Guidelines for Poster Presentations


There will be three guided poster sessions during the Scientific Student Conference. During these sessions authors must be present at their poster board. They should be prepared to provide a three minutes’ summary of their poster presentation.

  • Poster authors must consider that they are responsible for printing and bringing the poster to the Conference

  • Poster Boards: Size of the poster boards is 0,95m  x 1,24 m. Poster size should not exceed A0 format (841 mm x 1189mm) in portrait (vertical) set-up.

  • Posters are located in the foyer of the Copenhagen Plant Science Centre you will be guided to the location when you arrive. Pins are available at the registration & information desk.

  • Poster set-up: Each poster presenter will tack his/her poster on a dedicated board. It is your responsibility to set-up your poster.

  • Authors are encouraged to include a photo of themselves on the poster so that they can be identified.


  • Place the title of your paper prominently at the top of the poster board to allow viewers to identify your paper easily. Indicate the title and the author(s) name(s) of your paper. The title of your poster must be the same as the title of your submitted abstract.

  • Highlight the author's name and address information, in case the viewer is interested in contacting him/her for more information. Prepare all diagrams or charts neatly and legibly beforehand, in a size sufficient to be read at a distance of 1.5–2.0 meters. The type should be at least 2.5 cm high. Use creativity by using different font sizes and styles, perhaps even colour and double-space all text. Use different colours or textures for each line or bars contained in your graph or chart.

  • Organize the paper on the poster board so that it is clear, orderly, and self-explanatory. You have complete freedom. The presentation must cover the same material as the abstract. Label different elements as 1, 2, 3, or A, B, C. This will make it easier for a viewer to follow your display.

  • Include the background of your research, followed by results and conclusions. A successful poster presentation depends on how well you convey the information to an interested audience
