Other Notes:

  • Color: It is recommended to choose a lighter color for the poster background, preferably white. There are no other color restrictions for the text and images.
  • Font: Make sure the poster title and the authors' names are clearly identified. Choose a font size such that text on your poster is legible when you are zoomed out from your digital poster.
  • General Design: Avoid using excessive text as it makes it difficult to follow the poster. Use appropriate graphics wherever possible as they can convey information effectively and make the poster look appealing.
