Poster Guidelines

Posters are a visual representation of your improvement story or research abstract, created by your team after your work is accepted.

Use these guidelines to create your poster:

• Posters should be no bigger than A1 if in landscape orientation, or A0 if in portrait orientation.
• Simplicity and clarity are the keys to an effective poster.
• Avoid overwhelming viewers with too much information—the casual viewer should be able to identify the main messages after a quick look at the poster.
• Simple visuals (attractive charts, tables, and graphics) will greatly increase the effectiveness of any poster.
• Symbols, letters, and numbers should be large enough to be seen from a distance of four feet.

You will be required to print and bring your poster with you to the meeting. We will provide poster boards and fixings.
