In Preparation
A numbered panel will be allocated for each poster. The session dates and times as well as the allocation of your poster will be determined by the Local Organizing Committee. You will receive information about allocation and time via e-mail. The posters will be fixed on movable walls, provided by the organizer. It is assumed that you print the poster yourself. If you do not have the possibility to do so, please contact Carolin Kaufhold and send your poster in Adobe-PDF format via e-mail until May 10, 2013. Printed posters should be submitted on Monday 27th 2013 at the office of the Local Organising Committee at the venue. A sufficient amount of fixing material (Power Strips) will be available. Staff will be on hand at the conference to mount your poster and to answer additional questions. Please ensure being next to your poster during the Poster Session. The submitted abstract does not need to be presented during the session.

General Guidance for Creating the Poster
The poster needs to be self-explanatory. Every viewer should be able to discover the parts he is especially interested in. The poster structure should be kept simple and clearly arranged. A well-balanced mixture between pictures, graphs, tables etc. and text is recommended. The text should be kept short and clearly. The author can supply additional information in a discussion with the guest.

  • Layout: The Layout should support the content of the poster. It is recommended to use matt finish paper and to arrange the information boxes in columns. The viewer usually reads the poster like a page of a book. Ideally the introduction of your poster is placed left at the top and the conclusion on the right and lower.
  • Poster size: The display area for each poster on the panel of the poster board is 140cm high by 100cm wide (DIN A0 paper can be used). Do not exceed the poster dimensions which are allocated for each poster.
  • Illustrations: A clear readability of illustrations (dimensions, resolution and color) is expected. Every illustration needs to have a title and a source. Additional information can be provided in a legend. Illustrations, especially photographs and maps, need to have a good contrast and an indication of scale (if necessary).
  • Titles and text: The titles should address your topic in the smallest possible number of words. They should be short and concise. It is recommended to divide the content in different parts which can be presented in separate boxes/paragraphs with different titles. The paragraphs should describe the content in the smallest possible number of words. Numbered or bulleted lists can help the reader to overview a series of points. Specific text functions like bold, italic or underlines should not be used trough out an entire paragraph. They can be used to highlight special words, quotations or sentences. It is recommended to use a minimum of 50 point size for titles and around 25 point size for text. Titles and texts in large letters ensure that a larger number of people are able to read through the paper and avoid overcrowding.
  • Label: Please label your poster, including your abstract title, author and affiliation. The title should match the abstract that was submitted.
