Poster Guidelines for Authors

General Poster Recommendations
A poster is a graphically based approach to presenting research. You should aim to use the poster as a means for generating active discussion. Posters will be displayed Tuesday and Wednesday in the exhibition hall which is also used for breaks and meals. Please plan to be next to your poster at the beginning of the daily breaks and briefly before lunch.

The poster must be in English.

Sizing and Orientation
The poster size is 48" (1219mm) high x 36"(914mm) wide. Note that the board is oriented in the "portrait" position (long dimension is vertical).

Ideally, you will have designed and printed the poster on a 48” x 36” sheet. Rolling the sheet and placing it in a mailing tube is a good option when traveling. The poster, however, may consist of individual sheets of paper (A4 or 8.5 X 11) and these can be mounted in either portrait or landscape orientation. Please plan to assemble your poster on Monday (registration day). The ICSP-11 staff will assist with mounting the paper on poster board using spray adhesive or push-pins.

Lettering and Images
Please use Arial typeface. Title lettering should be upper case in bold font. Author(s) name and affiliation should be in regular font with mixed upper case and lower case. When designing your poster, please remember that it will be viewed at a distance of several feet. Small type and small, poor quality images will discourage readership of the poster.

Be sure your name is shown clearly on the poster. You may wish to include a photo of yourself if space permits thus allowing easy identifications for those seeking more information. You may also wish to include your e-mail address and URL for web site related to your project.


qr code You may include a QR code on your poster for a quick link to your web site. Smart phones with NeoReader or similar software can "read" the graphic and display text or send you to a web site. The graphic at the left will take you to the ISCSP web site.
