1 Abstract This is a Microsoft Powerpoint template that has column widths and font sizes optimized (according to Biologist Collin Purrington) for printing a 36 x 56” poster—just replace the text with your actual content. Try to keep your total word count under 1000 (but even fewer is better if you can make your point with fewer words and more pictures!). More tips can be found at the companion site, “Advice on designing scientific posters,” located at, http://www.swarthmore.edu/NatSci/cpurrin1/posteradvice.htm A few layout considerations This paragraph has “justified” margins, but be aware that simple left-justification (other paragraphs) is infinitely better if your font doesn’t “space” nicely when fully justified. Sometimes spacing difficulties can be fixed by manually inserting hyphens into longer words (Powerpoint doesn’t do this automatically). Colin says: Your main text is easier to read if you use a “serif” font. Use a non-serif font for title and section headings. Use a non-serif font for figure legends, graph text, etc. Garikai says: I don’t know if I believe Colin. you should feel free to have some “artistic” freedom. Be brief, and opt for bulleted lists, photographs, drawings and general conciseness whenever possible. Note: this is already probably getting to be too much text! The big theorem The Euclid-Gauss Theorem: Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah. Proof: Main point 1 Main point 2 Main point 3 A few technical details on this point: Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah Concluding point! Exanple: Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Part 1of the example Part 2 of the example Part 3 of the example A few more technical details on this part: Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah More stuff…blah, blah,blah…. Bring it home Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah.

If you use graphics from the web, make sure they print well at the large size of the poster. Fig. 3(a-c). Some more stuff related to the proof. (a) (b)(c) For more information see: http://mathstat.swarthmore.edu/webspot Fig. 1. Here’s a picture. Use a non-serif font for figure legend text. Try not to make the legend longer than this. Try to be consistent about where you put the legend relative to the picture. Acknowledgements I want to thank so and so for their help.
