When showing results, present only those information that illustrate the main findings of the project when. Choose simple words and avoid long sentences.

  2. Easy to Read From a Distance
    The text of your poster should be large enough and easily read from a distance of 1.5 to 2 m. Suitable display size ranges from 19 pt for text to 70 pt for title. Here is the suggested guide:
    · Use 20 pt for text 70 pt for your title
    · For good contrast, chose a bolder font
    · Do not use all UPPER CASE as it makes your poster difficult to read

  3. A Picture Paints a Thousand Words
    Use graphs (instead of tables) to present numerical data
