Poster Preparation

These are things that presenters should do as they set-up and present their research:


  1. Presentations can only be made in poster format.
  2. Download the poster template from here.
  3. Guidelines for the preparation of posters can be found here
  4. Display boards have inside dimensions of 44"(height) by 66"(width). Please ensure that your poster fits within these dimensions.
  5. Do not use Velcro to mount your poster; push pins will be provided for you.
  6. Oral presentations should last up to 5 minutes.
  7. Each poster can be presented by one or two presenters. One presenter must remain in front of the poster during the time allocated for presentation.
  8. Substitution of presenters or significant changes in the title of the presentation from that submitted in the abstract will not be permitted.
  9. Advertising material or commercial promotional material for a product or service is strictly prohibited. Drugs and products mentioned in the presentation should be identified by chemical formulae or by generic name. Product names may be used for identification and clarification purposes only. Should the use of product names only be advantageous to the viewers understanding of the presentation, the rationale should be submitted in advance.
