Regarding Poster Presentation:

• Size of Poster boards – portrait format 120cm or, 4ft (height) X 90 cm or, 3ft (width) mounted with pins/tacks. Poster presenters will be required to stand by their posters during lunch time sessions. The authors of the poster have to give verbal presentation to the participants visiting the poster exhibition area. Poster should be taken down only at the end of the Conference Exhibition.
• Be sure to include the abstract title, author names, and the institution where the work was completed, in large letters centered at the top of the poster. Place your address, phone number and email address in the upper right-hand corner. Your contact information is not mandatory.
• We suggest that you place a reproduction of the abstract in the upper left side of the poster, and use the headings “Introduction”, “Methods”, “Results” and “Conclusions” to identify your poster layout. Include an acknowledgment section, containing anyone who helped you conduct this project. Follow the above mentioned Abstract Submission Rules (for Podium Presentation).
• Set up your poster in a column format.
• Use a type size that can be read easily from a considerable distance (4 feet or more). Try using a type between 14 – 20 pt. The title should be larger than the rest of the text. Select a legible font such as Times Roman, Times New Roman etc.
• Posters should stimulate discussion, not give a long presentation. Therefore, keep text to a minimum, emphasize graphics, and make sure every item in your poster is necessary.
• Space your information proportionally: divide your poster either horizontally or vertically into three or four sections, and place your materials within those spaces. Like a layout of a magazine.
• Hand carry your poster to the meeting, using tubular packaging or a portfolio case. Do not mail your poster to the Congress authority.
• Come prepared with any relevant handouts you may wish to share and business cards to hand out.
• When choosing a background, remember that neutral or gray colors will be easier on the eyes than a bright color. In addition, color photos look best when mounted on gray.
• Be sure to bring pushpins, thumbtacks or velcro to mount your poster. They will not be provided to you at the conference.
• Please note that each poster will be on display for both days i.e. 23rd & 24th January, 2014.
