1 Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology, Graz/Austria, April 2004, Title of poster: Corresponds to the title of your revised abstract Introduction The page size of this poster template is A0 (84x119cm), and it is in “portrait” (vertical) format. This corresponds to the poster boards available at CIM04 and is the recommended poster size. Your poster should begin with a brief introduction (placed in the top left corner of the poster) and end (in the opposite corner) with a closing statement. Please use the same headings that you used in your revised abstract. This will help conference participants, who will already be familiar with this format, to understand your material more quickly. Feel free to add additional subheadings. In this document, headings are 40-point and subheadings are 32-point. Headings are centered and subheadings are left-justified. To replace this text by your own, highlight it with the mouse and type in your own text, or copy and paste your text from another document. Fonts and colors The main text of your poster should be between 24 and 32 points. Appropriately elegant and readable fonts include Arial, Helvetica and Verdana. The color of the text, title and poster background can easily be changed. For example, select Format from the menu along the top, then select Text, then Color. Please change some of the formatting of this model to your personal taste. Otherwise, you may find that your poster looks very similar to someone else’s! Illustrations and graphs Images such as photographs, graphs, diagrams, logos, etc, can easily be inserted into the poster if they are in a compatible format. We recommend JPEG or TIFF. Illustrations To insert scanned images into your poster, go through the menus as follows: Insert / Picture / From File… then find the file on your computer, select it, and press OK. Be aware that images require a relatively large amount of memory. The average color photo (13 x 18cm at 180dpi) would be about 3Mb (1Mb for B/W greyscale). Images should of course be original and not copied from books, articles or the internet. Graphs Simple graphs can be created in MS Excel or PowerPoint. For more complex graphs you may need a more dedicated graphics program. Use only a program in which it is possible to save the graph as a JPEG or TIFF image. Insert the graph into the poster just as you would do any other illustration. Printing Once you have completed your poster, save it to diskette and take it to your university printer or to a printing shop, or send it to them by . Some suggestions:  Ask first for an A3 size draft print for proof reading.  Find out the cost of laminating your poster before ordering it, because it can be quite expensive.  Don’t make your first visit to the printer the day before your flight. Call them at least a month in advance and ask their advice on how to proceed. First Author Department of Aaaaaa Aaaaaa, University of Bbbbb Bbbbbb Country Aims This model poster is intended to give you an idea of what your poster might look like, and to get you started. Of course you will want to change things around to suit your material. You will almost certainly want to change the number of sections and figures and to enlarge or reduce the space devoted to each elements. This is easy to do! Just grab one of the “handles” on the edge of this section and move it around a bit. You will soon get the hang of it! If you make a mistake, use control-Z to go back to where you were before the mistake. Method Here are some tips for creating a successful poster.  Simplify everything! Avoid data overkill.  Leave breathing space around you text. Don’t overcrowd things.  Use easily readable font sizes and styles. Don’t Capitalize Headings. Use bold and italic characters instead of underlining.  Prefer illustrations over text wherever possible. Try using photographs or coloured graphs. Avoid long numerical tables.  Spell-check your work and get someone else to proof- read it. Conclusion (or Implications) We suggest beginning this section with a simple, direct statement of the message that you would like people to take home with them. Be sure that it follows directly from the materials and evidence you have presented. Add some other important final points. That’s it! Acknowledgements The organizing committee of CIM04 would like to thank all participants presenting posters for their kind cooperation. We are looking forward to meeting you and admiring your art work. Heading of illustration We suggest setting captions in Times or Times New Roman or equivalent, italic, between 18 and 24 points. Right aligned if it refers to a figure on its right. Caption starts right at the top edge of the picture (graph or photo). Heading of illustration We suggest setting captions in Times or Times New Roman or equivalent, italic, 18 to 24 points, to the length of the column in case a figure takes more than 2/3 of column width.
