Poster Session

About the Poster Session


In addition to the traditional competitive and interactive papers, we welcome posters to any of the conference tracks to be presented in a dedicated poster session. As you know, the poster session at AIB-LAT 2018 is designed to push early-stage work towards high-impact contributions. Here presenters will exhibit the poster they prepared in a large poster hall where all conference participants have the chance to walk by and engage in a fruitful conversation. There will be no activities parallel to the poster session. This means many additional scholars will be interested in discussing your ideas. Participants who will present their poster at this session will receive a regular attendance mention in the conference booklet and are considered “active participants”.

Content, Layout and Presentation of the Actual Poster


Please make sure the poster you bring to Lima fulfills the following criteria:

  • Poster size is 27 inches by 34 inches or 71cm by 86 cm
  • All text on the poster is in English
  • The poster is printed in portrait, not landscape format
  • Print of title, authors, and affiliations is 3 cm, 2 cm, and 1 cm tall, respectively
  • Poster contains contact information of the main author
  • Poster is made from material that is easy to fix to a poster board with push pins
  • All materials on the poster should be easily readable from more than 1 m away

Preparing your poster


In general, posters should be self-supporting. The presenter should only need to supplement or discuss particular points after inquiry. Make sure your poster is structured logically, from top to bottom or with a similar easy-to-follow logical structure. Try to be as concise and brief as possible. Illustrations, graphics, and figures greatly increase readability. Make use of them extensively and minimize narrative and long paragraphs. Bullet lists are also a concise and effective way to communicate a series of points. An excellent poster is designed to:

  • Attract and initiate attention
  • Provide a concise overview of the key points of your work

These steps are good practice in preparing a poster. Following them will help you get the most out of the poster session at AIB-LAT. Please note that it is the authors’ responsibility to put the poster up in the designated poster area at AIBLAT2017 (and take it down at the end of the session)
