Definition: A poster is a visual display of the scientific abstract accepted to the conference. The focus is on a study, hypothesis or procedure/technique.
Posters will have equal importance as oral presentations.
Authors will receive a follow-up email with detailed instructions soon on the organization of posters. However general guidelines are as under:
Posters would be displayed in the e-poster area on our virtual portal throughout the conference.
Presenting An e-Poster
The following information contains items that are relevant for your poster presentations and display.
The E-poster will be displayed on standard Portrait Format
File format should be High Resolution JPEG (below 2 Mb file).
Single JPEG should be sent.
E Poster should be 42 X 59.5 cms (Conference or Event poster) in size.
For creating an e-poster, you can use this free online website www.canva.com. Sign up with Google or Facebook, or with your own email and password. In the search box, search for ‘Conference poster’. From the options shown, you can either choose from the templates, or choose from a blank template, and create your own poster by adding photos, text etc.
Animation/movies/sounds will not be supported; please submit in a static JPEG (Not GIF etc.)
The E-poster needs to be created as per suggestion under
1. The poster title should be displayed prominently at the top of the poster.
2. The text should include (most likely as separate elements of the poster) Introduction, Aim, Methods, Results, Conclusion and Acknowledgements
The poster should be self-explanatory. Text should be brief and well organized
The typeface chosen should be a simple and clear one (e.g. Helvetica)
The correct font size depends greatly on the fonts used in the JPEG and the thumb rule should be that if its visible well on the computer screen it shall be visible on the E-Poster Display Screen.
1. When using light backgrounds (white, yellow, light blue) we suggest using dark fonts (black, navy blue, dark green)
2. When using dark backgrounds (blue, purple) we suggest using light fonts (white, yellow, cyan)
3. Avoid using red or green in any fonts or backgrounds as they are colors that are difficult to read
Illustrations/images/photographs used in the E-poster should be enlarged enough to show relevant details
