We suggest designing your poster in the following sections:

  • Introduction and Purpose
  • Methods
  • Results
  • Conclusions

The title should be emphasized by the use of bold typeface. This writing should be easily readable at a distance of 2 – 3 meters. The text can be broken up by the inclusion of drawings and/or photos.
