The (CERSH) Rural Sexual Health Conference 2015
Poster presenters, please ensure that you follow the guidelines below:

  • Posters will be displayed according to the poster number and floor plan published in the Conference Program and Abstract book.

  • Posters will be displayed on a free standing vertical board, poster presenters will be provided with half a panel for their display.

  • The poster dimensions should be a maximum of 850mm wide x 1100mm high (PORTRAIT). The boards are made of a material to which Velcro tape or pins can adhere. Limited tape will be provided.

  • The conference organisers will be supplying plastic sleeves on all Poster boards and we encourage you to print off some A4 handouts of your poster and place them in the sleeve for delegates to take.

  • Presenters are asked to be in attendance at their poster during the poster viewing times shown above to answer questions and discuss aspects of your research. You are also encouraged to advertise on your poster other times when you are available to discuss your work. Contact details during and after the Conference should also be included.

  • In preparing your poster, you should not attempt to detail your entire project or research history. Present only enough data to support conclusions or to explain the point(s) you wish to make. Data should be kept to a minimum in favour of diagrams and photographs. Aim to put across a simple message in an eye-catching manner.

  • All posters must carry a title. If a short title different from the published full title is used, the latter should be included as a subtitle in smaller type.

  • All text lettering should be large enough to be legible at a distance of 1.5m. Lettering used for titles should be 24 point size minimum (Times New Roman or Arial are good fonts to use).

  • Large type from a word processor, photo-enlarged typing, stencilling, rub-down letters (eg, Letraset) are recommended for text and captions. Freehand lettering is not recommended except for last minute alterations. All text must be in English.

  • Photographs and diagrams should be large enough to be read at a distance of 1.5metres.
