For scientific studies, research or research-based projects, organize the body of the abstract as follows: 

(a) Objectives, (b) Methods, (c) Results, (d) Conclusions

Conclusions must be supported by data 

Preparing your poster: 

  • All posters have to be in English (A0 or A1 accepted) 
  • If a scientific paper, organise your poster as follows: 
  • Introduction/Background – Objective/Methods – Results – Conclusions 
  • Keep all elements of your poster (pictures, tables, graphics, drawings, photos) simple. 
  • Remember that the visitor has to be able to read the text from a distance of up to 1.5 m. 
  • Make sure that the poster speaks for itself and does not require extensive explanations. 
  • Plan your layout in such a way that the viewer can move her/his eyes from left to right and from top to bottom with appropriate breaks. 
  • Try to prepare a poster in one part – if constructed with many parts make sure to know the order. 
  • References can be presented in smaller font size, but you will need to restrict the number of references to a maximum of 6. 
  • It is also useful to have A4 sheet handouts similar to the poster. This provides a useful ‘take-away’ resource. Please make sure you provide your contact details on the handout.

Posters will be on display on 14th September 2022. Mounting material to hang your poster will be provided by our team. Poster presenters are requested to be present at their poster during the Poster Networking Session during breaks. Delegates will have the opportunity to meet with the abstract authors to discuss their research and ask questions.
