Paper Poster Presentation 

Poster specifications 

  • All poster boards are 4H x 8W feet in size. The maximum size your poster could be is 3.75 H x 7.5 W in size. The boards will be a  neutral color and Velcro or pins may be used to mount poster materials (responsibility of presenter). 
  • The poster does not necessarily have to fill the entire working area. 
  • The board must be oriented in the "landscape" position (long dimension is horizontal).
  • Please follow the allocated display time and remove your poster promptly to avoid it being discarded. 


  • A banner displaying your poster title (name or department if appropriate) should be positioned at top-center of the board (see Figure 1). We advise including your contact email address on your poster.
  • Aside from eposters, there will be no electrical or audio visual provisions.
  • An effective poster is:
    • Focused on a single message
    • Visual – let the graphics, charts etc. tell a story rather than essay style text.
  • Assume that delegates will be looking at your poster from about 2 feet away, and design it to be read from that distance.
  • Keep the message simple, well-organized and obvious.
  • Profile your work as well as provide an effective summary of your findings. It should be able to stand alone. State your results/conclusions/recommendations in a straight forward manner.
