Poster Presentation Instructions

Introduction

An ideal poster should cover the main points of the research work, attract the attention of the public and promote discussion and questioning during the time assigned for the presentation. Organize your ideas in a way that these objectives can be achieved. Posters should be simple and yet elaborate; they should be prepared having in mind, primarily, their use as a basis for the presentation and discussion of the work that is already published in the Conference Proceedings. However, they should be also self-intelligible. Make your poster presentation easy to read with good visual display. Remember the audience will have only a short time frame to pay attention to your presentation. Use color for highlighting and to make your poster more attractive. Use pictures, diagrams, cartoons, figures, etc., rather than only text wherever possible. Make your poster as self-explanatory as possible. This will save your time to use for discussions and questions.


Displaying and sizes

Display boards will be provided by the Conference. The boards will have a sign noting your poster number; the numbering is provided in the Conference Program, and will have a prefix (A, B, C, D or E) indicating the general subject of the work. Posters should be designed to be placed on a poster board with a display space of 1.20 m vertically and 0.90 m horizontally (approximately 42 inches vertical by 35 inches horizontal). Therefore, posters should measure between 0.90 m to 1,20 m (height) and 0.80 to 0.90 m (width). The poster should be legible from a distance of at least 1.50 m. Posters will be mounted using double-sided adhesive tape or hang up using a string to a panel that is made out of Formica (TS) melaminic finishing. No pushpins or Velcro can be used to mount your poster. Please do not write or paint on the poster boards. Each presenting author is responsible for all materials needed for the proper mounting of the poster.


Poster design

The title of your poster should appear at the top in CAPITAL letters, using ARIAL size 46 to 48, or similar. Scientific names for species should follow the international rules and be in italics. You could use the symbol of your institute and/or your national flag, to help the public to identify the origin of the poster. The title should be the same as the title of your paper or summary. Below the title, put the author(s)` name(s), and underline the presenting author. Bellow the name(s), put the affiliation(s) and address(es) of the author(s), as well as the email address of the presenting author. Use Arial 32 or similar font size, and center aligned.
The title of the sections in the poster (e.g. INTRODUCTION, MATERIAL AND METHODS, etc.) should be in capital letters, Arial 38 or similar, bold and center aligned. The text on your poster should be in Arial 36 or similar, with or without justification.
The posters can include an Abstract , if the author(s) think it is helpful.
The information may conveniently be divided into sections, starting with an Introduction and ending with Conclusion .
Other sections can be Objectives , Material and Methods , and Results . Acknowledgements can also be included at the end of the text.Literature can be included, if absolutely necessary, but try to avoid it.


Other information

Prepare a short presentation that you can periodically give to those assembled around your poster. Plan to spend the entire period of your assigned presentation time at your poster location (as this is a prerequisite to receive the Certificate of Presentation). If there is more than one author attending the conference, all may attend the poster presentation to aid in the presentation and discussion and to provide the main presenter with a chance to rest and to answer questions. There will be no audio-visual equipment for poster presentations, as space does not permit it. Aisles between posters must be kept clear of any chair or other items that may obstruct the flow of traffic of people through the poster area. Posters should be hand carried to El-Minia, Egypt. Do not ship the poster to the Conference Local Organizing Committee (LOC). The LOC assumes no responsibility for receiving or mounting any poster. The posters will be displayed in the assigned area at the "Suzann Mubarak Center for Arts and Letters, Minia University Campus, El-Minia". Dates and times of sessions are as follows, and will also be provided in the Official Program. Make sure to bring all necessary materials you may need to repair the poster after traveling, such as transparent adhesive tape, an extra set of your poster papers, as well as the materials necessary for the mounting of the poster.
