Poster Guidelines for Interactive Sessions  

For interactive session presentation, authors will present their posters, with options to present demonstrators and videos, in a 1-hour block of scheduled interaction with the participants.  

When producing a poster for presentation at ICSR 2018, presenters are asked to follow the guidelines below:
• All posters are required to be A0 size in Portrait Orientation (0.84 x 1.19 m). Failure to follow this requirement will mean that the poster will not fit on the allotted board.
• Posters must be printed on paper. Please do not print on fabric as they will not adhere to the boards.
• Posters should be clear and easy to read. The font size should be sufficiently large to allow people to read from 2-3 meters away. (Minimum of 18pt font size for text and larger for titles). Do not reduce the text size in order to fit more information onto one poster.
• Try to avoid overloading it with information – too much information or a cluttered appearance detracts from the overall impact. Less is more!
• The simple use of color can enhance a poster but avoid the temptation towards using too many colors that distract from the content.
• Consider the use of suitable photographs, images, tables, charts and graphs. Keep logos discrete and to a minimum.
• The poster background should be plain to ensure legibility.
• Before sending to print do not forget to proof read the poster yourself, and ask someone else to do the same, checking also for clarity.
