Tips for Visuals & Text

  • Present numerical data in the form of graphs, rather than tables (graphs make trends in the data much more evident).If data must be presented in table-form.

  • Visuals should be simple and bold.

  • Avoid acronyms and extensive mathematical notations as much as possible.

  • Posters with 800 words or less are perfect. Avoid submitting compactly packed, high word-count posters.

  • Organise your poster into subdivisions, e.g., Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, and Literature Cited (avoid using too many citations).

  • Use bright colours to enhance the detail.

  • Text should be readable from 1m distance.

  • Besides your project, the text could also include future research plans or questions.

  • Each poster should be A0 size, 841 x 1189mm and printed by the author.

  • The title, contents and the author’s information should be clearly visible.

Posters will be judged by an expert panel headed by Neil Farmer, Executive Director, Tony Gee & Partners, during the drinks reception following day one of Amconf.

The selection of the winner will be based on:

  • The clarity of poster and oral presentations.
  • Your overall responses to the questions of the judges and the completeness of work.
