Poster Presentation Guideline
Before you start your poster remember the keys of poster SUCCESS FACTORS:
- Attract attention
- Provide brief overview of the work
- Show the importance and application
- Highlight the work novelty
The poster should preferably be A0 size, and must be mounted in portrait orientation. This means that the poster should not be wider than 840 mm, and not higher than 1188 mm.
Visual Aids (Good practice)
Use the Arial font or Times New Romans. If these two fonts are not available, try universe or another Sans Serif font such as Verdana.
The title of your poster should be done in Title case and must be readable from a distance of at least 2 meters.
All text must be easily readable from a distance of 1 or 2 meters.
All graphs and charts should be at least 20 × 30 cm. Graphs and figures make a poster more interesting.
Use color to attract attention, but do not use too many different colors, because then it may be come a distraction.
Tables should be kept simple and used sparingly. Graphs are generally more effective.
Start your poster with an introduction, and finish with a clear conclusion, focusing on the major finding of the work you are presenting.
It is helpful to have copies of a written version of your poster available in A4 format attached for those viewers who may want to study aspects of your work in more detail.
Have your business cards/contact details available for those who may wish to contact you a later date.
Bring along a writing pad of blank paper that you may use for a discussion of technical details relating to your poster.
Please divide your poster into sections such as: Introduction, objectives, Methods, Results, Discussion and Conclusions. You might consider organizing your poster around the following questions:
- What problem do you address? (Objectives)

- How did you address the problem? (Methods)
- What did you discover as a result of your work? (Results)
- What are the conclusions or greater implications of your work?(Discussion and conclusion)
