Tips for preparing your poster

  • Content: Use a short descriptive title, full name of contributing authors, author’s affiliation.
  • Make your message clear: Highlight your AIM and CONCLUSION on the poster using bold or colored fonts
  • Be brief: Use bullet points and only the most relevant text, 200-300 words is more than enough for the main text!
  • Picture and graphic: Particular attention should be paid to the resolution of pictures and photos. As a rule of thumb, use at least 300dpi resolution. Make use of colour and graphics. At least 3 pictures or figures are recommended to graphically show your study design and results.
  • Prepare a pitch: Know how to explain the main message of your work in 1 minute, making use of the pictures and figures on your poster.
