Poster & Oral Presentation Guidelines

Posters Specifications

Each author will share a 6' poster board with one other author, and each will have a useable area measuring 3' (91.44cm) wide x 4' (121.92 cm) high. This is a portrait/vertical format. Poster should be prepared to fit in the above suggested poster size.

Designing of effective posters requires careful thought and advance preparation. Identify the principal messages and then work out the most effective presentation, choose a headline to help highlight each point. Poster presentations should be designed to summarize current research in graphic forms: charts, tables, graphs, pictures, etc. Your poster should be self-explanatory so that you are free to supplement and discuss particular points raised in inquiry.

All poster presenters will be required to bring 5 minutes presentations in powerpoint presentation (.ppt) format for the award selection. (Not more than 5 slides)
