ePoster Guidelines

PREPARING YOUR ePOSTER

ePoster Presentation Best Practices
  1. Rough Layout – Enlarge your best initial sketch, keeping the dimensions in proportion to the final ePoster. Ideally, the rough layout should be full size. A blackboard is a convenient place to work. Print the title and headlines. Indicate text by horizontal lines. Draw rough graphs and tables. This will give you a good idea of proportions and balance. Ask associates for comments. This is still an experimental stage.
  2. Text Layout – Avoid abbreviations, acronyms, and jargon.Use a consistent font throughout. It is recommended that authors use a minimum of 22 pt. font size; this makes the text legible.
  3. Final Layout – The artwork is complete and the text and tables are typed, but not necessarily enlarged to full size. Now ask, is the message clear? Do the important points stand out? Is there a balance between words and illustrations? Is there spatial balance? Is the pathway through the ePoster clear?
  4. Balance – Figures and tables should cover slightly more than 50% of the ePoster area. If you have only a few illustrations, enlarge them. Do not omit text, but keep it brief. The ePoster should be comprehensible without oral explanation.
  5. Eye Movement – The movement (pathway) of the eye over the ePoster should be natural, down the columns or along the rows. Size attracts attention.Arrows, pointing hands, numbers, and letters can help clarify the sequence.
  6. Simplicity – Resist the temptation to overload the ePoster. More material may mean less communication.
