Poster Session Presenter Guidelines

Poster sessions are located in GisNTU Convention Center

Please carefully review the information below to ensure that you have not missed any important information preparing your poster presentation for the 9th APRU Research Symposium on Multi-Hazards registration.

Prepare Your Poster

Each presenter is provided with a poster board of lateral A0 size.

  The presentation must cover the material as cited in the abstract.

 Place the title of your paper and your paper number prominently at the top of the poster board to allow viewers to identify your paper. Indicate 1) the abstract’s presentation number, 2) title, and 3) authors’ names.

  Highlight the authors’ names, e-mails, and address information in case the viewer is interested in contacting you for more information.

  Prepare all diagrams or charts neatly and legibly beforehand in a size sufficient to be read at a distance of 2 meters. Paragraph and figure caption text should be AT LEAST 24-point font (0.9 cm height) and headers AT LEAST 36 point font (1.2 cm height). Use creativity by using different font sizes and styles, perhaps even color.

  Use different colors and textures/symbols for each line or bar contained in your graph or chart. A serif font (e.g., Times) is often easier for reading main text, and a non-serif font (e.g., Arial or Helvetica) for headers and figure labels.

  Organize the paper on the poster board so it is clear, orderly, and self-explanatory. You have complete freedom in displaying your information in figures, tables, text, photographs, etc.

  Use squares, rectangles, circles, etc., to group similar ideas. Avoid cluttering your poster with too much text. Label different elements as I, II, III; or 1, 2, 3; or A, B, C, making it easier for a viewer to follow your display.

  Include the background of your research followed by results and conclusions. A successful poster presentation depends on how well you convey information to an interested audience.

  Please do not laminate your poster to ensure that it can be recycled.

Determine your Audio/Visual & Equipment Needs and Submit Your Order

To locate your assigned poster board, look for the sign marked with your session number at the beginning of each row of posters. Each poster board will be marked with an individual paper number.

  Posters should be set up between 7:30 am and 8:00 am on the day of your presentation.

  Posters must remain up the entire day. Do not remove posters before 6:00 pm.

  Please make sure your paper number is clearly visible on your poster board.

  Presenters must be available during break time. Signs indicating when you will be at your presentation can be picked-up at the Help Counter. After the session, please leave a note on your poster board as to where you can be reached in case someone wishes to discuss your research further.

  Push pins and other materials are available at the Help Counter.

Remove Your Poster

Posters must be removed between 6:00 pm and 6:30 pm. The Poster area will close at 6:30 pm each evening. Posters remaining after this time will be removed and recycled.
