Poster Preparation Guidelines

Home > ISNCON 2015  


  • Your poster should include the abstract title and all authors at the top of the poster. The title lettering should not be less than a 48-point type.
  • Your poster should be readable from a distance of three feet or more. The body lettering should not be less than a 24-point type. Charts, drawings, and illustrations should be simple and more heavily drawn. Your poster should highlight and summarize the main points. A light background with dark lettering (preferably block style) is easiest to read.
  • It is helpful to viewers if you indicate (by numbers, letters, or arrows) a preferred sequence that should be followed in reading your poster.
  • Your poster should be self-explanatory so that you are free to supplement the information and discuss particular points raised by viewers during your presentation session. This session provides a more intimate forum for informal discussion, but discussion becomes difficult if you need to spend time explaining your poster to viewers.
  • Use velcro or push pins to attach your materials. Do not use glue, tape, or staples.
  • It is suggested that you include on your poster a name, address, phone number, and email (or business cards) in case viewers would like additional information.



  • THE ISN will provide a printed number on your poster board. This number will correspond with the number in your acceptance letter. Do not remove this number from your poster board.
  • Your poster board surface will be approximately 6 feet high and 4 feet wide. Your poster must fit within this space.
  • Do not write or paint on the poster boards.
  • Set up and dismantle your materials on your poster board during the date/times noted in the “Poster Presentation Schedule.” Posters should be on display all day while the exhibit hall is open.
  • Posters not removed by the poster dismantling times will be discarded.
