Each poster will be given a number and allotted a space 120cm high x 90cm wide (Portrait). The spaces will be numbered ahead of time so that you will know where to place your poster. Pushpins will be provided for mounting the poster.

Indicate the title, and name(s) of author(s) at the top of your poster so that it may be identified easily. The lettering for this heading should be at least 56 points high; typed material should use the largest font possible, but at least 30 points in size. As a general guideline, text and illustrations should be comfortably read from a distance of 1m.

Your poster should be printed on lightweight materials that could be supported by pushpins.  Illustrated materials should be kept simple.  It also might be useful to have small copies of the poster for handouts.
