                               General Remarks for Poster Presentations



At Marie Curie Actions (MCA's) events, emphasis will be given to the presentations at the poster
exhibition, with direct interaction between authors and audience.

The ideal poster is designed to attract attention, provide a brief overview of your works and results,
and initiate discussion. You should ask yourself: would you like to read it all if it wasn’t your poster?
Prepare a short presentation of about 5 or 10 minutes that you can periodically give to those viewing
your poster.

A sheet containing the title of your poster with your name will be mounted in front of your poster
board. Please prepare your poster carefully in advance of the MCA event by following this
recommendations and guidelines:

       The usable space on the poster boards is 120 cm in height, 84 cm in width (A0 Format). The
        boards will be illuminated sufficiently by the room light. Tapes and tags for fixing your poster
        onto the boards will be provided (more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paper_size )

       In presenting your research/outreach results with a poster, you should aim to use it as a means
        for generating active discussion of the research.

       Limit the text to about one-fourth of the poster space, and use "visuals" (graphs, photographs,
        schematics, maps, QR codes, etc.) to tell your "story."

       In some conferences the organisers are asking for "digital posters": In this way you can also
        use interactive visuals, video clips and QR codes.

    Please avoid these common errors:

             o     The size of characters is too small to be seen from 2 or 3 metres distance,

             o     Only copies of the paper are put on the board,

             o     Only pictures and tables are put on the board without any explanation or title,

             o     There is no summary.

             o     Not mention of your project references or acknowledgment of the FP-7 PEOPLE
                   Programme (Marie Curie Actions).

To avoid common errors listed above, use large characters at least 1 cm in height. Use a light coloured
background such as light blue or yellow rather than white. Please give a title and provide a brief
explanation of each section.

Design and layout specifications
         The entire poster must be mounted on a stand. The A0 format poster does not necessarily have
          to fill the entire working area.
         The poster can be portrait or landscape.
         A banner displaying your project name (see header above) should be positioned at top-centre
          of the poster. The flag of the European Union as well as the official logo of the Marie Curie
          Actions must be placed on the right and left side at the top of the A0 format poster. The logo
          of your project together with the acknowledgment (Annex II of the project contract), the QR
          code of your poster and your personal data (name, working address of the host organisation,
          email, telephone, etc) will be located in the footer of the poster (see below). More
          information about the QR Code available under: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QR_code
         Make it obvious to the viewer how to progressively view the poster. The poster generally
          should read from left to right, and top to bottom. Numbering the individuals panels, or
          connecting them with arrows, is a standard guidance system.
         Leave some open space in the design. An open layout is less tiring to the eye and mind.
Lettering
         Word-process all text (including captions). Print on plain white paper with a laser printer or
          inkjet printer.
         Text should be readable from 2-3 m away. Use a minimum font size of 1 cm.
         Lettering for the title should be large (at least 70-point font). Use all capital letters for the title.
Visuals
         Present numerical data in the form of graphs, rather than tables (graphs make trends in the
          data much more evident). If data must be presented in table-form, KEEP IT SIMPLE.
         Visuals should be simple and bold. Leave out or remove any unnecessary details.
         Make sure that any visual can "stand alone" (i.e., graph axes are properly labelled, maps have
          north arrows and distance scales, symbols are explained, etc.).
         Use colour to enhance comprehension, not to decorate the poster. Neatly colouring black-line
          illustrations with colour pencils is entirely acceptable.
         Make sure that the text and the visuals are integrated. Figures should be numbered
          consecutively according to the order in which they are first mentioned in the text.
          Each visual should have a brief title (for example: Figure 1- Location of study area).
         The minimum recommended size for photographs and figures is 20 cm by 25 cm.

Text
         Keep the text brief. Blocks of text should not exceed three paragraphs (viewers won't bother to
          read more than that). Use text to (a) introduce the study (what hypothesis was tested or what
          problem was investigated? why was the study worth doing?), (b) explain visuals and direct
          viewers attention to significant data trends and relationships portrayed in the visuals, and
          (c) state and explain the interpretations that follow from the data. In many cases, conclusions
          can be summarized in a bullet-point list.
         Depending upon the stage or nature of your project, the text could also include sections on
          future research plans or questions for discussion with viewers.
         Cite and reference any sources of information other than your own, just as you would do with
          a research paper. Ask your supervisor about the particular citation system that you should use

        (every discipline uses slightly different styles). The "References Cited" is placed at the end of
        the poster.
Miscellaneous Suggestions

       SIMPLICITY IS THE KEY. Keep to the point, and don't try to cover too many things. Present
        only enough data to support your conclusions. On the other hand, make sure that you present
        sufficient data to support your conclusions.

       When you begin to make your poster, first create a list of the visuals that you would use if you
        were describing your project with only the visuals. Write the text after you have created the
        list of visuals.
