Information for Poster Presentations

A poster is an ideal podium for an informal exchange of ideas and for discussions. EAGE believes that a poster presentation is equal in importance to an oral presentation.


 o In order to obtain a design for your poster which aims to generate active discussion it is recommended to:
 o Place the highlights at eye level (i.e. the upper half of the wall element)
 o Divide your poster into at least three equal columns for readability of text.
 o Illustrations may extend over 2 or 3 columns.

Text and character size:
 o Word-process all text (including captions) and print on a plain light coloured background;
 o Use a minimum font size of 18 points. (text should be readable from 2 meter away);
 o Please include the abstract title and the authors;
 o Should have a resolution of 300 dpi to be suitable for printing on A0;
 o Should be placed large enough on the poster so it is readable from five feet away;
Poster Format:
 o The maximum allowed paper size is A0 (larger posters may not fit on the poster board!);
 o Please use `Portrait` layout for your poster: there is 1 poster board available, per presentation.


As the presenter of a poster you have the distinct advantage of being able to draw the attention of your audience to particular illustrations. These can be studied and discussed in more detail. To have a successful presentation, make sure your poster is attractive, well laid out and largely self-explanatory. The explanation of your poster should complement your visual display. The poster presentation should be given during the allocated timeslot.

Please note that the presenting author MUST be on site to present the poster. Simply hanging up the poster does not suffice as a presentation. Should you encounter difficulties presenting the poster, you are urged to contact an EAGE representative, located at the registration desk. The poster will be on display throughout the session. It should be mounted before the poster session starts and removed at the conclusion of the day.

Please keep in mind that if you should fail to remove your poster at the end of the day, it will be thrown away. 


In order to facilitate presenting your poster, the EAGE will provide:
 o Display unit: One wall element (side by side, inside fits A0 poster size).
 o Poster number (not the title of your abstract and the list of authors!)
 o Attaching materials - Single and double sided tape (no tacks, nails, pins or staples are allowed).
