PRESENTATION:

 

  • You must be knowledgeable in your subject and answer questions during your presentation.
  • Presentation timing: For top 5 best posters, you are given 10 minutes to present your poster and an additional 5 minutes for Question & Answer session.
  • Presenters should mention the sponsors of their research, if applicable, in their presentation.
  • Presenters are requested to have copies of their presentation available as handouts. This is not mandatory, just an option for the presenter, to increase the impact of the presentation.
  • You are required to stay at your poster during the allocated time (closed session) and preferably during breaks throughout the meeting.

 

POSTER DESIGN

 

Use the following instructions when preparing your poster:

  • Your display should include the TITLE and AUTHOR(s).
  • You have complete freedom in displaying your information in figures, tables, text, photography, etc. Figures should be designed to be viewed from a distance and should use clear visible graphics and large type. Color can be effective if used sparingly; use saturated dark colors on white background and rich, bright colors on dark backgrounds.
  • The presentation must cover the same material as the abstract.
  • Briefly describe procedures and materials. Define all trade names first then, use generic names throughout. All compounds and drugs must be identified.
  • Prepare all illustrations neatly and legibly beforehand, in a size sufficient to be read at a distance of 8 feet (240 cm). Remember — a series of typewritten sheets attached to the poster board is not an acceptable poster.
  • It is helpful to viewers if the sequence to be followed is indicated by numbers, letters, or arrows.
  • Attach a small photograph of yourself to the poster so that other participants can recognize you as the presenter.
