Guidelines for e-Poster Submission – ISGCON2018

Electronic Posters or e-Posters are similar to traditional paper/flex posters but displayed on site on a 50” display. All accepted posters will be displayed on e-Poster stations.

Please note that, there will not be any physical posters at the ISGCON2018

The format/size of the posters should be in PowerPoint, Landscape, one slide only, which should be in 16:9 ratio.

You can also make posters in pdf or jpeg format as in traditional way and then paste it in PowerPoint. But, then these cannot be edited later if required.

By default, newer versions of PowerPoint use 16:9 ratio but those using older versions make sure that you change the format from standard i.e. 4:3 to wide screen 16:9 ratio by going to design and then to slide size in the tool bar.

To be of value, your poster should not be too cluttered. It should be set out in a clear and logical manner, with reading matter reduced to an essential minimum. Lettering, including figure legends, labelling, symbols & graphs etc, should be large enough to be legible when viewed on a 50" screen. Ordinary type-face is NOT adequate. Drawings, diagrams, and photos are extremely helpful and often necessary to display results and conclusions. Make sure that your illustrations are easy to understand; do not overload any chart or drawing with information.

Recommended Font Sizes and Styles:
You should use dark text colours on a light background, or vice versa. Recommended fonts are Times New Roman, Calibri, Verdana and Arial, as these are easy to read, and it is possible that other fonts may have cross-operating system display issues.

Videos & animations are not allowed in your e-poster
You will be informed of your poster number as well as your computer assignment before the meeting. However, when you arrive at the meeting, check to confirm the day, time and monitor for your presentation, in case there have been last minute changes.
Please check the sample template and see how this will be seen on a monitor. You can use any template of your choice which fit your paper.
Please note the last date for submission/upload your e-poster is 24th November 2018
