Instructions for Poster Presentations The following guidelines will be of help when you prepare your poster presentation. Preparing your poster Poster board size Size of usable area: A0 landscape (125 cm wide and 100 cm high) Text on poster Use a clear typeface and, if possible, a laser printer. Limit the amount of text on your poster: it should be inviting for readers, and does not require the level of detail included in a research paper. The poster should be readable from a distance of 2-3 meters. This means that all lettering should be at least 8mm high, with a minimum font size of 24. Graphs and diagrams Graphs and figures should also be readable from a distance of 2-3 meters. Therefore, use a minimum line width of 1 mm. Handouts ‘Handouts’, photocopies of either your individual poster units or the whole presentation reduced to A4 format, are generally well appreciated by delegates. Poster-session The Poster Sessions will be organized on Thursday January 24, from 13.30 – 14.15 hours; and Friday January 25, from 13.15 – 14.00 hours. All Poster authors are kindly requested to be present at their poster during the entire session. All delegates are invited to walk around the poster area to view the posters and to enter into lively and challenging discussions with the poster presenters. Poster award nomination process During the sessions, all posters will be rated by a poster-award committee. The two top-rated posters will receive the ARPH Poster Award (one award for each day). Apart from the poster awards, the authors of the eight top-rated poster abstracts will be invited to provide a poster pitch on stage during the poster sessions. The selected candidates for the pitches will be notified in the beginning of January. Poster Area Posters and pitches will be presented in the lounge hall, which is located close to the Abdij Hall. You will receive the number assigned to your poster and the day on which you have to present in your email.
