Poster Presentation Guideline

Guidelines for Poster Presentation in ISMM 2018


         Overview
  1. Poster presentation by the author will be done according to the date and timing mentioned by conference organizers. Presenters post their research design and findings on a poster board; i.e., a brief text clearly labeled and illustrated by photos, charts, graphs, tables.
  2. Presenters’ exact places will be indicated by their abstract number which will be posted on the poster boards.
  3. Conference volunteers will be available for help in the poster area.
  4. Format of the Poster:
    a) Portrait Layout
    b) Maximum Dimension ( 3 feet Width * 5 feet Height )
    c) Appropriate Font size
              ● Titles should be large enough to be read from 10 feet distance.
              ● Text size should be concise enough to be read from a distance of 4 feet  about 120 cm).
              ● Avoid using all capital letters. Use bulleted lists where possible instead of paragraphs.
  5. A section at the top of the poster must contain the Title, Authors, and Affiliations.
  6. The title should be the same as the title submitted with the abstract and appear in boldface at the top. 

    Poster Printing

    ● Presenting authors should print their physical poster based on the requirements listed in the sections above.
    ● Organizers do not print posters on behalf of presenters.

    Presenting Your Poster at the Conference

    ● You should set up your poster during the 30 minutes just prior to the Poster Session.
    ● If you think you may need certain materials, other than tape or the poster board itself, BRING IT WITH YOU.
    ● Plan to spend the entire session at your poster.

   Note to the Chairpersons, Speakers and the Audience:

                               All speakers are requested to send over their presentations preferably 24 hours before, or at the latest by 3 hours before their presentation schedule to ismmpresentations@gmail.com . We also request all the speakers and chairpersons to download materials they need for their presentation beforehand, as there shall be no Wi-Fi connection at the conference venue.

This ISMM World Congress meeting in Nepal is very serious about adherence to time. In fact the organizers hope that the meeting will be defined by chairpersons making sure that speakers absolutely adhere to their allotted time. The chairperson may “pull the plug” if the speaker continues to speak beyond the allotted time. When there are 3 minutes left in the talk, it is strongly recommended that a warning bell be rung by the chairperson to make the speakers aware of the time remaining. Speakers are strongly recommended to use their smartphones to time themselves if that helps them. The chairpersons should please remind the speakers about these points just prior to the session.

These steps are crucial so that all the many young participants in the meeting will appreciate the importance of adherence to time, something that is completely overlooked and under-emphasized in South Asia.

Along this vein, it is important that the chairpersons please instruct the audience that only one question will be allowed per person so that others in the audience may have a chance to ask questions too; and kindly to please keep the questions short and crisp.
