Poster presentation guidelines

Please note that poster presenters at the Asia Pacific Stroke Conference 2017 are required to produce and print their posters at their own expense.


  • Posters will be displayed on free-standing boards within the Nanjing International Youth Cultural Center, specifically within the Nanjing Hall Foyer.
  • Your poster space allocation is A0 size (841mm wide X 1189mm high)
  • Please note the poster space is extremely strict due to the limitations of the poster board size. If your poster is unable to fit within the set guidelines, your poster will not be displayed.
  • Posters will need to be affixed with tape (not Velcro or glu-tak). The venue will have tape available to you to hand your poster.
  • Please note that the number allocated to your poster presentation will be on the corresponding poster board in the exhibition.


  • Posters will be displayed for the duration of the conference.
  • Your poster MUST be displayed by no later than 1000 hours on Friday 27 October 2017.
  • Your poster MUST be removed by no later than 1730 hours on Saturday 28 October 2017.

There are dedicated poster viewing sessions as outlined below. It is expected that poster presenters be available at their poster during these times to answer questions about their work.

  • Posters should include the name(s) and affiliations of the author(s) to facilitate identification at the conference.
  • All posters must carry a title. If a short title (different from the published full title) is used, the latter should be included as a subtitle in smaller type.
  • In preparing the poster you should not attempt to detail your entire research history. Present only enough data to support conclusions or to explain the point(s) you wish to make. Data should be kept to a minimum in favour of diagrams and photographs. Aim to put across a simple message in an eye-catching manner.
  • All text lettering, diagrams and photographs should be large enough to be legible at a distance of 1.5m. Lettering used for titles should be 24 point minimum (preferably Arial font). Large type from a word processor, photo-enlarged typing, stencilling, rub-down letters (eg Letraset) are recommended for text and captions. Freehand lettering is not recommended except for last-minute alterations.
