ESCAIDE 2013: Poster Guidelines
Size: Posters should be available in A0 size, portrait version (118.9 x 84.1cm).
Layout: The poster should be easily readable from a distance of about 2 metres. A
carefully considered layout attracts interest, and facilitates for the reader to
understand the author’s findings and their significance. Do not crowd your poster.
Heading: The character size for the poster title shall be at least 25 mm, and for the
authors’ names and affiliations at least 15 mm. Mixed upper and lower case is
recommended to facilitate readability. The presenting author shall be mentioned
Figures and Tables: All figures and tables shall be clearly legible from at least 2 m,
and each figure shall have a short, self-explanatory legend. Character size in Figure
Legends and Tables shall be at least 7 mm. Clarity is much enhanced by careful
design and labelling of the figures, and can be further improved by clear colour-
To give additional details of your work, you may wish to bring handouts for
interested viewers to pick up.
Printing: All delegates will be responsible for the printing and carriage of their
poster to the venue. There will be no provision to print posters on site.
Poster registration at the conference
- Each poster will be allocated a unique poster number (which will be distinct from the original abstract number).
- More information will be given to you on site at the registration desk.
Amendment of abstracts
Please note that it is possible to make minor corrections to accepted abstracts where these do not alter the underlying abstract content. Modifications can be done directly in the abstract management system no later than Friday 30 August.
Publication of Posters
In order to support transparency and to ensure your work has maximum impact, we would like to invite poster authors to submit their posters for publication on the ESCAIDE website after the conference. Note that this is entirely voluntary, but hope that many will wish to have their work available for others to view:
• If you wish for your poster to be published on-line please send a copy of the final poster presentation to ESCAIDE staff. Poster files can also be uploaded in the speaker room during the conference. We are happy to accept amended version of the posters if you wish to remove sensitive data and other material before publication.
