14th International Topical Meeting
on Nuclear Applications of Accelerators,
Vienna, Austria, 5-9 April 2020
GUIDELINES FOR AUTHORS ON POSTER PREPARATION AND PRESENTATION
The poster should be a visual presentation of your submitted full paper. Posters should meet the following criteria:
All poster orientation should be in portrait format and in A0 size: 1189 mm high and 841 mm wide (33.1 × 46.8 inches).
Logos and Poster Number
Kindly write the paper ID (XXXXX) on the upper right (80 point font size). You can insert the logos of the major institutions anywhere on the Poster as per your requirement.
The title should be the same as in the submitted abstract and full paper. The top of the poster should display, in lettering of 60 point font size, the following information: Title of the Paper, Name(s) of the Author(s), Affiliation(s) and Email of main contact author.
48 point font size is recommended for headings (capital letters).
The poster should be easily readable at a distance of two meters. Use UPPER and lower case for general content, as all-capital text is difficult to read. Avoid using mixtures of type/font styles. Text and presentation should be in English only.
Single spaced 32 font size is recommended. The text should be concise and easy to read. Avoid using full sentences, but rather use short text in bullet point format. The message that your poster contains should be clear and understandable without the requirement of oral explanation. If relevant, methods should be presented simply and concisely.
After the title, the two most important sections are the Introduction and the Conclusions. On the basis of these two sections, a reader will decide whether to consider the poster details and perhaps talk to the presenter. These sections need to be very simple, concise and visually attractive.
Results should be presented graphically if possible. Avoid large tables of data. Results should be in line with those originally submitted in your abstract. If using tables, they should have a short heading (28 point font size italic).
Use pictures, graphs and colour. “A picture is worth a thousand words…”. Figure legends are essential and should be short but informative (use 28 point font size italic for legends).
If using graphs, for visual effect, we recommend that graphs be no smaller than 12 cm x 18 cm.
Photographs should be no smaller than 12 cm x 18 cm and use a resolution of at least 600 dpi.
Use the space on the poster to attract your audience for discussion, not to present complex details of methods and results.
Please be aware that all display material should be prepared in advance. Pins for mounting posters are available on-site. It is not possible to print posters at the conference site. However, there are several printing centres in the vicinity of the Vienna International Centre where you can print your poster if needed, please see information on some printing centers below.
PRESENTATION AT THE CONFERENCE
Each presenter is responsible for affixing their poster onto their allocated board. Pins will be provided on each board and it will be marked clearly with their related paper number. Should you require any assistance staff at the conference registration desk will be there to assist you.
Authors are requested to be present at their posters during the dedicated poster sessions for discussion with interested participants.
Please remove all your materials from the poster boards at the end of the conference.
If the main author and/or presenter of the poster is under 35 years old, (s)he is eligible to take part in the Young Investigator Poster Competition. If you are interested, please send an inquire to Ms Valeriia Starovoitova at firstname.lastname@example.org.
