Posters for the ASID 2017 conference will be a way of getting the basics of your research to people who may not have the opportunity to attend your presentation session. As such, they should contain the main points from your presentation. Posters will use the same abstract and number as your presentation.
Posters will remain on display throughout the conference. You will be expected to stand by your poster to discuss the contents with interested delegates for at least one of the scheduled poster sessions. You may want to add your mobile phone number so delegates can arrange to meet you at your poster at specific times.
The poster mounting boards are 950mm wide and 1940mm high. Your poster must fit on to the board with no overlap. The boards will be velcro compatible.
Please consider the following when preparing your poster.
- Use a large font size, and bullet your major points. Text should be printed in a minimum of 16 font
- Keep the text to a minimum – most posters contain far too much text.
- Attractive charts, tables and graphics will greatly increase the effectiveness of any poster. Illustrations and tables should be kept relatively simple to maximize legibility.
- Lines in graphs should be heavy. Choose colours that are easily distinguishable from one another.
- It’s easier to read a poster if the information is arranged in vertical columns rather than horizontal strips.
- The poster should be self-explanatory, so that you are free to answer questions and discuss the research with interested persons.
- Please include on your poster all contact details including name(s), organisation name, job title and email address(es).
- You may wish to prepare a sheet of paper on which people can provide their name, email address and work address for a subsequent mailing of information.
- Bringing A4 copies of the poster as a handout also helps particularly if you do not wish delegates to take photos of your poster.
