Poster Presentation Instructions

Poster presentations consist of freestanding display boards, on which authors will present their research to conference participants in a dialogic and interactive way.

The poster is usually a mixture of a brief text mixed with tables, graphs, pictures, and other presentation formats. At the congress, the researcher stands by the poster display while other participants can come and view the presentation and interact with the author.

You need to prepare, print, and take your own poster to the congress location. No printing options are available at the congress.

  • Size of your poster: format A0 (841x1189 mm) = max. size. EUPRERA congress team will provide magnets to fasten your materials to the display boards.

  • Please show up 15 min. before the session starts to set-up your poster.


  • Important information should be readable from about 2.5 meter away

  • Title is short and draws interest

  • Word count of about 300 to 800 words. Determine the key points of your paper and highlight these, rather than trying to cover the whole paper.

  • Text is clear and to the point

  • Use of bullets, numbering, and headlines make it easy to read

  • Effective use of graphics, color and fonts

  • Consistent, clean and creative layout

  • Includes acknowledgments (if needed), your name, institutional affiliation, and contact details
