Call for Posters

Poster submission is now closed.

We welcome posters corresponding to the conference theme & topics.

Posters should be prepared in A0 format, meaning a maximum width of 841 mm/33.11 inches and a maximum height of 1189 mm/46.81 inches. We advice you to prepare a poster in portrait format (i.e. “standing up”). Landscape format is accepted, but since the maximum width is 841 mm/33.11 inches this will leave you less space to use. In other words, you are not allowed to just flip the A0 over 90 degrees.

There are no requirements on fonts, font sizes, logos or other matters concerning the layout. However, making a successful poster takes some skills.

In contrast to a paper, a poster is to present your research through visual elements such as diagrams, figures, flow charts, tables etc. rather than in text. Keep the text to a minimum. “Bullet points” are better than sentences. Also make sure that you use a font size that will make it readable at some distance. Here’s one suggestion to point to you in the right direction:

Title: 85pt
Authors: 56pt
Sub-headings: 36pt
Body text: 24pt
Captions: 18pt

Acceptance notification: 11 May 2014.
