1 1.It is divided into several sections that identify the major components of the presentation. These include: a.a title banner giving the title, name(s) of the presenter(s) and faculty sponsor, plus the sponsoring department; and b.a number of panels each comprising a major heading text box plus any combination of body text boxes and/or graphics objects (photos, drawings). 2.Here are some considerations in creating panels. a.Panels should have numbers that suggest the logical order in which to review each panel. b.Sections to be included in panels may to be determined by discipline-specific formats for communicating ideas, e.g., Intro, Methods, Results, Conclusions. c.However, presenters are urged to remember that a poster often works better if it is treated as a multimedia exercise, that summarizes, emphasizes, and illustrates, rather than as a written report printed out on a really BIG piece of paper. 3.One PowerPoint slide is used to create the poster. It is set up to represent to scale the layout of one 3’x 4’ poster, corresponding to the dimensions of the cardboard poster boards that will be provided at each poster location during the poster session. When saved as a pdf file, without scaling, this file can then be submitted by the student’s faculty sponsor to Print Services for printing on the wide-format printer inkjet printer as a 3’x4’ rollup. 4.The font sizes recommended throughout this template are designed to be readable by a person standing 4 feet from the poster. Other choices should be tested against this standard.

Professor, sponsor), Dept. of 54 pt Arial A poster is an ideal medium for a presentation, if one places a priority on contact time and discussion over audience size. (major heading text box, 48 pt Book Antiqua) In a typical poster session, the presenter sets up his/her poster and stands by it for at least an hour to answer questions posed by visitors to the poster. This direct period of contact can be extended to indirect contact if presenters are offered the opportunity to leave their posters up for the full session, over as much as three hours, even in their absence. This enables those interested in the presentation to visit the poster and gain from it. This is in contrast to a typical oral session, in which the presenter has 10 minutes to make his/her presentation, usually followed by 5 minutes more for audience questions. However, the oral presenter has the advantage of giving his/her presentation to a captive audience of many people all at the same time. This PowerPoint file is intended to help the prospective poster presenter organize the layout of his/her presentation, with the template of a poster that can be modified easily to suit each presenter’s needs. It is intended to be printed on a single sheet of rollup paper, but can also be the basis for printing out individual sections onto tiled sheets of paper. (body text box, Arial 36) 1234 A successful poster requires careful thought given to a layout that provides to each visitor guidance in navigating through the presentation. (major heading text box, 48 pt Book Antiqua) Graphics are essential to some kinds of presentations. They are best prepared in other programs, and then inserted into the poster sized to their final dimensions. (major heading text box, 48 pt Book Antiqua) Make your presentation interactive. (major heading text box, 48 pt Book Antiqua) Such programs include Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, Corel Draw and PhotoPaint, and Deneba Canvas, as well as proprietary software bundled with most digital cameras. You will achieve the best results with vector-based artwork or 300 dpi for bitmapped images. (body text box, Arial 36) 1.This file can be printed from a traditional printer if scaled to fit 8.5 x 11” paper. Such printouts will produce handout copies of your poster for your visitors to take with them. Consider including contact information, such as an address, so that your visitors can get in touch with you after the poster session with questions for further discussion. 2.Be sure to indicate where your work will likely take you next, to give some indication of your extended thinking about the project. One approach is to finish with a set of unanswered questions. 3.Include a brief listing of scholarly references to cite sources that helped inform your work or to provide additional reading for your visitors. And be sure to credit your benefactors! (body text box, Arial 36)
