Guidelines for Poster presentation
·         The poster size should be  125x120  cm  (protrait)
·         A poster is a graphically based approach to presenting research. In presenting your research with a poster, you should aim to use the poster as a means for generating active discussion of the research.
·         SIMPLICITY IS THE KEY. Keep to the point, and don't try to cover too many things. Present only enough data to support your conclusions. On the other hand, make sure that you present sufficient data to support your conclusions.
·         Limit the text to about one-fourth of the poster space, and use "visuals" (graphs, photographs, schematics, maps, etc.) to tell your "story."
·         Text should be readable from five feet away.
·         Lettering for the title should be large. Use all capital letters for the title.
·         Present numerical data in the form of graphs, rather than tables (graphs make trends in the data much more evident). If data must be presented in table-form, KEEP IT SIMPLE.
·         Visuals should be simple and bold. Leave out or remove any unnecessary details.
·         Make sure that any visual can "stand alone" (i. e., graph axes are properly labeled, maps have north arrows and distance scales, symbols are explained, etc.).
·         Use color to enhance comprehension, not to decorate the poster. Neatly coloring black-line illustrations with color pencils is entirely acceptable.
·         Make sure that the text and the visuals are integrated. Figures should be numbered consecutively according to the order in which they are first mentioned in the text.
·         Each visual should have a brief title (for example: Figure 1- Location of study area).
·         Cite and reference any sources of information other than your own, just as you would do with a research paper. The "References Cited" is placed at the end of the poster.
Note: All poster should be mounted on Day 1 at the designated place on the conference venue. The posters can stay hanged for all the conference days. However,  poster presenters are required to attend their posters during the designated times (check the conference program !).  There will be 3 prizes for the best posters.

Poster boards:
The dimensons of the poster boards are 150cm x 120cm (portrait)
