Poster Presentation Guidelines

GIPO-2017 is looking forward to your participation and poster presentation at the conference during 29-31 July 2017.

Purpose of a Poster Presentation

  • Acquaint conference participants with the fundamentals of your program, project, or study quickly and easily.
  • Use text, graphs, tables, charts, and pictures to present only highlights.
  • Catch your viewers' attention.
  • Make the viewer want to learn more about your program, project, or study.

Designing an Effective Poster

Your poster should fit on a poster board that is 4 ft wide x 8 ft high (1.2 m wide x 2.4 m high). The exact poster dimensions are up to poster presenters, but it is recommended to be no larger than 4 ft wide x 5 ft high for ease of vertical viewing.

The following guidelines are recommended when organizing your poster:

  • Include the abstract title and all authors at the top.
  • Posters should be readable by viewers from up to five feet away.
  • The message should be clear and understandable without oral explanation.
  • Keep any text brief.
  • Do not use all capital letters.
  • Use graphics (i.e., charts, tables, pictures) that can be understood in one minute or less.
  • Ideas should flow from panel to panel logically.
  • Describe all parts of the project/study, including why the outcome did or did not work as expected.
    • Background
    • Objectives
    • Research Design/Program Description
    • Results/Evaluation
    • Conclusion(s)
    • Future Plans
  • The viewer should gain new knowledge or insight by visiting your poster.
  • Consider providing a handout summarizing your research, and include your contact information or be sure to have your business cards available.

Poster Hall Etiquette

  • Hang your poster during the assigned poster hanging times. Please do not use this time to preview other posters. Once you have placed your poster please exit the poster hall.
  • Stand by your poster for the duration of the poster session.
  • If you are comfortable doing so, bring handouts with contact information and/or business cards.
  • Chairs are provided only for those with special accommodation needs.
