Guidelines for Accepted Posters

Poster displays provide a forum for informal discussion. Ensue your poster is self-explanatory, so that you are free to supplement and discuss particular points raised by viewers.

Remember that your material/illustrations will be viewed from distances of one metre or more. Lettering should be as large as possible and preferably in bold type.

SIMPLICITY is the key:

  • brief captions
  • tables that are few in number but clear
  • succinct text


  • Each poster is limited in size to 1189 mm wide x 841mm high (A0 size; landscape orientation)  download powerpoint template IFPA_2015-poster-template
  • Your poster must be landscape orientation

Poster boards will be Velcro receptive boards. Velcro will be provided if required.

You may wish to bring A4 copies of your poster for distribution at the Conference during the poster session. No secretarial services will be available, so please have all your poster material prepared prior to the Conference.


All poster presentations will be displayed and viewed in Boulevard Foyer. Catering breaks will also be in this room, and this will maximise the chances of each paper being seen by as many conference delegates as possible.
