Poster Design Tips

  • Don’t overload your poster. Remember, you are not writing an article. Seek simplicity, keep text to a minimum, and avoid redundancies.
  • At the top of poster, please provide the title of the paper, names of the authors and their affiliations, all in bold lettering of about 2.5 to 3 cm. Artwork and lettering should be large and clear enough so that the poster is readable from a distance of 1.5 m. Use a constant font throughout the poster.
  • Use 500 to 1,000 words (including title, figure legends, and tables) – definitely not more. The figures and tables should cover approximately 50% of the poster area.If possible, avoid abbreviations and acronyms, especially in the Conclusions.Feel free to provide one or more key references.
  • The average reader spends 1–2 minutes on your poster. Highlight your main finding. Most colleagues start by reading the Conclusions. Thus, don’t hide them. Put them at eye level, either on top of the right column or, alternatively, start with the Conclusions. Otherwise, structure your poster by Introduction, Methods, and Results. State your aims in the end of the Introduction.
  • Offering handouts of your abstract or poster (including your contact details) may facilitate future research communication with interested readers.
  • Prepare a short (< 4 minutes) oral guide through your poster.
