E-POSTER RECOMMENDATIONS 

  • E-poster files submitted should be a PDF image of your poster or, you may format your poster onto a maximum of four PowerPoint slides with the slides saved as a one PDF file. 
  • Clear fonts such as Arial or Calibri are recommended.
  • Suggested resolution for any images or graphics is 300 dpi.
  • It is better to use high quality images/graphs when creating the poster and then convert it to PDF. Avoid stretching images manually as they will lose quality/clarity once zoomed in. 
  • Provide clear labels or headings for each section of your presentation to avoid confusion.
  • On light backgrounds (white, yellow, light blue) use dark fonts (black, navy blue, dark green). On dark backgrounds (blue, purple) use light fonts (white, yellow, cyan etc).  Avoid the use of red or green in fonts or backgrounds as they are colors that are difficult to read.
