- E-Posters must be delivered at the registration desk on 23 November 2016 from 8:00 – 10:00 am.
- Do not intend it as an oral presentation: The intention of an E-Poster does not include attracting visitors to stay for a long oral, video, or slideshow presentation. Display elements can either loop for a minute or less, or be activated and controlled by the poster presenter on command. Remember, you are to interact with those who are interested in your E-Poster, not give a presentation to an audience.
- Multiple- slide E-Poster Formatting Tips:
- Set the page setup or slide size to “On-screen show (16:9)”.
- E-Poster should be concise with design and content. Overcrowding a poster makes it difficult to read.
- Use bullet points.
- Use fonts that are large enough to read at a distance. Use a minimum font size of 14 points.
- Include the title and name(s) of the presenter(s) in larger, bolder font than the rest of the poster.
- It is advisable to organize your poster presentation in sections: Goals, Introduction, Methods, Results and Conclusions.
- Avoid using too many slides. Recommended number of slides is 8 – 10 slides.
- Provide clear labels or headings for each section of your presentation.
- Put a footer on each slide such as “Slide 1 of 6” to let the viewer who walks by mid-cycle of your slideshow know where they are in the presentation and how long they’ll wait until it begins again.
- Remember contrast. Put light-colored fonts on dark backgrounds and dark fonts on light-colored backgrounds so that your viewer can see your text clearly.
- Imbed high-quality graphics.
- Avoid hyperlinks. Internet access will not be available during your presentation.
- Sound is not permitted due to the open area in which posters will be presented.
