Planning Your Poster
First, check with conference organizers on their specifications of size and orientation, before you start your poster. You must make note of the maximum poster size and display area, the orientation, horizontal format (landscape) or vertical format (portrait). Bear in mind that you do not need to fill the whole space allocated by some organizers (i.e. 4 x 8 ft).
Re-write your paper into poster format i.e. simplify everything and avoid data overkill. The title, headlines and subheadings should be short, yet meaningful. The content should be concise, to the point, and well organized, presenting only enough data to support your conclusions.
Do a spell-check and have someone else proofread your poster, before you bring it to Biomedical Communications. Photos, graphs, diagrams and logos can easily be imported into your poster from scans and existing files. When scanning, make sure to use an appropriate resolution (150 dpi at final printed size). Large files can always be minimized without compromising the integrity of the image. However, be aware of “resolution overkill” when scanning, as it may result in unnecessarily enormous file sizes.
