Guidelines for the Preparation & Presentation of Posters

An academic poster is a visual representation of your submitted research paper. Authors should aim to use the poster as a mean for generating active discussion of the research. Please note that the text and presentation of all posters should be in English only.

Design and layout

  • All posters should be in LANDSCAPE format and size: 3.10 feet (Length) X 2.10 feet (Height). One (01) inch border must be kept in all sides to fix the posters in supporting frames.
  • The top of the poster should display, in lettering not smaller than 2.5 cm in height, the following information (see Figure 01): Title of the Paper, Name(s) of the Author(s), Affiliation(s)
  • Whilst a poster is a visual tool it still needs to maintain a logical structure in order that a viewer can easily follow and understand your argument from start to finish. Consider including an introduction, methodology, results, discussion, conclusion and references.
  • The poster should be easily readable at a distance of two meters. Use upper and lower case for general content, as all-capital text is difficult to read. Avoid using mixtures of font styles.
