We are a little bit reluctant in giving too detailed instructions for preparing poster presentations, because we do not want to suppress any kind of creativity of the authors. Nevertheless, we think that some guidelines, recommendations and advises may help some of you in preparing a poster of a higher quality.
The lay-out of the poster
The contents of the poster might be subdivided as follows:
Header - Give title of poster, authors, affiliation, addresses (idea: put your photograph in the header)
Problem definition & objectives - Make clear which problem you have studied and the aims of your work.Refer briefly to previous work. Give the perspectives if you really attain the set objectives.
Strategy, methods, theory - Indicate HOW you have tried to solve the set problem: general strategy, experimental methods, theoretical aspects, ....Emphasise novel theoretical and experimental approaches.
Results - Present your findings to justify the conclusions e.g. via tables and graphs. Do not overload tables and graphs with data.
Conclusions - Draw conclusions about what you have learned from your work. Indicate the significance of the conclusion(s).
References - Give maximum 4 key references to position your work.
Acknowledgements - Should be mentioned if any.
