TREVOR Symposium 2023

Poster Presentation Guide

You will be notified of your poster session’s day in advance of the meeting, and you are expected to be available to present your poster during your designated poster session. 

TREVOR Symposium 2023

Preparing your poster 

  • The presentation must cover the material as cited in your abstract.
  • Place the title of your abstract prominently at the top of the poster board to allow viewers to identify your work. 
  • Highlight the authors’ names, e-mails, and affiliation information in case the viewer is interested in contacting you for more information.
  • All diagrams and charts must be neat and legible. 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 different colours 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.
  • Organise the work on the poster so it is clear, orderly, and self-explanatory. Feel free to display your information in figures, tables, text, photographs, etc.
  • 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.
  • Don’t forget to acknowledge sources of funding for the work and/or your participation in the meeting.
  • Save your poster as a PDF.

Posters prepared for the TREVOR Symposium must be portrait-oriented, no bigger than A0 – 841 mm (width) x 1189 mm (height).
